  • The SATA interface 7,200 RPM desktop series drives are targeted at desktop all-in-one and gaming PCs, home servers, external HDDs, and consumer electronics products such as set-top boxes and digital video recorders.
  • Serial ATA (SATA) is a serial interface that can operate at speeds up to 6Gb/s. SATA is scalable and enables easy integration, high performance, and efficient system designs. SATA is the evolutionary replacement for the Parallel ATA (PATA) storage interface.
  • Ramp Load technology restricts the drive's recording head from touching the disk media, resulting in improved protection of the drive while being transported and less wear to the recording head.
  • Optimized for use in power-friendly consumer and commercial desktop computing systems, the drive's power management technology provides significant power consumption savings at 5.2 watts (or less) active idle, and 1.0 watt standby and sleep power requirements.
  • Toshiba's advanced servo techniques and mechanical design minimizes drive acoustics, making them as silent as possible during operation.

I have purchased four of these in the last six months and the have all been flawless. They are plenty fast, have a large cache and will hold more data than I will ever need for not that much more than either a two or one terabyte version. I monitor them carefully as they are installed in a NAS and run 24/7 and to date, the oldest one has been working perfectly. I am very pleased and highly recommend it.

After reading a few other reviews on here and elsewhere, thought I'd clear up a bit of confusion about large drives.

If you have Windows and you are going to initialize the disk for the first time, you are usually prompted to partition as MBR (Master Boot Record) or GPT (GUID Partition Table). If you chose MBR (like I did at first), you will notice the unallocated space is split in two.

If you choose GPT instead of MBR, or convert the disk to GPT, you will have your contiguous 3TB of unallocated space. For why this is so, search for "GPT vs MBR" or something similar on the internet.

So far the drive has performed well, no issues.

Hope this helps!

These are from the Hitachi drive division sale to Toshiba. I use them in RAID for nearline storage and so far so good.
Bought previous batches and so am a repeat customer of these drives.
No problems with it, packaging from AMAZON direct is the best! Individually boxed for protection.

Bought this as a gift to give a Christmas-gift homebuild for a family member some more storage space. Always hesitant of using mechanical hard drives for storage of important things when they're not in a RAID 1 mirrored array.
The likelyhood of a mechanical HDD failing is over 20% in the 1st yr, ie, 1 in 5 or worse HDDs will fail w/in the 1st year(according to a couple different cloud storage firms). So, I ran it 24hrs a day for 3 days with constant reads and writes before putting it in the PC. Seemed to take it like a champ, and was decently quick on transfer rates too, can't recall the exact MB/s, but I was mildy impressed nonetheless.

I would recommend stress testing all your HDDs you depend on for at least a couple days if not longer. If it's going to fail under normal/heavy usage, it's better for it to fail right after you get it, before you put anything important on it, than it is 6mo down the line w/ crucial data on it. Of course keeping a backup is important, but restoring a backup is time consuming and isn't always 100% up to date. Better to root out the bad ones and minimize the likelyhood of needing to use that backup; or, your backup drive fails, lol.

I've purchased 2 of these 3TB units for use in a software raid-1 setup. Both drives arrived sealed in Toshiba packaging and cleared initial testing (read full drive, write drive full of random data, read the drive again, wipe drive with zeroes, hammer with bonnie++ for a day, run SMART long test). These format to about 2.7 TiB each, which is expected. Performance on raw sequential writes (directly to the disk - no filesystem) on these start out at about 187~ MiB/s at the beginning of the drive, 140~ MiB/s towards the end of the drive. Not too shabby.

As for reliabliity, there is a reason why I have these set up in a raid-1. I won't be surprised if there are failures. But for the price, performance and capacity, that's a dice roll I'm willing to take.

Drive installed and was working fine. Used for backups and died. In process of contacting Toshiba for a RMA. Only bought this in Sept 2013 and now it's dead. All my data lost. What a bummer.

Update

The guys at Toshiba did a wonderful job replacing my failed drive. Even sent me a prepaid label and box for the defective one to sent back. In fact they sent me the replacement (brand new) and only ask that you return the failed drive in the box provided.

So far the new drive has been working fine. I am relieved to know that there are still vendors that honor their warranty and though there may have been a miscommunication at first.. Toshiba customer care took good care of me.

Flawless hard drive. I bought (2) from Amazon.com LLC (not one of the 3rd party marketplace vendors) on Black Friday. These are great drives, they are very fast, and quiet too. I have previously bought several of this same model from other sources and had them in a system about 1-1/2 years I think, and all of them work fine. I use the HD Tune Pro hard drive utility to measure their speed and drive health. They seem to be a cool running drive, at least in my application. Toshiba hard drives are quite an underrated brand, in my opinion. Two year warranty is acceptable and is competitive with other brand, I would prefer three year warranty of course. A few years ago I was buying Hitachi hard drives that had five year warranties. Good all around and nothing bad to say about them so far.

I ordered 2 of these December 2013 to create a mirrored raid. That went well until February when the first of the 2 drives failed. Amazon was great about allowing the return. I replaced it with a Seagate drive (ST3500641AS-RK). It is now May 2014, 6 months after the initial purchase and the 2nd of the two drives failed. Again Amazon has been great about a return for credit and refund (combination). I will be going back to Seagate for a replacement.

Consider this carefully before you buy. Two failures in two drives in 6 months. To my mind, it doesn't matter how fast a drive is if it fails and takes all your data with it with no warning in a very short time frame.
