4 out of 5 eggsNot the full 3 TB, but still a decent price

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

Pros: - Cheap for what you're getting
- Cheap warranties available
- Not actually that loud (if you have more than a couple fans in your system the noise will be almost undetectable compared to those)
- Decent speed for a hard drive (still doesn't compare to an SSD obviously, but there are many slower hard drives out there)

Cons: - It's not a true 3 TB, rather it's 3 trillion bytes, so you are getting something closer to 2.72 TB.

Other Thoughts: - Haven't owned it long enough to say anything about longevity. Will update review if anything odd occurs.
- Make sure you set it to GPT partition before installing your OS, otherwise it will likely only show as a 2TB drive.

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.
