TOSHIBA MQ01ABB200 2TB 5400 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5

2 out of 5 eggs Fussy Drive 01/08/2015

This review is from: TOSHIBA MQ01ABB200 2TB 5400 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5" Hard Drive

Pros: Capacity, Form Factor, Price.

Cons: Hard to recognise in older O/S's like XP and Vista.
Only seems to like internal (5-wire) SATA power with 3.3v supply. Suffered complete data loss once, got lots of Chkdsk errors after reformatting. Very glitchy. Is it the advanced ATA8 interface? Dunno, still troubleshooting.

Other Thoughts: Before putting into a dedicated Nettop home server, I was swapping files using an external USB adapter powered by a 4wire Molex connector. This drive did not like it at all, but I have used the same rig on a half-dozen other SATA drives without issue. Still, data loss and chkdsk errors unforgivable for a new drive. Still might RMA with Mfg'r.

G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL9D-8GBSR
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Runs at 1866 (only when) using XMP Profile(s) in Bios...
but just marginally at 1.5v. Not bad performance for the voltage.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: If just plugged into my mobo modules run at 1600Mhz with stock Bios settengs. When I changed Bios to XMP (Profile 1), timings changed to 1866 at 9-10-9-27 with Cmd Clk =2 at 1.5v, and my sticks are just barely stable. I am considering tweaking voltage up to ~1.52. XMP Profile 2 lowers Cmd Clk =1 and they will not post. Still happy
