1 out of 5 eggsI can't believe the failure rate

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA050 500GB 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Poor quality, abysmal failure rate

Other Thoughts: If you look at the label, these drives clearly state that they are made by Hitachi. What the label doesn't mention, is that these are probably the rejects from the Hitachi plants that didn't quite pass QA during testing, so they slap a Toshiba sticker on them and sent them out the doors anyway knowing full well they're faulty. It's the only reason I can think of why there's nearly as many 1-egg "DOA" reviews as there are 5-egg reviews.

Seriously. Look at the reviews for any Hitachi (HGST) drives and compare them to those of the Toshibas. In fact, HGST actually makes one of the few 5-egg-rated hard drives available on this site.

5 out of 5 eggsTried it, and so far, I'm really pleased!

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA050 500GB 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: I picked up this Toshiba 500GB SATA drive with some trepidation due to all the bad reviews...and several months later, it's still going along perfectly in a Dell Optiplex 780 tower.

Cons: While I can't say anything bad about the drive itself, Toshiba's support site is a complete farce. Although they have a category for storage products, all avenues to support demand that you provide the model or serial number of your product.

In the case of this drive, Toshiba's site claims that both are invalid!

This would have greatly complicated migrating from my old drive to this one were it for the fact that I'd done so in the past and had software already installed on the computer for that task! (There are also plenty of free and low-cost options.)

Other Thoughts: The bad reviews of this Toshiba 500GB hard drive made me very nervous. For me, this drive has worked out perfectly well.

I test all my hard drives aggressively before putting them into service using GRC's SpinRite testing tool, and this drive took the longest of any hard drive I can remember to get through the maximum testing level. I don't know why--it didn't reallocate any sectors during the test, and it's quite fast in normal use.

5 out of 5 eggsNOT DOA!

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA050 500GB 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Bought this drive because of price with promo code. Only paid $40.49 after promo.

Cons: None to speak of!

Other Thoughts: Can't understand why so many people are having problems with this hard drive, or any other hard drive. I tend to stick with WD or Seagate, but could not pass this drive up because of the price.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA050 500GB 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: 32 MB cache, Sata 6Gb/s, cheap

Cons: Have to format before use, not much effort though

Other Thoughts: Guys, you have to format the drive before you can use it. to make sure a HDD is DOA, try turning on the comp. and feel it to see if its spinning.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA050 500GB 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: none

Cons: first drive was opened and used, but I was charged for new.

Second was sealed, but is having issues out of the box on three different computers.

Other Thoughts: Got these two in a bundle deal. One was sealed, but had issues when installed. The second was opened and used, but seems to work.

Not sure I trust the working one as it was returned for a reason and I expect it to fail at any second. It is now a backup drive.

This thing sure has a lot of bad reviews.
