I've had my eye on the X300 drives for a while now. Performance is good but I hesitate to buy because of the reports of this being a noisy drive.

For X300 owners, do you consider the drive to be too loud?

I read a thread here at SD that said one of the drives had a defect that made it noisy. Also, I have two Toshiba DT01ACA300 aka Hitachi HDS723030BLE640 3Tb 7200rpm Hard Drives, and four Toshiba P300 3TB drives and none of them are noisy. Maybe a bad bearing?

I have a DT01ACA300 and a P300 in Rosewill RX-358 U3C cases right next to me and they're not anything like my hot running, noisy, Hitachi server drive. But 7200 RPM drives do make a little more noise than a 5400 or even a 5900, but I don't hear head grinding or ticking, clicking sounds.

The short answer about the X300 is I don't have one, yet, but I don't see any reason it would be considerably louder than any other 7200 RPM drive. I've had very good luck with Toshiba drives all the way back to when the DT01ACA300 3TB said TOSHIBA and had Hitachi in small print on the label. It ID's as a Hitachi HDS723030BLE640.

You can, but I wouldn't. Stick with something designed to be ran in a NAS environment.

This would work as an excellent desktop workstation drive, either primary or secondary where theres a lot of large files you need to use locally and not over a network or just need to loaf your hard drive up.

Serious gaming, video editing, etc.

good price for 7200 rpm for desktop. Cheaper per Tb than the 6 Tb Seagate I recently bought.
For NAS, Toshiba sells the N300 drive.

If I am gaming or watching something then I don't notice it. If I'm just sitting there and the drive is grinding away at something it can be annoying.

Agreed. I have the 5TB 7200RPM version of this and they definitely run hotter than a 5400RPM drive. Unless you have some active cooling for them I wouldn't.

I would say get an SSD, but you don't get 8TB SSDs without dropping a thousand bucks (at least). Getting one of these and setting up a cached partition will give you all the storage and speed you, (or even your grandkids) would ever need
Can only fit 54 copies of FFXV...
