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

Pros: 3TB is a holly cow amount of storage. 3000 Gigs is really 2.72 TB after install on a Windows o/s. Not an over-sized case; universal size. Quiet.

Cons: Not for the plug-n-pray world. You will need to format the drive to mount it. H/D comes with no software.

Other Thoughts: If you can, tie this into an existing computer and format the drive in the O/S. Then you can put it into a new system, and the MoBo will mount the drive in BIOS; tech hack for a new build.

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

Pros: Great price

Cons: Bare drive only - no cables

Other Thoughts: Packaging from Newegg on these drives was awesome. There is no way they could have been damaged in shipment. Each drive was placed into an air-cushioned wrap and then into a small box. These were then placed into a larger box that was well padded. No errors or bad drives on installation and they seem to be working well in my FreeNAS system.

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

Pros: Was expecting a HDD with some decent specs for a great price, instead I got a overpriced paper weight. Arrived dead.

Cons: didn't work.

Other Thoughts: save your packaging material, otherwise you will have to return it to Toshiba.

2 out of 5 eggsBad blocks out of the box

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

Pros: Cheap, large capacity, quiet, SATA III

Cons: Bad blocks present when scanned, no Toshiba testing/config utility

Other Thoughts: I picked up 2 of these for a song during a flash sale. As they are replacements for my current 2x2TB RAID1 setup in my NAS, I want them to be totally reliable. After coming up empty on Toshiba's website, I called support trying to find a disk testing utility made by the manufacturer like WD, HGST, Fujitsu, and others have. After being told they don't have one, I used Drive Genius on my mac to run a surface scan of both drives. Sadly, bad blocks started to appear almost immediately during the first scan. I let the scan run to completion (6 hours) and a total of 5 bad blocks were found. I use my NAS for backups, so I am sending back that drive. The second one scanned and no bad blocks were found, so I will be keeping it.

2.5 eggs for now. I will update this review once I receive the replacement drive and test it.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat When Working

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 fast, with 7200 RPM. Starts up quick, reads and writes quick. Fairly quiet. Easy installation on widows 8.1. And LARGE capacity for price. 3 year manufacturer warranty... thank goodness.

Cons: I have gone through 2 of these drives. The 1st one started making a *thump thump* noise a month in to having it. I decided to ignore the sound. Bad idea. The drive crashed a year in. Complete failure, meant I couldn't get ANY data back without paying $700, even then nothing was for certain. Big disappointment. Sent it back in to claim warranty, they sent me another one very quickly. Worked fine until a month in and the familiar *thump thump* noise returned. Not ignoring it this time. Sending it in for voucher to order a different drive. The low price has not been worth the effort.

Other Thoughts: I really wanted to enjoy this drive because of it's great performance, but having two drives go bad, I'm not willing to risk it on this model any longer. Toshiba also has no option to cover shipping costs unless it need replacing within the first 14 days of ownership, but both times the thumping came after a month. They "couldn't help" at all. Now I will have paid about $25 extra for shipping on a drive that has never worked correctly. Disappointed in drive health, but VERY disappointed with Toshiba.

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

Pros: nothing

Cons: I bought my very first hard disk and I got a lemon. The disk wont be recognized at all. Tried all different techniques i could. In 3 minutes it gets hot like a baked potato and almost burnt myself. I do not know how to express my feelings here.
