Summary: Toshiba website is hard to work around when it comes to warranty for other than big appliances... couldn't make the Serial number or model to register anything on the support website, will have to call the warranty in person and make them deal with it by phone.
Cons: This is the "clickiest" notebook drive I've heard in a long time. Even during sequential reads/writes it frequently makes loud clicking sounds, even louder than a desktop hard drive near the end of it's life. It sounds like someone standing over your shoulder and smacking their lips. Drive seems ...
Summary: In the product image, it says "Made in Japan" but the actual product is made in China. Japanese corporates seem to have given up on manufacturing. I've used it for 4 months now but so far it's serving the purpose.
Summary: It's big and inexpensive, but it makes the characteristic hard drive read/write clicking noises I remember from 15 years ago. There's also a persistent vibration much worse than the older hard drives in my older laptops. I can't wait to swap in a SSD.
Summary: I purchased this to replace another 1TB drive which I use as an OS X Time Machine backup drive. This drive is in an external FireWire 800 case, and lives in my bedroom/office so I need it to be quiet. I purchased it based on others' reviews stating it was quiet.

Summary: The hard drive comes sealed on an anti-static bag held by special suspensor so the packaging is great. Something interesting I found is that though the drive itself says it is 1TB (LBA 1.953,525 168Sectors), it says as well at the label that the capacity is of 8455 MB (CYL16383, H16, S63)
Summary: This is not my primary drive, I bought this as a second internal drive for my old Macbook Pro and its used or storing movies only. The clicking thing bothers me though, as its both audible and worrisome.
Pros: Lots of Space for a good price
Cons: Very noisy, the drive clicks a lot during operation, which I don't think is normal. happens during read/write sessions and can be heard through sound
