TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs {2 x 3 TB HDD = $150} vs {3 x @ TB SSD = $1811} 02/02/2016

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Needed a lot of storage so checked the HDD vs SSD price. Not being wealthy, I chose 2 Toshiba DT01AC300s to go along with the 3 I already own. These Toshibas are:

1. Cheap
2. Fast at 7200 RPM
3. Cool, ranging around 30 to 40 C.
4. Durable
5. Well packed.
6. Quick shipping
7. Both drives quickly formatted and put to use storing my many movies.

Cons: 1. No cables
2. Short warranty of two years. Remember, however, charge these or any Newegg item with the right card and extend the warranty by a year at no cost.

Other Thoughts: My 2 Toshibas came within a week.

Each drive was packed securely in a form-fitting bubble pack within a small cardboard box. The two small boxes were, themselves, packed into a larger cardboard box with another bubble pack securing their position on the box. Both drives were ready for action when they reached me.

All hard drive brands are a gamble and I also own the other major brands. They all have their good and bad sides. One of my 3 other DT01ACA300s failed at 8 months and Toshibas warranty gave me a new drive plus and it was relatively painless.
