The DT01ACA series is Toshiba's first 3.5-inch hard drive for use in power-friendly consumer and commercial desktop computers. The 7,200 RPM drive series is engineered for high performance and low power for cooler operation.

The 3.5-inch DT01ACA drives include Advanced Sector Format technology, which utilizes the industry standard 4K byte-per-sector configuration and improved error-correcting code functionality to enhance data integrity while making more efficient use of the storage surface area.

Nothing but good things to say about this drive I have 12 3TB, 4 2TB and 3 1TB Toshiba drives all of them ranging 4 years to 2 months old, not one has failed. I currently run 78 drives in 3 systems. WD and Seagate quality has being going down had 6 3TB Seagate drives fail 2 months after warranty expired all in a week. Wish NCIX would get the 4 and 5 TB drives in.
nothing bad to say about this drive.
I never give anything a 5 star but this product is pretty darn close

99 bucks is cheap
pretty fast almost 200mb transfer
drive was made in march 2015, newest part in my pc

Inexpensive for its size
Seems to be a great drive. It feels nice and fast and I can't hear it over the quite fans or the 1tb Samsung drive in my system. This is an awesome drive for the money, especially when it goes on sale. And if the guys at Backblaze know what they're talking about (and they should) odds are it'll be nice and reliable over the long haul.

awesome hdd for the price, programs and games seem to launch very quick compared to other hdd i've used in the past. currently using it as a secondary storage.

Experience: 2 Years
-$99 (if you get this on sale) Great price point per TB
-Runs quiet and works with RAID (Adapter 31205)
-RMA process is painless, however long turnaround time
-Runs fairly hot (in my RAID array)
I have a mix of these drives (as well as a 5TB version) in my Gaming PC and HTPC. All the drives are running on a dedicated RAID card + Stablebit (HTPC).
Works very well and i only had to RMA one out of 6 drives. The RMA is painless, however word of advice:
You can ship out your bad drive here in Canada (Miss, ON actually) but the authorized centre will ship out your drive once they accumulate enough to have it ship to Toshiba US. Once its there in Toshiba US, it's about 10 business days turnaround and Toshiba US will send you a replacement drive. YMMV, but with my experience it took almost 2 months to ship out a bad drive and get a replacement.
It may help if you can ship directly to Toshiba US instead, rather than getting it shipped in Canada instead.
As well, i didn't get charged with duties or taxes with my RMA. But again, YMMV.

Fairly priced, quite fast.
Had 2 die in a row after a few months.
So, I had one of these last fall die on me. No big deal, it happens. RMA was painless and I have no complaints there. However, the new drive, (Which originally worked well.) is already failing with only a minor amount of use. It's basically been a warm spare in my server.

I'm not too impressed and hope 3rd time's the charm, but doubt I'll buy another and stick to WD Reds in the future.

So far so good 4 months in. I use them as secondary storage drives. I think these are Hitachi hard drives which is good since they are kind of known to be reliable.

Experience: 3 Months

Large capacity
Decently fast
Good price
None so far
Using it as a secondary drive. It is decently fast and operates quietly. Capacity works out to 2.7TB.

Bon prix à 99.99$
Disque fiable selon la majorité des reviews.
Bonne capacité.
Chauffe beaucoup moins que les disques de 4TB.
Pas bruyant.
Garantie de deux ans seulement maintenant.
J'ai acheté 5 disques comme celui-ci pour utilisation avec entre autre un boitier Synology DS213J. Après les avoir vérifier à 100% avec l'application Data Life Diagnostic (écriture de zéros sur toute la surface + test SMART version Longue) aucun défaut n'a été détecté sur aucun de ces disques. Le prix à 100$ en solde est très bien mais trop rare. Je suis confiant sur la durabilité de ces disques puisque j'en possède plusieurs de ce modèle en version 2TB depuis deux ans.

Experience: 1 Days

Plug and play!
Non so far!
Got it on sale and it worked out of the box.

Comment: Toshiba' DT01ACA300 HDD is less than $0.03/GB for 3TB of premium mechanical storage! This is an excellent storage add-on when capacity is needed at a very low cost!

Comment: "This is one fast drive! It runs about 20MB/sec faster than the Hitachi 4TB 7K4000, which is around 12% faster. As hard drives go, that’s a very significant advance in less than a year..."
