Pros: Very fast for a rotating drive, high throughput and fast seeks.
Error recovery supposedly can be disabled, so it should work in RAID arrays. I'll try soon enough.
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: I have had very good luck with Hitachi drives, I used to have good luck with Seagate, but I have replaced so many of them in the last couple years that I will not be using them any longer. WD Black and enterprise drives are great, but too expensive. I hope these work as well as the Hitachi drives of the last 10 years.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This one worked for 349 days!
Cons: Then it died
Other Thoughts: Luckily we have a reasonably current backup. No more seagate consumer level drives for important customer PCs. I used to be a Seagate fan, but I have been RMAing these things for about a year now, and I am scared to use the replacements.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Desk 5TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive HDWC250XK3J1 Black
Pros: Inexpensive and fast
Cons: None yet
Other Thoughts: I bought two of these to use as backup drives. I have filled both of them to capacity about 12 times so far. No complaints. Speed is great, I worry a little about heat in an essentially sealed plastic (insulating) housing.READ FULL REVIEW
