Very high failure rate/QA issues

Carl Bader, Amazon
24 July 2014
  • Summary: I think there are some serious QA issues with these drives. On the last shipment 3 out if 4 where DOA. Amazon replaced them fast. On the previous order 1 out of 4 had bad sectors out of the box. That's obviously a very high percentage.

Ordered two 2TB drives & both are DOA

K. McDonough, Amazon
22 April 2014
  • Summary: Neither unit was recognized in two different computer systems, and one of them made a rhythmic 'clicking' sound along with a LOUD hum when it was powered/spun up. I've used this model drive quite a bit and haven't had any problems in the past.

22 April 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this drive originally due to the solid reviews that it had. I needed a nice sized drive to store data on, and thought this was just perfect. Turns out that I hit the Dead on Arrival lotto, not once, but twice!

Disk DOA

cdilla, Scan
31 May 2015
  • Excerpt: Scan service is excellent as usual, but the HDD was DOA and, looking at other comments, I'm not the only person to have had this. Will avoid Toshiba HDDs for now.

  • Summary: I bought a Promise Pegasus 2 12TB array that uses 6 of these dreadful drives. The first experience of these drives was in an ACER computer which used two of these very unreliable drives in a RAID array.

The product failed first time round but the replacement was ok

cantbebothered, Scan
29 November 2014
  • Excerpt: Product failed on setup with a serious surface error. It was replaced without question but I wasn't notified of the delivery of the replacement and it was by a fluke that someone was around when it was delivered and no signature was requested at time of delivery. - Sorry but not impressed
