5 out of 5 eggsSurprised

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

Pros: Price, capacity, reliability.

Cons: Does not make me toast.

Other Thoughts: This is the second one I have bought and put them in RAID 0. Tested then for 48 hours straight with no read/write errors. I must say, for the amount of 3TB drives out there that are failing these are surprisingly fast and reliable. If you are looking for one in this range and capacity go for it you won't be sorry

4 out of 5 eggsSuperior drive at a steal of a price.

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

Pros: Great size/price ratio

Cons: None noticeable.

Other Thoughts: You can buy faster drives but save your money. Place these drives as your secondary storage and spend the extra money on an extra fast SSD for your primary drive.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked for me

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

Pros: 3TB hard drive. It works. Not much else to say about it.

Cons: None thus far

Other Thoughts: This was the cheapest 3TB 7200 RPM hard drive I could find. It works. I am pleased with it. Would recommend to others looking for a functional drive.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks 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: Quiet. Great price per gig. Performs well. Good Smart readings

Cons: Haven't owned it long enough to know if long term failure is an issue.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace my 2TB Seagate that died without warning in my desktop. I was looking for a different brand than Seagate since I had an external 3TB drive do the same a few months back. According to the Backblaze article, Toshibas were rated well for low failure rates; so I'm taking the chance.

4 out of 5 eggsSeems to work fine, quiet smooth operation

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

Pros: good price point and value per TB

Cons: absolutely ZERO support on the Toshiba website for drives and seemingly no drive utilities to confirm drive is working

Other Thoughts: We shall see how long it lasts based on what people have said on here, I've only had it a couple of days. Also, the first time I hooked it up in an existing SATA enclosure I had, the drive was not able to be initialized and only identified as 768MB but it was the SATA card not the drive in the end. I hooked it up to a straight USB SATA adapter I was able to initialize and clone on it to the full 3TB size. Unfortunately the old enclosure is apparently useless for anything over 2TB maybe.

1 out of 5 eggsTwo of these drives arrived DOA

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

Pros: Newegg VERY responsive in returning BOTH drives I purchased.

Cons: I purchased TWO of these drives in the past month. I initially purchased one drive, it was DOA with an audible clicking sound when I powered on the PC it was installed into. BIOS didn't recognize the drive either. Newegg VERY quickly sent me a return UPS label and I returned the drive for a replacement. The replacement drive exhibited the same behavior. This time I requested a refund.

I've used these Toshiba drives in the past with a great deal of success so I'm surprised I had this issue TWICE in a row. maybe this is a bad batch of HDDs.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't purchase another of these drives. At least not for awhile until Toshiba addresses their QC issues.

3 out of 5 eggsFirst of 13 Toshiba 3TB's to fail on me

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

Pros: Price per GB is good
Quiet
Runs cool
Excellent packaging in retail box

Cons: Died after only 6 months.

Other Thoughts: Booted machine that it was installed in, and it reported a SMART failure on the hard drive, stopping the boot. Pulled the hard drive and put it into another machine for testing. Ran SMART test, and it came back clean. Put back into original machine, powered up and ran fine for about 30 minutes while reading/writing data. Suddenly started a rapid click of death sound. So fast that I thought it was the power supply fan going, until I listened to it more closely. Back into the test machine it went, and started clicking as soon as it was powered up. Failed drive was manufactured in April 2015. If memory serves me correctly, several other reviewers also had problems with drives manufactured during that month.

2 out of 5 eggsNoisy

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

Pros: Drive works as expected
Package was packed good and solid
Good price for what I needed

Cons: Very noisy. My system runs whisper quiet but after installing this drive it makes a whining sound constantly. I have installed and reinstalled it 3 times to try and stop the noise. I usually buy Seagate or WD this is my first Toshiba and my first disappointment of something I bought on Newegg.
