1 out of 5 eggsKept Defauting to RAW format

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

Pros: Good while it worked

Cons: I bought two of these drives that worked great for a year. Then all of a sudden they started defaulting to RAW file format. With use of testdisk, I was able to get my files back and formatted back right. Then it would go back to RAW format a month or so later. Not worth the hassle and the risk of losing data. Will not buy Tobisha again.

Other Thoughts: I would possibly say these were OK as a secondary back up but not a primary back up.

4 out of 5 eggs1 out of 4 was defective out of box

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

Pros: The price. There was a promo code that reduced my cost even more and the code was valid for all 4 drives I ordered.

I expect the speed and reliability to be fine after I get a complete set of good drives.

Cons: Like the title says. One drive of four was defective. Ran some s.m.a.r.t test and it came back with bad sectors, then had sectors waiting to be relocated.

I'm not picking on the manufacturer. These 4 drives are to replace some 3+ year old drives in an array. When they were new one of those was defective also and that was a different manufacturer. After it was sorted out they ran fine 24-7. ( now one has a few errors so I am replacing the array)

Other Thoughts: The return process didnt allow me to print my return label immediately. It was sent via email. By that time I had already called newegg and they didnt tell me it was coming. they just voided that rma and created another one. then I had 2 sets of labels and had to be sure to use the valid rma.

5 out of 5 eggsMuch needed space maker.

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

Pros: Price! Easy to install! No DOA for me, 1 and done. Love it!

Cons: I'm not technical enough to test data swap speeds, nor do I care enough if it's not running abnormally slow, which this one is not.

Other Thoughts: I have never added or swapped a hard drive before, and was a little worried beforehand not knowing what to expect, but it all went very easy. I could have used another SATA data cable, but I just used the CD/Blu-ray drive (that I haven't spun up once in a couple years since everything can be downloaded, these days) data cable. A quick google search on allocating partitions of a new hard drive had me up and running a few minutes later and transferring 500 Gb of my Steam game files off of my old, stuffed 1 Tb drive. All is well now, and the encroaching loss of storage space is put off for a few more years lol

2 out of 5 eggs50% success rate

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

Pros: Cheap. 3TB at 6.0mbps.

Hooked up two of these in a mirror on a proper RAID card.

Cons: potentially high failure rate. One drive failed after 6 months.

Thank goodness I had my data mirrored. I can't trust the existing drive, but at least I'm not totally dead.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate to prior review

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

Pros: OK, after having 8 of these Toshiba drives in a RAID5 array, using an HPT 2720SGL card, I have had 4 crashes and array rebuilds during the last year. I had thought the drives were bad/going bad, but I finally figured out that the controller does not give them enough time to spin up from sleep when the computer running Win7 64-bit pro wakes up. So the controller usually flags drive 1 or drive 4 as "failed" and then wants to rebuild the array. AFAIK there is no way to program the controller to take more time during spin up. So instead of having Win7 turn off the hard drives, I just let them keep spinning. Cheaper than buying a better controller card!

Cons: None, seriously. I just ran the SMART diagnostic and all drives have the same # of reallocated sectors as when brand-new.

Other Thoughts: If I had some, I'd sell 'em for 1 cent apiece..

2 out of 5 eggsHigh initial failure rate

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

Pros: Cheap, runs ok once you get a good one

Cons: I ordered 4 of these drives for a home server to run in a RAID configuration. 3 of the 4 original drives I bought failed within hours and 1 of the replaced drives also failed. This was extremely aggravating but once I finally had good drives, they have been running for 6 months without any further problems.

Other Thoughts: I would not mess with these unless you have the time to fool with a lot of RMAs

2 out of 5 eggsToshiba Hard Drive

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

Pros: The price was good but now I see why!

Cons: Had the drive since 10/13/2013 and now all I get from it is clicks.
Not a long time for a drive to last.
Should have listen to the reviews.
Would not buy another drive from Toshiba.
I have had WD and Seagate drives for years. No problems

5 out of 5 eggsRock-solid and super fast; take the bad reviews with a grain of salt

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

Pros: This drive is a big win on every major factor that matters in a hard drive: tons of storage, ample performance, and has yet to show any signs of failure despite being many months old and being violently banged around in an external enclosure sitting in a padded backpack. I use this drive to back up the entire 3TB RAID array in the main server and "impressive" is an understatement. Streaming read speeds show a maximum real-world transfer rate of 174 MB/sec.

Cons: The drive exceeds the 2TB barrier and using MBR-style partitioning will only see 2TB of capacity. Most bad reviews are complaints about the capacity showing less than 3TB and that's a VERY unfair reason for a lower rating. Anyone researching 3TB or larger drives will quickly learn that you MUST USE a GPT partition table (Windows XP is not supported!) to see the full drive capacity.

Other Thoughts: GET ONE. You can't go wrong with SATA-III, 7200 RPM, 3TB of space, and great real-world speed. If you worry about the DOA and failure reviews, remember that 10% of ALL new hard drives fail within a year. Also, if you must RMA with Toshiba, register the serial number on their site first and you'll get an RMA ten times quicker. I just bought a second one and will continue to buy them until they're discontinued.
