Summary: Installed quickly. Inexpensive. Drive has been running error free for about a month now. I'll update the review if I run into a problem, but so far, no problem. Gave it five stars as it's the least expensive 7200 RPM drive I could find.
Summary: So far, so good. It's always tricky writing reviews for HDs. There almost should be a waiting period of a year before you are allowed to review them. I'd hate to recommend the thing and a week later it crashes. But I did it anyways.
Summary: Running on a 2 drive Win 8.1 Update 1 system, "Modern" (ha) interface bypassed. I bought this drive a few months ago, to be the bulk app and game store to my main OS SSD. It is fast, relatively quiet, with games and apps alike running off it without problem and at a good speed.
Summary: Good drive. I use this drive as a dynamic TV media server meaning it gets information written and rewritten to it every day. Moderately used for about 7 months now. I have no issue with sound or heat from the drive. Cons: None
Excerpt: I bought this drive as a cold spare for my Pegasus2 storage system. The price was very good for the capacity. Because it is a spare it will sit on my shelf and will be used only if there is a drive failure in my Pegasus2 unit.
Works great as all previous Toshiba drives have for me

Summary: I use these for external backup storage and go through one 2tb every 3 to 6 months. I have good luck with all name brand drives and since they are used for backup only and ocassional restore they are not under a lot of stress, although I have used a few in desktop workstations with excellent results...
Summary: Was looking for a drive to replace a 640GB HD that was being used for a DVR. Replaced it with this 2TB drive and it has been great. Lots more space, runs very quietly, and had no issues or errors. If you need a 2TB drive for general use, I would recommend this one.
Summary: I have purchased 4 of these 2tb units over the last 6 months. All have been perfect. Single drive in Sandra gets 140-150MB/s, 10.1-11 Random Access Time RAID 0 2x drives in Sandra gets 298-303MB/s, 8.9-9.5 Random Access Time RAID 0 4x drives in Sandra gets 570MB/s-582MB/s, 6.12-6.7 Random Access...
Summary: I understand these were originally produced for Hitachi but are now sold under the mfg (Toshiba) name. The last Hitachi I had lasted over 5 years with out a problem and is now a slave on another pc. No complaints but I bought the 2-year extended coverage just in case!
