Add 6TB of storage to your system to store and quickly access files such as movies, photos, music, documents and more with the 6TB X300 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal Hard Drive from Toshiba. Designed for applications such as graphic design, gaming, and animation, this drive connects to your system's 3.5" bay using its SATA III 6 Gb/s interface.

This 6TB drive also features a rotational speed of 7200 rpm and a 128MB cache to help ensure uninterrupted data transfers. Additionally, the drive is built with features to help ensure it will have a strong operating life, such as Ramp Loading technology, Native Command Queuing (NCQ), and Drive Stabilization technology. Ramp Load technology helps ensure that the recording head never touches the disk media. The result is less wear to the recording head and media, as well as improved drive protection while in transit. This drive is compatible with Windows & Mac systems and is protected by a limited 2-year warranty.

Designed for Gamers and Professionals
A rotational speed of 7200 rpm combined with a 128MB data buffer delivers performance for gamers and professionals
High Storage Density and Capacity
High-precision head positioning supported by advanced format technology (physical 4kB sector) and dual stage actuators for high storage density and capacity of 6TB
Real-Time Performance
On-board cache algorithm and buffer management optimize cache allocation between read and write cycles for improved real-time drive performance
Data Protection Technology
Ramp loading technology reduces wear to the recording head and media for improved drive reliability. Built-in shock sensors detect impact, shielding adjacent track data
Drive Stabilization Technology
A motor shaft secured at both ends helps reduce system-induced vibrations, thus stabilizing the platters for improved tracking accuracy and performance during read and write operations
Native Command Queuing (NCQ) Support
Optimizes the order in which received read and write commands are executed, resulting in increased performance and reduced mechanical workload from the drive.
Other Features
  • Serial ATA interface
  • Perpendicular Magnetic Recording (PMR) technology
  • Tunnel Magneto-Resistive (TMR) Recording Head technology
  • Low power consumption with adaptive power modes and Serial ATA DIPM

    Toshiba X300 reviews

    6TB X300 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal Hard Drive is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I hae bought a second same size drive. I have been using this in an Mobius 2 bay enclosure using firewire and jbod mod for a week now, with the hd formatted and installed as a bootable copy of my computer internal drive. I have been running in external boot mode as a test of stability before adding the second drive of same size, which will also be formatted to boot mode and I will run the second one for a week. Then I will be reverting to the computer internal drive for normal operation and will treat the external drives as data duplicate drives, bootable if internal drive fails. So far the toshiba drive and the Mobius enclosure work fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Fast quality drive for NAS storage I use these in a multi unit NAS array - 5 drives per box (x4 currently). The Toshiba X300 series drives look to be about the best in transfer rates, rotation speed and cache among the mixed set of drives occupying my network. I store 10 years of projects on the network for quick access AFTER making optical backups which are stored in fire safes. As yet I have not yet had to replace a Toshiba drive.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Won't fit into MacProClassic drive sleds Of the 4 mounting screws provided with the MacPro drive sled, only the 2 screws closest to the SATA connector line up on the 6TB Toshiba X300. Either get out the gaffer tape or (apparently?) buy the 5TB version of this drive (which someone in the Q&A said has standard screw locations). Re: the attached photo, standard drive GREEN on the left, Toshiba BLUE on the right. Great HDD otherwise.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, recommended! I really love the size and speed of this hard drive. It's a great high speed alternative to the smaller solid state drives. With a 6tb compasity it has room for all your large media files and provides super fast data transfer speeds. This drive came in at the perfect price point compared to all the others out there.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice capacity for a very good price I have three 6 TB Toshibas currently in use with my 2010 Mac Pro. One is installed internally. Note that 6 TB or larger drives from Toshiba, WD, etc., won't work with the stock Mac Pro drive sleds. Fortunately, there is an easy fix. OWC sells a sled that allows you to install these high capacity drives in 2009-2012 Mac Pros.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and ultra reliable! Super fast and reliable high capacity hard drives. I've been running multiple Toshiba x300 drives on my media server and backup tower with never any issues. These drives run 24/7 on my media server ranging from 52C to 65C and never run into issues. Fast transfer rates with great life expectancy.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor and unscrupulous service HDD came in nonworking condition , your service agent did not send any ARM form and now you refuse to change it !!! I'm sorry .. sorry for the time and hope spent from this moment I will stop buying from B&H. because of poor and unscrupulous service.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Won't Mount properly in Classic Mac Pro This is a great drive except for the fact that it won't mount properly in a classic Mac Pro drive sled. I bought one, loaded it and then tried to mount it to the internal drive sled. Screws don't line up. The 5TB version works fine.
