Keep in mind, that in today's society people mostly complain when something goes wrong and usually don't take the time to review something that works well. In addition, people are dumb and leave negative reviews for things that arrive DOA, etc, which is not really a review of a product, as much as it is a review of the buyer's lack of intelligence. In general, if you're reading hard drive reviews, you're wasting your time.

I agree about people only commenting on things that go wrong and not giving credit for good things. Might not necessarely translate to the reliability of this particular drive, but certainly brand loyalty and what you've mentioned skew the truth!

Love Toshiba's warranty process. they basically give you back a prepaid card for "the price you paid for it at the time of purchase," not a refurb drive. Then, you can use it to buy a new drive.....

I've had one of these as my primary bulk data drive (completely backed up, of course) in my PC for about 3 years now and it's still going strong. Might pick up another at this price.

I bought two of these about two years ago. One died after about 1.5 years... Bought the retail version, which is supposed to have a three year warranty (according to Toshiba website and Newegg), however Toshiba support says it has only two years warranty...same model number as the OEM version. Pretty lame, but they're still working with me. Won't be buying Toshiba again most likely
