Why isn't this deal getting as much attention as the Seagate 3TB external from the other day? Does this drive suck?

No, it does not suck. And 3 year warranty on this is very, very nice.

Well for starters it's 5 dollars more for an additional terabyte of space.

Toshiba's internals are the former Hitachi/HGST drives. They acquired the tooling as part of the WD merger last year.

Anyway, I think this may be what's inside - but I'm not sure:

(If that's the case, it's the same drive that was on sale this past weekend for $130)

Regarding the reviews, note that quite a few seem to be people not understanding 4K drives and subsequently having issues using them on older systems.

If you're also unfamiliar, I suggest you read up on them:

If you read the reviews, quite a few people are mentioning DEAD drives.

"Died after about 3-4 weeks."

"DOA"

"the drive died after 2 weeks later."

On and on and on.

I found this from an older post:
Quote from WilliamF2034 View Post :
I just bought one from Microcenter - 3Tb - for $129.99. Its a Hitachi. The case wasn't too bad to open, I just inserted a pocket knife at the seam and worked it around. It did break off a couple of tabs which will probably void the warranty, but hopefully it should work anyway.

Hitachi

I wonder what the warranty is on the internal drive itself?

I'm in the market for a 2TB+ external but all the reviews about poor reliability scare me a bit. I think I'll keep waiting.
