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.

Experience: 3 Months
 Verified Owner
Cheap (bought in onsale)
Fast shipping
fast and quiet
none so far
Got this one on sale for $99 and free shipping to expand my storage. It's working great so far. Just bought another one to replace a seagate 2tb that seems to have died.

Experience: 3 Days
 Verified Owner
It's a fairly big hard drive- external case for Time Machine. Not a Seagate.
None so far
Backblaze's drive reliability tests steered me away from any Seagate drive, so this was an economical option when on sale.

Experience: 3 Days
 Verified Owner
-Fast shipping, received within 3 days of ordering
-Not DOA (always nice)
-Pretty cheap when on sale
-None so far
-Will continue to evaluate this HDD as time goes by as this is the first I buy from Toshiba. I'm hoping Toshiba makes better HDD's than WD, as theirs seem to fail within 2-3 years regularly. Hoping to get at least 5 from this one!

Experience: 23 Months
Was fine while it ran. Was using it as a backup drive for my NAS
It's a little funny how this failed just outside of the warranty period by 3 days from the manufacturers warranty.
This thing ran really hot, I just pulled it out of my NAS and it was hotter than it should of been. Gunna see if I can still RMA it by providing proof of purchase.

Experience: 2 Years
quiet, fast
Had them running for 2 years and had no problems. Love these drives. Own 4 and never had an issue. Great value.

Experience: 3 Weeks
 Verified Owner
Fast, reliable
Slightly louder than my previous hard drive
Overall an excellent drive, I use it for backups so the 3 tb is really useful.

Experience: 1 Months
 Verified Owner
Fast and quiet
No issues. So far a good 3TB drive.

Experience: 1 Days
 Verified Owner
Dead at arrival
Cheap price but don't work and do a weird song at arrival. Its maybe an exeption but in any case, NCIX RMA do good job.

Experience: 10 Days
 Verified Owner
Price, 7200 rpm
Only one year warranty
Works great so far, got it onsale for $107. Good price for 3 TB hdd. Using it to store media. Some people have reported doa drives but mine has been fine so far.

Experience: 4 Years
 Verified Owner
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

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..."
