5 out of 5 eggsGood buy

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

Pros: I bought it on promotion. The price was good. The product is work as expected. And, I am confident with TOSHIBA's reputation. They are always my top choice on hard drive.

Cons: Don't see the cons

5 out of 5 eggsStill running strong

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

Pros: Very fast compared to my older 500GB-2TB drives. Has not failed after many months of use. SMART indicators are good all around. I use this drive in and recommend the StarTech SAT3510BU3 USB 3.0 + SATA-III enclosure; while a somewhat pricey combination, it's beyond worth it for the full SATA-III speed, >2TB support, and working USB SAT for use with SMART and hdparm.

Cons: None so far. GPT, proper partition alignment, and proper OS support are mandatory for full capacity and performance; some bad reviews may be due to failure to pay attention to these restrictions.

Other Thoughts: While there are enough bad reviews to drive ratings down to 3 eggs as of now, some of them are due to ignorance of how the >2TB drive ecosystem works. This is a solid drive and worth the money. If you do need to RMA the drive (or anything else) with Toshiba, here's a hint: register the product on their website first, THEN call in the RMA. Far less questions will be asked of you.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

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

Pros: None.

Cons: Unfortunately I did not have the chance to check this drive prior to the 30 day return policy. The drive is DOA. I was hoping to be able to contact Toshiba support via email, as I work during normal business hours and don't have much chance to contact companies via phone, but there is NO email support listed on their site for support for internal hard drives. Waste of money. Now I know what company to never give money to again.

5 out of 5 eggsRunning well

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

Pros: Worked right out of the box, and continues to work well after 8 months. I used to use only WD or Seagate drives until I read several reviews showing superior reliability of the Hitachi and Toshiba hard drives.

I've been using exclusively Hitachi and Toshiba drives in all of my builds for the last three years and have had zero Hitachi or Toshiba hard drive failures in that time frame.

This is a very quiet drive (as most newer drives are), runs cooler than some of my other drives.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: 3tB of drive space sure helped my security computer storage problem. I installed 3 of these to store the video images, and it is wonderful to be able to look back months at the 11 surveillance cameras at my business.

1 out of 5 eggsToshiba 3 T/b harddrive

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

Pros: low price and got shipment very quickly.

Cons: ordered 4 of these large hard drives. 1 of 4 was dead. Got the dead hard drive replaced. 11 months later 2 more hard drives crashed in my network server. Went in circles with Toshiba website and support. I gave up trying to get other other 2 replaced. It is not worth my time. will not buy again.

Other Thoughts: With in the next 6 months I will replace the other 2 Toshiba hard drives. They are installed in a network server and I need them to run. I don't trust them anymore and had problems with 2 at the same time. At least I did not lose any data.

1 out of 5 eggstrash

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

Pros: cheap, free shipping, large capacity.

Cons: I did not use it right away. I had it on storage for three weeks. I tried to use it after three weeks of receiving it, but to my surprise it tick and tick and tick and made my pc unbootable.
I tried returning to newegg, but it seemed it was too late. I have tried RMA tru Toshiba website, but my product is not recognized which means what? no warranty because this product is not to be sold in the USA? I have had RMA western digital hardrives no problems. Why is it a problems to RMA this drive?

Other Thoughts: check for warranty. I have to dump my toshiba drive in the trash

1 out of 5 eggsBuyer Beware

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

Pros: Price

Cons: Wow. Wow. I came here for the low price point on such a large hard drive. Now I know that what I was getting for the low price is a high failure rate product. If it isn't DOA it's going to die.

Toshiba obviously isn't acknowledging their product is flawed by design and manufacture, a respectable company would have taken the loss and pulled the product off the market. Rather, they're peddling them bottom dollar to unsuspecting people.

You know, it's one thing when you sell junk RAM or something- but a HARD DRIVE HAS TO BE A PRODUCT YOU CAN TRUST. DATA IS IRREPLACEABLE. That's the part that sickens me. Data is the product of work, sometimes hard and priceless work, sometimes captured memories such as photos. One would imagine a 3TB hard drive like this would be somebodies main backup, because really-- who here bought two 3TB drives to have one unreliable drive back up another.

Now, TOSHIBA IS JUST GOING TO COPY+PASTE THE SAME PARAGRAPH ON MY REVIEW AS ALL THE REST and take absolutely no action to remedy the situation. Toshiba: Listen, your customers don't feel loved and listened to if you paste the same corporate response paragraph every time. Pull this flawed product off the market.
