5 out of 5 eggsRe: One Failure

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.

1 out of 5 eggsCheap and DOA, and dissappointed

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

Pros: Newegg apparently updated its packaging. Drive encased in a full bubble wrap cocoon; no room to move...snug fit. Congrats!

Cons: None, right out of the box I could not install Windows XP as part of a dual boot system with Win 7.

Attempted several installs then finally "NTLDR". Tried several repair programs to no avail. Req RMA.

Other Thoughts: Dissappointed with Toshiba. I have a couple of 2tb hard drives in other computers still working for almost a year purchased from other vendors.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed in just over a year

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

Pros: None

Cons: I'm very disappointed in this drive as it has seen relatively minimal use and yet after just over a year it is failing. Even Windows recognizes that the hard disk is failing, which just goes to show how badly it's crashing. You can hear the headers mounting and unmounting constantly and it sounds ghastly. I definitely wouldn't recommend this drive, even as a secondary drive.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

5 out of 5 eggsCheap and quiet

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

Pros: Never hear it (though my power supply is really noisy). Hitting 140 MB/s Read speed. Scored really well (especially for the price) on Tom's Hardware.

Cons: None so far. About a month and a half of use as my secondary drive to a small SSD drive. Has most of the programs installed to it.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed After 3 mos. Bad Cust. Svc.

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

Pros: None

Cons: This HDD failed after approximately three months of operation. Toshiba offered to replace the HDD, but only if I pay to ship the broken HDD to them (shipping is about $10.00). Also, the means to file an RMA with Toshiba was challenging, and I was only able to obtain a number for their internal HDD support after e-mailing the company.

Other Thoughts: Toshiba does not make this HDD. It is made by Hitachi, or at least mine was.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good so far!

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

Pros: Great price, fast enough for backup

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I'm using the disk for image backup--drive is normally turned off, so can't really say anything about ultimate reliability. It works great for my application of saving disk images as a CryptoLocker defense.
