1 out of 5 eggsWorst experience so far

Pros: The drive is fast and cheap. The SATA 6Gbps and 7200 rpm work as advertised.

Cons: Their support. I bought 2 of these for a storage RAID and one failed after 10 months. It happens. It's under a 3 year warranty. I'll just RMA it. No big deal. I go to file for a return and they will NOT accept the claim unless I pony up $108.00 more for them to hold while they test the drive. Not to mention I will need to pay for the shipping costs. I ask the support specialist "What if I don't have an extra hundred dollars for you to hold?" She replied with "We cannot accept your return without it". This is absolutely appalling. Also their website has next to zero online support for troubleshooting these drives.

Other Thoughts: I will NEVER buy anything made by Toshiba again.

5 out of 5 eggsit's working

Pros: good deal, enough space, 3 year warranty (see other thoughts).

Cons: no sata cable or mounting screws. strange, for a retail package.
gets warm, but not more so than other hdds.

Other Thoughts: it came uninitialized. no biggie. i had western digital's data lifeguard run the long test, which it passed, then write zeroes. no issues.
partitioned with gparted, formatted, and i was up and running.
regarding the warranty, the paper sheet that came in the box says it "commences on the date of purchase and expires three (3) years after the date of purchase" (to the original owner, when purchased as new, within the country of original purchase). so _not_ 3 years from the date of manufacture.
i would have liked a 5 year warranty, but not for 40% more dollars...
as others have said, this is a dt01aca200.

3 out of 5 eggsgood enough

Pros: No problems with the drives that didn't fail.

Cons: I bought 4 of these about 18 months ago, and 1 of them failed after a year of normal use. They were in a 4x2TB RAID-Z2 array, so nothing was lost. I started getting the occasional read error, and SMART showed that the drive was pretty much out of room to reallocate bad sectors.

I'm not quite sure if these drives actually support ATA secure erase. I ran a secure erase that seemed to only take 20s or so, which doesn't seem right, unless the drive hardware encrypts the drive and it just changes the key (Seagate Enterprise drives do this, but not in 20s.) My guess is that the drive just pretends to have erased the data.

1 out of 5 eggsThing Died in 1 year with minimal use

Pros: There really are no pros except that it worked the 30 or so times it was used until it didn't.

Cons: Died in 1 year with very little use as a backup hard drive. I'm absolutely sad with Toshiba and will never purchase from them again.

5 out of 5 eggsFollow-up review from 5/13/2013

Pros: Been running 24 hours a day for over a year.

Cons: Toshiba STILL has not fixed their online warranty page. I installed a 3TB Toshiba drive in April and get the same "Invalid serial number" when I try to check for its warranty expiration date.

As I mentioned in my first review, the web checker wants a 12-digit serial number (with no spaces). However, neither this 2TB drive nor my new 3TB drive passes their serial number test.

Frankly, I don't know why Toshiba bothers having a web support page if it's not going to function correctly. But, apparently they're happy to have us take up the time of their support people.

Other Thoughts: This is just a short follow-up on my review of 5/13/2013.

The drive has been running 24 hours a day for over a year now on my Linux file server. No problems.

2 out of 5 eggsDidn't make it's 1st Birthday

Pros: Toshiba Warranty Support is straightforward and easy. Just go to the their website:
http://support.toshiba.com/
Fill out the form. They ship you a new drive and request a credit card in case you don't return the drive.

Cons: Drive worked great for about 8 months. This past week drive started making noises and now Windows is reporting the disk is damaged.
You are responsible for shipping charges to return drive to Toshiba. Savings just went to UPS.

Other Thoughts: Not sure I would purchase another drive from Toshiba. My experience with WD is much better. I guess you get what you pay for.
