DEAL SHOULD BE EXPIRED BY NOW ANYWAY. THIS IS NOT A 5 YEAR WARRANTY AS LISTED BUT AN UNUSED PULLED DRIVE WITH 6 MONTH WARRANTY. Thanks, Relik, for that info.

Toshiba 2 TB 7200 RPM Enterprise 64 MB HD
Model MG03ACA200 <=== WRONG
SATA/600 in spite of page saying SATA/300
5 year warranty <=== WRONG
OEM packaging
Free shipping or store pickup while in stock

You must have or get a Friday's promo email code to get the $49 price.

Review: http://www.storagereview.com/tosh...mg03acax00

I don't know if this is considered a good drive, but for those who still use 2 TB as boot drives such as holdout XP users, $49 for 2 TB 7200 RPM with a 5 year warranty seems OK. My main worry would be that Frys.com packs it well being a bare drive in a bag. You can pick it up B&M instead if in stock.

It says 5 years on other sites like Storage Review that I linked to and Toshiba since it's an "enterprise" drive. If that does not apply if it's sold from certain dealers or OEM, I'd like to know myself.

Just brought one home from Fry's. Search by serial number on the Toshiba website returns "out of warranty" message. Returning it tomorrow!

That's lame of Fry's, but now that you mention it it's believable. What was the manufacture date (year) on this drive you bought? Was it greater than 5 years ago? I wouldn't be surprised if Fry's is selling some ancient drives they discovered somewhere in their warehouse.

Theoretically (AFAIK) manufacturers are supposed to honor the warranties from the purchase date from an authorized retailer, so even if it's out of warranty online it should still be OK if you keep your receipt and Fry's is authorized (I thought they were but I'm not sure). The online warranty is for people who don't have their receipts.

These would be good for making a backup / storage RAID out of. Get a couple and RAID-1 them.

Too bad I have no promo code and they won't ship them from online orders. Don't think I've ever seen a Fry's store in my area.

Placed an order for 2. The email says I have to pick it up by 9 tonight or the price may be subject to change? Wow. Giving me 6 hours when I was expecting to just pick it up tomorrow. It's evidently something to do with using a promo code. Thanks for the code by the way FlyinSqirrel.

Warranty says 5 year at Toshiba but they don't make it easy to find:

This drive was only introduced 5 years ago. I'm not sure you can trust that warranty checker when these are old stock, but brand new drives. Toshiba's site says 5 years from the purchase date so buyers should keep their receipt.

I'll report the manufacture date on my 2 drives when I pick them up later today.

Finally, there are a number of user benchmarks here : http://hdd.userbenchmark.com/Spee...MG03ACA200

The oldest one is 3 years ago. The performance looks decent, but longevity is what I want.
