4 out of 5 eggsAfter a year, still goin strong

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 3 (6.0 Gb/S) 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Big data, for little buck. At the time I bought this hard drive there was a sale on it as well, so I got it for a great deal. I am very pleased with the purchase. I boot the computer off a Samsung SSD, and this I use for my storage and program drive. It's great not having to think or worry about running out of space, and this thing is nice and quick. I also sleep the drive when it isn't being used, so it takes a second to start when I need it, tends to start fast enough for my purposes.

Cons: I was hearing a low *thump thump*, from the drive for about the first 6 months, after looking it up, people around the forums said this is a fairly common problem with HDDs and shouldn't be an issue. It hasn't been a problem, and actually the sound has since ceased.

Other Thoughts: Thanks, Toshiba, for a nice drive. Here's hoping it lasts a long time!

1 out of 5 eggsAnother dead drive

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 3 (6.0 Gb/S) 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Seemed like a great deal at the time....

Cons: It's dead as a door nail now. Lost 1.7 TB of data including the backup data I had from the drive it was replacing. Hard drives these days are horrible. The bigger sizes are worthless especially if they have a higher failure rate. This barely lasted a year! In fact it sat on my desk for a few months until I had a system to install it in. SO maybe 6 months of use. Horrible!

Other Thoughts: I ran chkdsk on the drive, scanned with malware and antivirus, changed the SATA port, the drive is just physically bad. Very disappointed. I've lost photos, home videos, 16 years of emails, and tons of documents.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat...IF you buy the retail version

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 3 (6.0 Gb/S) 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Reasonably priced, good quality

Cons: Sensitive to damage due to poor packaging

Other Thoughts: I've purchased dozens of these hard drives to use in our central backup system here at work, and have experienced ZERO problems with them. I like them so much that I use them at home as well.

However, they seem sensitive to damage due to poor packaging during shipping. Since NewEgg has always had problems packing bulk HDs for shipping, I would not buy *this* version of the drive from NewEgg.

This same exact drive is sold by Toshiba in very nice protective retail packaging as the PH3300U-1I72, and is sold here at NewEgg for only $10 more. That extra $10 buys you an extra year's warranty as well, so it's money well spent.

1 out of 5 eggsSadly DOA :(

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 3 (6.0 Gb/S) 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Cheap price for a 3TB drive.

Cons: Came to me DOA so now I get to wait while I go through the RMA process, Sadly I will end up probably waiting 2+ weeks before I can use my new rig because of this. If I get it back and it performs great I may give it a 2-3 eggs but no more than that for the inconvenience of a bad drive.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Fine

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 3 (6.0 Gb/S) 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Its 3 TB of space so far its ran good not any problems with the drive not the fastest of the bunch but I knew this before buying it , Almost all of the bigger drives seem to run slower.

Cons: Windows 8 and 8.1 wont have any problem with the drive showing the 3 TB of space.. In windows 7 use disk manager and delete the entire drive and format it as GPT drive then it will see the entire drive or try to find the software on Toshibas site.

Other Thoughts: Well other thoughts it took all of 10 days from time of order to being able to use the drive, shipping was so slow I thought I could of went to a Brick and Mortor store using a horse and buggy would of been faster getting this drive.

5 out of 5 eggssolid drive; great price

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 3 (6.0 Gb/S) 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Solid operation. Good access speed. Excellent price per gig. Never any problems with any of them.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Own 3. Just bought a 4th. Two are RAIDed in one computer. The third is an external back-up drive. Fourth will mirror the third.

1 out of 5 eggsFollow up (bought two, I'm entitled!)

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 3 (6.0 Gb/S) 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Still cheap, but both rotten eggs.

Cons: Seems i owe my Gigabyte mobo an apology. Sorry, mobo--but Gigabyte's online tech support is still a joke. Turns out it was the Toshiba HD's all along--both as dead as door nails. What are the odds on that? Two drives ordered at separate times, one from sunny So. Cal. and the other from--the East Coast! And both as dead as door nails. Seems someone has a quality control problem. Who, exactly, is anyone's guess--wink, wink.

Other Thoughts: Thank goodness, i signed up for the newegg's Premiere Customer Program! Everyone should give it a try. It's saved me a small fortune in a very short time. That and my sanity. Thanks, newegg!

1 out of 5 eggsMy Holiday Disaster

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 3 (6.0 Gb/S) 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Cheap--thanks to Newegg's Pre-Black Friday promo and sale!

Cons: Cheap. Well, not really, but down to three eggs from the 4 it had when i bought it and dropping fast. Having the exact same problem as reviewer Peter G. had way back in 12/29/2013. 2013! Haven't they come up with a fix? HDD simply not recognized by my Gigabyte mobo's (970A-D3P ver.1.0) BIOS. So if you have or are purchasing this mobo (don't!), avoid this HDD like the plague. Gigabyte tech services are a joke--have been "working" on this problem for 4 days with no success. Toshiba's... Still waiting to hear from them. Online support for this product is effectively nil--no driver updates, no disc wizards to cure your ills, nada--an orphaned product.

Other Thoughts: Should have done my homework, I guess?
