Not the full 3 TB, but still a decent price

Pros: - Cheap for what you're getting
- Cheap warranties available
- Not actually that loud (if you have more than a couple fans in your system the noise will be almost undetectable compared to those)
- Decent speed for a hard drive (still doesn't compare to an SSD obviously, but there are many slower hard drives out there)

Cons: - It's not a true 3 TB, rather it's 3 trillion bytes, so you are getting something closer to 2.72 TB.

Other Thoughts: - Make sure you set it to GPT partition before installing your OS, otherwise it will likely only show as a 2TB drive.
- Still working fine as of Mar. 13th, 2019, roughly 3 years later.

Other Thoughts: It's rad. You should get one.

I literally never used this drive.

Pros: It sat "on" for breif periods as a "hot swap" if required, in my backup box (software raid used, this drive was never allocated or used)

It didn't destroy the machine or set it on fire, it formatted once... thats the only thing good I can say for it.

Cons: This never actually worked. I tested it when I first got it.. copied a few hundred gigs back and forth, seemed fine, left it sitting blank in a machine in case I needed it. The machine was left on for a few hours here and there, never really used, was just "cold storage" for some files, and this drive was never used past initial tests.

When I finally decided to create a mirror using it and one of my other drives, it kept causing crashes and fails (software mirror of data, nothing fancy) drive will sometimes report that it exists, will not format, controller sometimes responds with smart errors, one of my systems it causes the board not to even post... it simply doesn't work even in the machines that "see" it. It won't format, it's unusable after literally near zero use.

Can't warranty it, as the label was never printed with the warranty information. Now I know to check any drive I buy day I get it to make sure the label information is complete. This was a complete waste of money.

Other Thoughts: If you buy anything from toshiba make sure you check warranty status day one. This drive doesn't show up in their system, even though the sticker is an obvious match, and it was obviously purchased through here. I'm not happy with this purchase as it died with near zero use and now is just a desk ornament.

Toshiba drives just don't last

Pros: Give plenty of errors and warnings before they die.

Cons: Die much faster than other drives.

Other Thoughts: I ordered 3x pairs of these exact model disks (6 total) in 2013 from 3 separate vendors. As of yesterday 5 of 6 drives are completely failed and the 6th is throwing errors and will be failed soon. None of the drives had yet crossed 30,000 hours, meaning they're failing MUCH faster than they should be, and uniformly as if designed to fail in a short window.

With other magnetic drives running 60,000+ hours before throwing errors (in the same server), and the best drives clocking in 100k+, Toshiba's failure rate is exceedingly high, and why I cannot recommend their storage for any use.

1 star because it physically exists and they managed to put the sticker on squarely. Otherwise these are a waste of money.

Dying drive

Pros: Big, fast, reasonably priced. Made for a decent storage drive while it lasted. SMART actually seems to work on this drive.

Cons: Around three years in and the drive started throwing SMART errors. A couple months after that and it won't sustain 1 MB/s transfer rates. Out of warranty and now useless. Two eggs because it was kind enough to announce it's imminent demise, allowing me to increase backup frequency and then to super-slowly transfer files that were changed since the last backup after it decided it didn't like being useful.

DOA. Hard drive not recognized by any desktop.

Pros: Large Space

Cons: Hard drive was not detected

Other Thoughts: I can see why the ratings are low for this guy. I've bought several hard drives over the years. This is my first DOA, unfortunately, I was waiting on other parts before I requested a return so I'm outside of the 30 day window.
