Pros:

Cons:

After installing 8 of these in RAID5 using a Highpoint controller, I got the infamous BEEP! last night, signaling a critical error. Have to use Chrome to check the Highpoint controller because of invalid security certificate and any version of IE kicks you out from the controller web page.

Anyway, the array had failed and started automatic rebuild. Checked SHI Smart status and noted 5 reallocated sectors on each of the 8 drives, so next thing was to check the event log. 5 pages of logged events including bad sector recoveries, since 9/27/13. That's about 150 events at 30 per page, in 3 months.

I use this array for backing up my movie library, currently have about 2K titles, so not exactly critical data. But do yourself a favor - stay far, far away from these Toshiba drives.

Other Thoughts:

Highpoint event log, for your reading pleasure - just the first page:
