Summary: Purchased this hard drive for my first build in April 2014,it lasted only 3 months,started making a clicking sound when i would start up my computer,so i did a scan on my computer tower,through Intel Rapid Storage Technology and it informed me to replace my hard drive,it was going to fail.
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: 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!
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...
Summary: Hab die Platte (2 Stück) in NAS verbaut - die NAS steht bei mir im Wohnzimmer (HS-251). Die HDDs sind extrem laut (nicht nur beim Lesen/Schreiben, sondern auch im Leerlauf). Für Desktop mit etwas lauterem Lüfter durchaus zu gebrauchen, aber nicht wenns ein wenig leiser sein soll.
