  • 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.

  • 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)

Mine vibrates

russell halfar, Amazon

  • 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.

Very noisy!

  • Pros: Good deal in terms of price per GB.
  • 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 ...

Misleading product image

  • 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.

Check the size! This thing is 2.5 feet!

Lindsey H., Amazon

  • Summary: Please read the description of the drive for sale carefully! This is a 2.5' (foot) drive, not a 2.5" (inch) drive. This ended up working out OK for me, as I've found a number of alternate uses for the massive thing: welcome mat, boogie board, Honey I Shrunk The Kids cosplay.

Not as quiet as you might hope.

  • 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.
