FAST, but will fail sooner than HGST

NeilAC, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I have about 20 of these 3TB drives and about 10 of the 4TB drives. These 3TB drives are nice and fast and very affordable. I have 6 of them in RAID 5 with a read write speed over 750 MBps. I expect and plan for these drives to fail. It's more affordable to buy them and expect them to fail than invest in pricey HGST drives. I always have data spanned across three different storage platforms to ensure backup in case of drive or RAID array failure.
  • Pros: Fast, High Capacity, RAID
  • Cons: Bad support, Unreliable

Good Drive

  • Excerpt: Hard to believe hard drives have come down so much in price. These are a great deal! 3TB, that is a lot of space! We are using these as part of a RAID for our production environment.

Good value

  • Excerpt: An excellent price for adding more storage of virtual machines using an esata dock for fast data transfers and hot swappability. With each new drive I also get a StoraDrive anti-static case by Newer Technology. It's a great way to manage multiple hard drives.

Works great in a desktop RAID

  • Excerpt: Four stars thus far since I've only had these for a couple weeks now, but I purchased 4 of these drives and they've worked wonderfully in updating the storage for my Pegasus R4 Thunderbolt RAID. They're a pinch faster than the OEM 1TB Toshiba drives they're replacing and just as quiet. Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase and would easily recommend them for this purpose.

Works but had to upgrade dock

Wakeem, B&H Photo
16 November 2014
  • Excerpt: Apparently this thing is newer than my previous Startech drive dock, it would only let me format it 800ish GBs. After I got a new StarTech drive dock I was able to format it to the full 3TB. Just an FYI if you are using an external enclosure or dock. The drive itself has performed great so far. Transfers fast and keeps cool.
  • Pros: High Capacity, Portable, Quiet
  • Cons: Required Upgrade
