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?

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

Pros: Cheap.
You can disassemble it and use as a souvenir.

Cons: Does not work.

Other Thoughts: I bought it more than a year ago. Recently made a decision to use it. Installed, booted my server up. Happy clicking and loud spinning greeted me. While Toshiba harddrive was happy to see me, it completely refused to be recognized by my server and do any work.

Bad product (39% 1 star reviews). Wasted money (have no idea how to get a warranty replacement). Want to use offensive language.

3 out of 5 eggsToshiba support is nonexistent

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

Pros: Well, the good news is this drive is still working, although I'm bracing for the crash.

Cons: The bad news is every once in a while this hard drive will give off a high pitched squeal. It's been like that since the day I got it. Toshiba support is virtually nonexistent online. Their forms are broken, nobody there has any desire to fix them and I couldn't get a reply in their forum.

Other Thoughts: Just don't buy this drive. I bought it thinking it was a rebranded Hitachi, and I'm sure at some point they were, based on the other reviews, but they aren't any longer, and the support is just terrible. Everyone looks for a deal but time is money. You will lose time and by extension you will lose money.

5 out of 5 eggsNo Issues

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

Pros: - Low price for a 7200RPM 3TB drive.
- Works great in RAID.
- It just stays on constantly, no weird idle functions.

Cons: - None so far.

Other Thoughts: Ordered 5 of these over the past year. First one was more of a test run after reading a lot of the bad reviews. After almost a year of flawless operation as a primary drive I ordered 4 more to run in RAID 5 in my VANTEC NexStar HX4R. So far i've offloaded 2TB onto the array and watch movies from it daily. It's comforting to not hear any weird sounds or any breaks in the consistent vibration indicating the drives are just spinning at 7200RPM and nothing else. They also run pretty cool for the confined space they are in.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA, junk, STAY AWAY

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

Pros: none

Cons: DOA. ordered two of these. making clicking noise and not recognized by computer. right out of the packaging two drives do not work and are faulty.

Other Thoughts: stay away. buyer beware. Two new Toshiba hard drives, supposedly a quality brand were junk right out of the package.

i used to trust toshiba without even second guessing their quality.after this i will choose western digital or hitachi before toshiba.
i guess toshiba had a 'sale' for a reason.
i rma's both of these drives and i hope the second set actually work or i will never buy another toshiba hard drive again. unbelievable.
DO NOT trust this drive. maybe its a one off but after seeing the other reviews about toshiba hard drives im thinking toshiba quality is about as good as seagate drives....which suck nowadays.
