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.
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.
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!
Summary: Bought this on 2012-10-24 from NCIX z 79.99, SMART error on 2013-04-10. While I was browsing the net on 2013-04-10, this window poped up http://i.imgur.com/vRQedYK.png I checked SMART status and this showed about Reallocated Sector Count, http://i.imgur.com/3sdc5yA.png This is my first time having a...

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
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
Excerpt: Scan service was excellent, but the drive i received kept throwing up SMART errors and was making a fairly loud click noise every 2-3 seconds. I had previously ordered a couple of 1TB Toshiba drives from one of Scan's competitors and they also failed within a day or so....
Summary: I thought Toshiba was a well know brand and was expecting a decent drive. The HDD arrived today in excellant packaging, in the antistatic sealed bag, inside a bubbled jiffy bag, wrapped with masses of bubble wrap in a large box surrounded by paper.
