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

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.

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.
