HGST (formerly Hitachi) were acquired by Western Digital, who then later sold HGST and its manufacturing facilities to Toshiba. Modern Toshiba drives are basically all rebranded Hitachis. If the Toshiba DT01ACA300 has a serial beginning with HDKPC08 (I personally haven't seen one without that), it denotes that it is a rebranded Hitachi manufactured by Hitachi. In other words, DT01ACA300 = HDKPC08—well, basically, for simplicity's sake.
I think this is a pretty good price. I have two in a backup NAS, and they run quiet and cool. They perform really well, too. I lost my flash drive with my bench results before I loaded the drives up with everything, but here[madshrimps.be] are some results from someone else.
Also, alternatively, this hard drive is available from Micro Center[microcenter.com] (if you have one nearby) in bare packaging regularly at $120. That's where I got my two several months ago. Not a better price, but I haven't seen it change since I bought mine.
