1 out of 5 eggsBuyer Beware

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA100 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Worked when I received it.

Cons: Began to fail after only 4 to 6 months, then failed completely. Only my second hard drive failure in over 10 years.

Other Thoughts: I contacted Toshiba support's website regarding warranty coverage. The model number and serial number were not recognized by the support website. I then called Toshiba's customer help number and the representative also could not find the model number or serial number. I contacted Square Trade for warranty coverage and they told me they could find the model number on Google, so therefore I must have manufacturer's coverage and to call Toshiba again. Please do yourself a favor and look at other manufacturers other than Toshiba for a hard drive. Also, Square Trade is not the great warranty company they claim to be. Save your money.

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA100 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Price, well packed, fast delivery (twice).
Newegg RMA worked very well (twice).

Cons: DOA, twice, click-of-death.

Other Thoughts: Hard to believe 2 of 2 = DOA, should have payed attention to reviews, sigh. Been a fan of Toshiba, no longer. Reviews suggest that all spinner-disks are not being tested well, no other excuse fits. Newegg RMA process = excellent, thanks.

1 out of 5 eggsNever go Toshiba

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA100 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: It didn't kill anyone...

Cons: I have owned many toshiba, WD, Quantum, Maxtor, and Seagate drives and let me tell you my Toshiba drive was the only one for the sata connector to randomly fall off making my drive useless. Too bad I had family pictures on it, important work information, and documents I needed to get to. Oh I was only 2 months over the warranty and they refused to give me the part to fix it.

Other Thoughts: Never go with Toshiba go with WD, Seagate, or anything else.

5 out of 5 eggsFast, quiet, cool, not cheap

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA100 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Fast, quiet, cool, or cheap. Pick any three. OH, and add a two year warranty on top of that.

Quality comes at an affordable premium. These drives are also very light and durable. No real vibration or heat problems to speak of.

Very low power consumption and low heat considering these are 7200 RPM drives.

Cons: At these prices I would have expected a larger cache.

Other Thoughts: Allegedly, these cool-running 7200 RPM drives are from Hitachi and IBM heritage. Toshiba's product marketing appears to be positioning these drives for lower-powered nearline SATA storage which is unusual because these are 7200 RPM drives.

5 out of 5 eggsworks fine in HTPC

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA100 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: This hdd came installed in a refurbished pc I bought on newegg. I have used it as a HTPC recording cable tv with a networked tuner. I have filled the hdd and had no problems with the hdd at all.

Side note, when I recently added a 3TB hdd I discovered the pc manufacturer (Asus) has this drive hooked up to a sata 2 port instead sata 3, yet the dvd drive was hooked up to sata 3. Shame on you Asus.

Cons: None

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA100 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: In reference to my earlier 'one failure' post, I received a brand new replacement drive from Toshiba today (mfr date 01/2014). No questions, no notes, no muss, no fuss.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsNewegg's new drive cocoon

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA100 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: I love the new cocoon Newegg are using to ship hard drives! They should adequately protect the drive during transit. And they're far and away better than anything Newegg have used in the past. They should also take a lot less time to use, helping Newegg hold down cost increases.

Given that modern drives can withstand at least a 1 foot drop onto a hard table, the cocoon, stiff as it is, should protect the drive even if it slips off a fast conveyor belt and slams into a support post at 20 MPH (roughly the same as a one second free-fall).

Cons: None.

4 out of 5 eggsOne failure

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA100 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Still a fast drive. And I'll still buy them (in fact, I just bought two more; see below). The one in my desktop (drive built 11/2012) is still going strong with no errors. If a drive doesn't fail in the first few weeks, it probably won't fail for years. (Floods that cause shortages and marginal drives to be shipped to customers are an exception).

The trick with hard drives is to run smartctl periodically and watch for errors. If the errors are localized to a certain part of the disk, you can often partition around that area, though it can be time consuming to find the extent of the bad area. In one case (for my firewall), I limited use to the first 16GiB of a failing 100GB notebook drive; it's been running over a year now.

Cons: None to note

Other Thoughts: Re: my previous review of 2014/1/28

The drive in the video surveillance system (drive built 11/2012) just failed with lots of reallocated sectors and very slow access. I've opened an RMA for it.

I just bought two more (built 11/2013) to replace the two Hitachi 7K1000.B drives (built 5/2009) I bought 4½ years ago for my desktop. These drives had been powered on and off daily since installation. One still shows no errors. The other has errors in the first 100MiB; the rest of the drive is still quite usable; in fact, I repartitioned it to not use the first 100MiB some months ago and it'd been fine since. But Newegg had a nice price on the Toshibas, so I bought a couple. The Hitachis will still serve as hot-plug backup drives.
