TOSHIBA PH3300U-1I72 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: They were on sale when I bought em. That about the only good thing I have to say about these.

Cons: I bought 2 of these 12 months and 1 week ago. The first one failed after maybe 6 or 7 months and the second one just failed today.

If that wasnt bad enough when I called Toshiba to get an RMA on the drives I got transferred back and forth between 3 different departments about 8 different times before I finally got ahold of someone who took responsibility for it. All three departments kept saying that they didnt deal with this particular model of hard drive. Turns out the first number I called was apparently the correct one O_o.

Then to add insult to insult to injury the company wanted me to pay for the return shipping of the defective item. I got news for you Toshiba and every other manufacturer, If I buy your product and the stupid thing fails within the warranty period then you better sack up and make it right. Its not my fault the drives died premature deaths. Ive been an IT professional since the early 90s so dont try and put your terrible manufacturing quality problems on me. Im not paying for your mistakes. I'll pay for my mistakes which in this case was buying these terrible drives but warranty returns are no my responsibility. If you try and make it my responsibility then youve just lot a customer. I almost always stick to WD and Seagate for my HDDs and now Im paying for going against my own better judgement for the sake of trying to save some money.


Other Thoughts: Toshiba's customer service sucks as bad as these HHDs

Seagate Expansion 4TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 4TB, USB 3.0, super quiet. I bought 2 of these on sale back in April and they are on sale again now and Im thinking about buying 2 more.

Cons: Activity light is toward the rear of the case which isnt a huge deal to me but it could have been located in a better spot. It could use a little bit better cooling design. The drives to run fairly warm but not nearly as bad for me as Ive seen in a lot of these reviews. Once the warranty runs out on them I will probably wire up some small cooling fans to mine or I may take them out of their inclosures and mount them internally if i decide to buy a couple newer ones since they are on sale again.

Other Thoughts: Theres a lot of crazy stuff going on in these reviews which are probably giving a slightly askew view of this product. A ton of people are giving reviews of 2TB and 3TB drives instead of this one, Ive seen people talking about the connector being proprietary which it isnt. Its a standard micro b USB 3.0 connector, seen someone bashing it because it didnt work with Windows XP, ummm yeah it wont really work with antiquated operating systems so if your running XP you can try using the disk wizard program from Seagate but dont blame your 4TB drive if it doesnt work, Someone gave this one egg because it wasnt powered via the USB my a 4TB drive that is, A lot of people are complaining about the fact that some drives are failing after 1-2 years but this is an on going problem with large capacity hard drives in general. They dont have the same longevity of the smaller ones. I could keep going but the point is take these reviews with a grain of salt.

Razer Sphex Gaming Grade Desktop Skin

5 out of 5 eggs Best mouse pads hands down. 05/30/2013

This review is from: Razer Sphex Gaming Grade Desktop Skin

Pros: Its so thin you dont even relaize its there but it has a wonderful smooth texture to it that my G500 just slides across effortlessly. I like the fact that it cleans up effortlessly with a little soap and water. I also like how it somehow sticks in place yet theres no adhesive. you can pull it back up and move it around if you want to but once its down its stuck. its not moving unless you peel it up :) Also came with some awesome stickers that you can put on your PC or whatever.

Cons: None so far
