Summary: I received the item within 1 week of ordering. I live in Guam, so that's fast. I have it as a secondary drive, as my SSD runs as my primary. 7200 rpm will never compare in speed with SSD's, but its still quick. Thank the gods it wasn't DOA. I forgot to partition and format the drive when I first installed it, and was wondering why the drive wasn't showing up on my computer. So just so everyone knows, make sure after installation, partition and format the drive!
Summary: Got one of these in my brand new Asus PC. Quiet, fast, runs barely warm, not even close to hot. I liked it so much that I bought a 2TB version of the same drive ($70 cheaper than WD black) to add to my system, once again, no hassles, just worked great. Had to use Windows Computer Management to assign a drive letter and quick format the drive before it showed up in Explorer. Took about 3 minutes to install, 1 minute to configure.
Summary: I got this drive as one of the Deals of the day, and it was a good deal so far, glad I ordered two of them. :) So far no problems and the Toshiba drive is so quiet over the WD Drive it replaced.
