  • Summary: I bought 3 of these for a ZFS pool on my home server that is on 24 hours a day. I haven't had any issues in their first few months of service and I hope they continue to last for years to come.

3TB is 3G fast

Paw Paw, Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: When I ordered this product I was greatly excited about having a 3TB hard drive to run as primary in my OS. However, 3TB hard drives are not automatically recognize by the OS,it only recognized 746GB. After doing a google search and installing intel rapid storage 10.6, my OS was able to recognize 2736GB. The hard drive runs smoothly & quiet,and is very fast.

Died in less than a year...

  • Summary: ...And I mean immediately, without warning. One second it is there, the next it is not...just the click of death. What is worse, is Toshiba does not list this model on it's support page, so I don't know how to return it. Sorry, Toshiba is now on my s*** list.

good drives

Samuel Owens, Amazon
20 June 2014
  • Summary: Got 2 more of these from TigerDirect when they were on a great sale, found these on a good price, and used discount points to make it even better. Using 4 of these in a Promise NS 4600 NAS, for about a week no, so far so good. Speed on this box was never great, but I think these drives are faster than the last batch I used. We'll see how long they last.

Failed twice in less than 6 months

Electronic Nut "Ed", Amazon
18 June 2014
  • Summary: Decided to try this Toshiba drive due to price, as I accumulate various forms of digital media over time, from pics, MP3/FLAC, and now HD vids. Mostly use WD Green, as they run cool and low power (speed is not a priority), with the occasional Seagate thrown in. The Toshiba failed twice in less than 6 months, currently trying to recover the lost data as I write this. Got the "drive needs to be formatted" message again. Nearly 2gb of MKV and mp4 files might have gone poof.

Works

Amazon Customer, Amazon
6 June 2014
  • Summary: It showed up on time and was packed well. I installed it and ran Start | Computer | Manage | Disk Management (running Win 7) and ran the quick format on the drive and it was ready to use in 10 minutes after opening the box. Can't argue with that. Don't have a lot of history with Toshiba drives so I don't have anything to say about their reliability but considering that all drives these days are built on automated lines and most if not all use time tested components, I...
