1 out of 5 eggsMy ver first order @ newegg

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: nothing

Cons: I bought my very first hard disk and I got a lemon. The disk wont be recognized at all. Tried all different techniques i could. In 3 minutes it gets hot like a baked potato and almost burnt myself. I do not know how to express my feelings here.

5 out of 5 eggsI own five, all bought at different times, all still working great!

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: I own a computer shop, I build servers, and I troubleshoot computer equipment all day long. I even write the computer diagnostic and troubleshooting software we use in-house. Despite the plethora of negative reviews and the current 3-egg rating, these drives are generally a solid purchase. They can do streaming reads up to 189 MB/sec and they're awesome for building huge fast RAID arrays while saving money. I have automatic SMART and RAID integrity checks as well as multiple external enclosures built with the exact same 3TB drives and everything has been fine since day one.

Cons: One drive out of the five I currently use plus the four I deployed in a server tested bad within an hour of the first spin-up in the store, but Newegg replaced it quickly and the replacement has had no issues whatsoever. Something like 10% of hard drives fail within the first year of operation so it's not a surprise that people get DOA units occasionally. Sometimes the factory ships a bad batch. It happens. If you RMA anything with Toshiba, register the serial number on toshiba.com first for a painless RMA.

Other Thoughts: The naysayers are wrong. This drive is still an excellent purchase and is the best value today in a 3TB 7200RPM by far, and it beats all drives smaller and larger in the price per gigabyte. The only medium with a better cost per gigabyte is 25GB BD-R discs. You can't go wrong with these drives, at least not any more wrong than you can go with ANY hard drive purchase. If you're backing up like you ought to be anyway, being the unlucky one who gets a dud won't matter because you lost nothing and you can get it replaced.

2 out of 5 eggs1 Good, 1 Dead after a week

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Came in retail packaging, 7200RPM, low noise and low heat for the spindle speed.

Cons: I ordered two drives. There was a loud clicking on one right from first power-on. Interestingly, it seemed to work fine for 1 week, and I had no issues until the BIOS refused to recognise it.

I initially thought that the clicking was from a fan, but after the drive lost connection I re-checked and it was definitely the drive head clicking. I'm surprised it worked for that week.

Other Thoughts: The DOA definitely isn't due to NewEgg - the shipping job was top-notch and there was additional foam packing around the retail boxes.

The speeds on these drives is surprisingly low - I noticed no difference in performance from other 5200 RPM "flex speed" drives.

1 out of 5 eggsFailure after a month

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Size, price

Cons: The drive had 113 relocated sectors after a month and failed. The return policy was void on Neweggs part and Toshiba charges you to RMA a product...

Other Thoughts: Avoid at all cost, which is plenty

4 out of 5 eggspleased so far

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: have 4 running in netgear readynas 104 using x-raid and each drive (after initial 2 installed) recognized and added to array with no issues.
read and write speeds pretty good for a (basically) raid5 setup and no issues so far.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: so far no regrets

5 out of 5 eggsIt stores stuff and serves it up quickly

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Good and cheap. You can find them every now and then for just a little over $80. That makes it $0.37/GB. Good I/O and they are quiet & cool.

Cons: None, I haven't had any issues, yet.

Other Thoughts: Been using them for 8 months & 4 months respectively in my FlexRAID setup. 1 is used as the parity and the other is just data storage. They work just fine in this setup.
