Experience: 4 Months

Used for storage. Verified OwnerVerified Owner


Price when on sale.
Buy to replace Failed 3TB Seagate drive. After seeing other reviews, decided to buy over Seagate again and replace failing drives. Put in an enclosure, so only time will tell, but so far so good.

Experience: 4 Months

Excellent value for storage Verified OwnerVerified Owner


7200RPM for faster speed
No issue with performance so far
Low price on sale
Great value, no dead drives so far. Would recommend in a heartbeat

Experience: 3 Days

Quiet, fast Verified OwnerVerified Owner


- Fast, around 70MB/s
- Quiet
- None, really.
It's an average HDD, I use it as my Steam drive and it works well.

Experience: 2 Days

Nothing Special Verified OwnerVerified Owner


Priced accordingly.
It has strange dips all the way down to triple digit KB/s.

Regularly fluctuates from 20ish MB/s to 90ish MB/s with large ie 10GB / 750ish GB writes.
I wouldn't say it's good or bad but would say it's mediocre.

I prefer the Seagate 3TB m001 and 4TB m000 over the Toshiba 3TB.

I don't recommend it and I won't buy any more Toshiba.

Experience: 2 Months

Great Drive Great Price


None yet
I have had a number of WD and SG drives fail but my old Hitachi now Toshiba's have been solid , some even with many hours on them. For spinning storage I am sticking with Toshiba.

Experience: 4 Days

It works! Verified OwnerVerified Owner


Good Price
Transfer rates were good from my dying HDD
Well, I didn't think to order screws to mount it.. order some of those too.

Experience: 1 Days

Good Price for 3TB


Not the fastest drive.
This drive has a good price to storage size ratio.
A good choice for a storage or backup drive where size matters more than speed.

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..."
