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.

Cheap and fast
This is an inexpensive but reliable hard drive. It is reasonably fast.

Experience: 1 Months
 Verified Owner
excellent price, great performance, relatively cool and quiet
32mb cache
I installed this in a relatively noisy case (or at least it was really noisy when I had both seagate and an older wd blue (EALX) and so far, I can hardly hear this drive during seek and read operations. I haven't changed anything other than the drive so I'm happy with this development. It seems fast enough as a secondary storage drive (using an SSD at OS and boot drive). I don't think the 32mb of cache will make much of a difference for basic file storage.

This is one of the best price to performance ratio for current drives. If I'm in the market for a magnetic platter-based hard drive, then I would normally look at Western Digital, followed by Toshiba. I have yet to experience any sort of catastrophic failure with both these brands as opposed to Seagates (and I'm talking, almost 100 drives in both personal systems and those I've built for friends). Despite my good experience with WD, their prices are always the highest among the three. Toshiba has been my go-to drive for basic and budget builds and I have yet to be disappointed.

Warranty not directly with toshiba contrary to WD and Seagate.
Bought this as a secondary drive for a gaming computer with a primary SSD. Works great. Pretty silent so far.

Experience: 5 Months
Good brand, good price.
Good for a home office or small office build.

Experience: 2 Years
Good Capacity VS proce
Good performance
This HDD was put in a budget gaming rig. Since the HDD is good, was not much of a bottleneck

Experience: 2 Weeks

Good quality, compatible with QNAP NAS I bought
None so far
Good quality for the price!

Experience: 4 Months
 Verified Owner
For the price, none!
This is an inexpensive drive, but that doesn't mean it's more likely to fail, or be noisy, or slower than comparable 1TB drives. It's meant to be a regular use drive and I think for the price it should serve well.

Price, Speed, Reliability (so far)
These are sometimes the cheapest 1tb option on here. I've used a few in the past, and they seem to be quite good. Fairly fast, reliable, haven't had one die on me yet.

Experience: 5 Years

Best bang for the buck vs other competitors. Best reliability
None known
I use about 50-100 hard drives a year and I have settled on Toshiba drives. To date (500 drives) I have not had a single one fail after as much as 5 years ownership. I have to directly warranty any system I sell and I have never had to replace a hard drive yet. By comparison I have had to replace as much as 25% of all the seagates I have used. WD are also good drives but more expensive. I think most people that buy from NCIX are use to seagates and WD and have just not used Toshiba/Hitachi drives so they avoid them. I do not believe they are any faster, or slower than comparable WD/Seagate drives so the benefit to me is the reliability of them. I know at some point I will get a bad one. No company of any type is 100% in it's manufacturing. I am disappointed in reviews that give a product 1 star if they are the one that happens to fail. In that case if the replacement was fast and free I usually give it a 3 start, average rating. How can you really know how the HD performed if you never tried it. State the failure and state that you are unsure of how it performed. I would highly recommend these drives in any size.
