5 out of 5 eggs My Gosh BeJesus - For $85 you can't go wrong! 05/26/2013

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA200 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 3 (6.0 Gb/S) 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros:

** Got two of them on sale for $85, as of today they're $100
Still spins without the dreaded click of death
** Cheap storage
** Out preformed my SATA-600 - 2TB - Western Digital WD Black WD2002FAEX for half the price !!

HDTune results:
Min 86.6
Max 194.5
Avg 143.6
Access time 12.8ms
Burst 312.4 MB/s
cpu usage 3.8%

Cons:

2 yr warranty - but what the heck, the Western Digital WD Black WD2002FAEX only comes with a 3 yr warranty and I paid $163 for this drive in April of 2013. So I'm getting the same space for almost HALF the price of the WD drive.

Other Thoughts:

I'm buying more hard drives than I ever have before due to the miserable reliability of hard drives in general.

Time will tell if these drives will last. I've had several hard drive failures lately and it's a dice roll on what to buy now days. Seagate, WD have failed as well as Samsung

I have 2 of these hooked up in RAID1 to a HighPoint RocketRAID 2720SGL PCI-Express 2.0 x8 Low Profile SATA controller and use them for media storage. I got tired of backing up my video/movie files so this works perfect.

If you haven't checked out that controller card you should, because for less than $150 for this controller card, it's the cheapest fastest alternative to get SATA 600 speed at a fraction of the cost of other controller cards. Just search for that controller and read the reviews and make your own conclusion.

I just purchase 2 of the Toshiba DT01ACA300 3TB SATA 6.0Gbs drives and hope I have the same result as this drive.
