The new reliable nearline model features a top storage capacity of up to 2TB in a 3.5-inch form factor and leading-edge 3Gb/sec Serial ATA (SATA) interface. Intended for 24 x 7 operation, the MKx002TSKB also includes features that are critical to business operations such as Error Correction (ECC), Rotational Vibration (RV) technology for multi-drive systems, and enhanced power condition state technology. The MKx002TSKB provides a flexible and cost effective storage solution for enterprise applications including entry-level servers, storage arrays, RAID systems and digital video systems.
This review is from: TOSHIBA MK1002TSKB 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Hard Drive
Pros: powers up, hot-swappable, temps are decent, supports the smartctl scterc command. supposedly enterprise ready.
Cons: high Load_Cycle_Count values as reported by SMART tools. i'm running this drive as part of a ZFS raidz2 on solaris (running on a *relatively* low traffic server) and the drive is constantly parking/unparking. linux users appear to have a workaround for this via hdparm and disabling the drive's power management but that tool does not run on solaris. my ratio of Load_Cycle_Count:Power_On_Hours is incredibly high.
Other Thoughts: my drive array has 2 flavors of seagate drives, 2 flavors of WD drives, and samsung drives. none of the other drives have this problem, only the toshiba.
