The Toshiba MG03ACA/MG03SCA series HDDs are designed to support enterprise applications where reliability, high capacity, and performance are required. The series is ideally suited for data archives and digital records storage, entry and business critical server and storage systems, disk backup systems-including remote sites for data protection and business continuity, and tiered virtual infrastructure for public and private cloud deployments (IaaS and PaaS).
Amazing value if you know what you're buying
This review is from: Toshiba MG03ACA MG03ACA100 1 TB 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
Pros: I ordered 5 for a RAID5 config with the 3ware 9750-8i.
Cons: They don't come with a manual, but if you know what you're buying, you probably don't need one.
Other Thoughts: Very cheap for what you are getting. You can't tell unless you are looking at the manufacturer's website, but this drive is not in the same class as drives like the Seagate Barracuda or WD Black. The key specification here is URE rate, which stands for Unrecoverable Read Error rate. The Barracuda and Black and most others in that price range have a URE rate of 1 URE for every 1e14 bits read, which means you can expect 1 URE for every 12ish TBs read from the disk.
