Summary: Nice, cheap commodity drive that so far has been very good for me. I currently have 9 of these in service. 5 of them are in a raid5, and 4 of them are in two raid1 arrays. All have been spinning non-stop for about 6 months with no issues. read/write performance is on par with other drives I have owned. I'm hoping that they outlast their warranties and if they do, it will be money well spent.
Summary: I have 4 of these drives, most of them up an running for over a year and I have not had a single issue. They are worked pretty hard for sure as they house data for my SQL Server database. Performance is as good as you would expect from HDD drives. I have these 4 in a RAID 5 configuration now.
If it dies your out of luck! Might as well set a $50 dollar bill on fire

Summary: Died within 6 months and Toshiba has no record that this drive even existed. Did a google search and found out this is a european model. EDIT: Thank God for Amazon's customer service! Sent them an email and I'm getting refunded. Lesson learned. Always Buy WD.
