Summary: It comes with no instructions or software or ATA 600 cable. Toshiba's website and support is a time waster. If you are looking to clone or anything other than use this as a basic backup drive you will have to purchase 3rd party software! I had a defective drive (Toshiba verified)first return I have had to make and the processing time is ridiculous, having seconds thoughts about online purchases if this ever happens again.
Summary: I installed this as a second drive to my main SSD. As a secondary it got very little use and failed after 15 months. It did have a 24 month warranty and Toshiba will replace. Lucky for me my OS wasn't on it.
Summary: When I entered the model number they said it did not exist when I entered the serial number it said does not exit. When I called them I got the same reply and more if you no what I mean. I don't like being called that. No more product from them. Oh and it was only 4 months old when it died.
6GB/sec SATA drive only writes at 30MB/sec less than 1/2 the data rate of a Western Digital drive

Summary: Unacceptable performance for a 2 TB drive. It takes 20 hours to copy a full 2 TB vs. 4 hours to copy 2 TB to WD Caviar Black 6GB/sec SATA drive only writes at 30MB/sec less than 1/3 the data rate of a Western Digital drive It would be OK for a lower cost drive to have slower seek times but not 1/3 the data rate
Summary: Bought this hard drive less than a year ago and had some issues with it slowing up from time to time out of the box, should have taken that as a warning as the hard drive is now faulty and unusable and I found that my warranty only covered 30 days. It was very fast when it was working properly which is the only positive I can give it. Make sure you get a decent warranty when buying this, or any other hard drive.
Cons: Сначала думал что посторонний шум появился от старых hdd отключил сначала один, потом второй,звук остался....Отключил новый Тошиба, всё сразу встало на свои места и в комнате воцарилась тишина...Похоже брак попался...Наверное повезу!!!
