    Toshiba DT01ACA300 reviews

    3TB DT01ACA300 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal Hard Drive is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Drive! I'm my expirence, for the lower cost drives, Toshiba has the best product! I've used Toshiba, WD, and Seagate drives at various points. I've used both internal, and external hard disk drives from those 3 companies. I've had issues on all 5 Seagate drives that I've used (bad boot sectors, corrupted files, etc). However, I've never had a Toshiba drive fail during normal use. I've only need using this particular Toshiba drive for 2 weeks, and I've got no complaints so far! P.S. for those who might not be sure about compatibility; I'm currently using this hard drive as the boot disk in a 2009 Mac Pro. It's simple to install, and the formatting of the drive took less than 20 min.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Drive for the money. I have purchased 2 of these drives. One came in a nice red Toshiba retail box the other in a plain brown box. B7h and I went around over this for a while, however the drive works and the money is right, I just believe THIS web page should say PACKAGING MAY VARY. That would dispel problem with the surprise and anger I felt opening the outer box. So, to sim up, decent drive works well I have to IT MAY BE OEM it might be retail. There now it says it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and affordable! So far good! 3tb is plenty of storage. There isn't really much to say as it is in fact only a hard drive and cannot be necessarily ranked on very much. Will write a new review if there is a failure, but I am doubtful there will be one. However, It is always a risk for a storage unit with the risk being higher or lower for certain units. To conclude, the hard drive is fast, cheap, and generous in space!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from too loud Pros: Inexpensive 3TB drive. It's probably great too.Cons: Too loud. Returned it immediately. Though it's certainly not the loudest 7200 RPM drive.The drive was mounted in an Antec ATX case via rubber rings on the drive enclosure. The case is inside my desk (closed door front, open back for air/cables). I could clearly hear the drive from anywhere in my 2-bed, square-layout, 800sqft apartment.I went digging and found for comparison idle/load acoustics on other 3TB drives:*this drive*: 27/28 dBWD AV/Purple/Red: 23/24WD Green/Blue: 23/27Seagate ST3000DM001: 24/26WD Black: 29/34Hitachi 7K3000: 29/36and two other drives I've owned (and never minded the noise of):WD10EADS 1TB: 24/29Samsung ST3320620AS 320GB: 25/30 (had 3xRAID5)As a storage drive on a desktop that I sit next to, the slower 5400/5900 RPM models are worth it for the quiet. I know that now.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Toshiba - Worst Freaking Support Imaginable Haven't yet installed the drive because before I did I wanted to make sure I had the latest firmware and drivers for Windows 10. Had to call because the Toshiba website support page did not only not have them, but it was impossible to find this drive on their support page. I did find drivers on a third parties website, but not for Windows 10. So I called Toshiba, was on hold for 29 minutes and 10+ minutes later the rep still would not provide a driver. He stated he could not recommend a driver and kept telling me to contact the manufacturer of my computer. After numerous attempts, because he kept interrupting me telling me to go to their support page for the drivers, which previously he insisted I get from the manufacturer. It was obvious this guy didn't know what he was talking about and refused to put his supervisor on the phone.
