failing after 6 months

Pros: none (do not buy)

Cons: failing after less than 6 months
extremely expensive for hard drive statistics

Overall Review: This is the stock hard drive in the Asus Q302l laptop. After the first 6 months of use I started noticing reduced performance and freezing. Using a smart scanner and chkdsk showed a high number of bad blocks and sectors so I am replacing this hard drive with something new from a different brand.

Looking at the hard drive statistics (storage capacity, cache size, etc) other drives from other manufacturers have much better performance in all areas for similar prices. Finally, independent testing has proven toshiba hard drives have among the highest failure rates in the industry. Your money would be well spent elsewhere.

Great as a storage drive

Pros: Easy install
Seems faster than the SATA2 drive it replaced even though the new drive is still connected to SATA2
Had 0 issues with it as a secondary/storage drive in my laptop for 5 months so far
Price was decent
Packaging was ok, it was in a form fitting bubble wrap sleeve, very tight fit so it didn't pop out, more like an OEM type of package (didn't come in a Toshiba box)

Cons: Seemed a little expensive for a 500 gig drive.

Overall Review: The Western Digital drive that came with my HP laptop died after about 3-4 years of ownership, even though I didn't fully realize the drive was failing. It formatted and was recognized by windows, but files started disappearing and would soon fail to boot and I thought the laptop itself was to blame. Got an SSD for the OS and still had the issue with the Western drive so I got this Toshiba to replace it. As a storage/program installation drive it performs great and I'm very happy with it. I don't use my laptop all that often, so it's nice to know that when I do boot it up, everything is still there.

In general I steer clear of WD drives due to my own personal high failure rate with them and usually stick with Seagate drives, but it's nice to know Toshiba drives seem to be good quality, time will tell.

Toshiba 500gb HDD

Pros: Toshiba HDDs were usually superior, and could the bumps and daily wear of a business laptop computer.

Cons: Toshiba HDD was not recognized by Windows, nor was the HDD recognized by the usual workbench SATA interface.

Newegg would not refund / return the defective Toshiba HDD for some reason.

I am going to dispute the charge on my credit card.

Ordered 3

Pros: These are a perfectly good affordable 500Gb HDD. If you are looking for an inexpensive drive to replace a bad drive or a smaller drive these work great.

Cons: I had 0 problems with 2 of these. The third I got windows 7 installed and it got loud on me. Sounded like maybe the heads were touching the platters in it. I RMA'd the drive with Newegg and they sent me a new one no questions asked. 0 Problems with the RMA drive!

Overall Review: Dinged 1 Egg for the 1 of 3 drives being bad. It isn't a huge deal you can't expect every product to come out perfect.
