TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs DOA replacement is working fine! 10/29/2014

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: 1. 3gb for less than $90 US dollars
2. huge capacity
3. fully compatible w/ my old Thermaltake USB-2/ e-SATA docking station
4. quiet and fast (SATA-2 mobo)

Cons: Fingers crossed because this is a DOA replacement...the first one died and got a free replacement from Newegg (great customer svc!) in less than 10 days...I hope this one lasts as long as my current large capacity Seagate & W/D drives.

Other Thoughts: My docking station (Thermaltake USB-2/ e-SATA) is able to recognize the whole 3g drive, actually 2.72gb, despite the fact that it says it only supports up to 2gb hard drives, weird! I hear that you must convert it to GPT, for storage only, in order for Win7 to reveal the total capacity. I was able to use Acronis disk director to initially set it up, great program!! My system has so many hard drives...I was wondering if I should convert them to a RAID system?? Please comment!!

HooToo HT-PC002 SuperSpeed USB 3.0 2-Port PCI-E Add-On Expansion Card with Internal USB 3.0 19-Pin Motherboard Male Header & 5V 4-Pin Molex Power Connector (VIA VL800 Chipset, Solid Capacitors)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: correction...
Please ignore the A/C adapter comment part of my review. I was referring to the TekRepublic USB 3.0 4-port HUB that is plugged to the HooToo card. It also comes with an A/C adapter. I inadvertently partly reviewed that product with HooToo together, here. My mistake and sorry for the confusion. Everything stands except the A/C comment...just ignore the A/C statement!!

Cons: see above

Other Thoughts: see above

HooToo HT-PC002 SuperSpeed USB 3.0 2-Port PCI-E Add-On Expansion Card with Internal USB 3.0 19-Pin Motherboard Male Header & 5V 4-Pin Molex Power Connector (VIA VL800 Chipset, Solid Capacitors)

Pros: This is a great product. I was able to install it in a Asus P6T mobo with very little effort. I'm averaging 115mg/sec...it was tested by transferring files from an eSATA device to a Seagate 3gb USB3 HD . It seems to work fine without the A/C adapter; hence, not using it. I have not experienced any issues thus far. It appears to have fixed my PC not going to sleep issue, manually only. Auto sleep still an issue. I have a USB 3.0 4-port HUB by TekRepublic attached to it for a total of 5 USB 3 Ports. This works well since my mobo only supports USB 2. I got both on special. This is a cool device. It makes my old, but still functional Intel i7 920, PC seem less ancient.

Cons: The only minor con is that I had somewhat a difficult time attaching a 4-pin molex to the HooToo card because the cables of my Corsair 750W PSU are very stiff, thus, not easy to move cables around inside the mid-tower case. And plus the 4-pin header location should be at the end (180 deg) instead on the side (90 deg). This would make it easier to connect the molex at least in my mobo.

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure if the A/C adapter is necessary. I'm not using it. I have a Corsair 750W PSU. This could be the reason.
