I had a Hitachi drive that was very noisy, I returned it and went with Seagate, much quieter.
I would rather get a noisy one than a hot one, my Seagate 3TB and 4TB external can goes up to 63 C.
Don't know much about this Toshiba though, don't think it has a fan inside enclosure neither.

I bought this drive back when Best Buy was running that crazy $50 off $100 or more coupon. I think the base price at the time was $120 anyways, so this deal doesn't seem too great.

The drive seems to work okay and the speeds are fast enough for me. I do have one complaint. The drive won't be recognized by my router if I plug it into its USB port. That sucks because I had hoped to use it as a NAS. If anyone has been able to use this as a NAS, please let me know how. Right now I just have it hooked up to my desktop and map it as a network drive to other computers. But that means my desktop has to always be on.

I just picked up this drive from Office Depot.

They have it for $119.99 but OD has a 30% off in store coupon which brought my total down to $83.99 tax

$90.92 out the door in Texas.


Here's the coupon PDF...

I have the 1TB version and it's the worst hard drive I've ever had.

Does anyone know if the WD Live with streaming (newest one) will recognize a 3TB HD? I have a 1TB and it's full Frown

The cable died on the first month; the HD connector itself is not stable (a little movement of the HD, and it disconnects itself from the laptop/computer); it has constant connect/disconnect problem on Windows (Windows always says to "repair" the drive); it doesn't support Mac well; it is super slow compared to WD USB 3.0 external Harddrives. I got 60MB/S MAX with this HD, while my WD Passport gives me almost double then that.

The 7200 RPM Seagate External 3TB and 4TB are the best deals.

I get 200 mB/s constant from my 3TB used as internal (The sata to USB3 bridge is limited to 150mB/s). I get 170 mB/s constant from my 4TB used as internal (Obviously lower seek times than 5700/5900 rpm drives as well. The thermals aren't a problem in any case with a fan by the hard drive bays, which is basically all normal size cases.

I got mine on that BB deal, about $70 after coupon.
Plugged it into a USB port on my synology ds211j NAS. It appeared on the network as an external drive to the NAS. I backed up the contents of its 2 x 2tb raid config using synology's backup and restore program. The process was extremely slow due to the NAS usb 2.0 and the limited processor, etc, but eventually got the job done.

Much faster transferring data from the usb3.0 port of my laptop.

The Office Depot deal w/ coupon seems like a good deal.

Thanks, appreciate it.

Sounds like most of the issues are related to the enclosure itself - which isn't much of a concern for me since I'm considering these for the internal drives.

Not a good hard drive, avoid. nod
I have not researched this drive, and thus take my comment with a grain of salt. Almost a year ago, I bought a pair of Seagate 1.5 TB drives on a closeout from Office Depot for $30 apiece. According to the reviews, the drives had a horrible failure rate. I concluded the failures resulted from the housing, not the drives themselves. I popped the drives out of their housings, and placed them in a D-Link NAS. They have been running like champs 24/7 since. Perhaps the problems with the posted drive stem from the housing.

I have this drive and I haven't had a successful backup yet. I keep getting I/O errors causing the backups to fail after a few minutes. A disk scan shows no issues, and I'm trying a full reformat to see if that helps.
