ORIGINAL REVIEW: I bought this during an Amazon sale for $135 CAD, which was unbeatable for a 6TB, 7200 RPM hard drive with 128MB cache. Be aware though, this hard drive only comes with TWO YEARS OF WARRANTY. A Seagate Barracuda drive has five years warranty for comparison. Also, Toshiba does not list the MTBF hour rating for this drive. Consumers have no idea how many hours this hard drive is rated to operate at. Other drive manufacturers state this as part of the product's specifications. This drive gets 2 out of 5 stars for weak two year warranty. Buy this drive when on sale, asking yourself, if this drive fails in two years, was the cost to buy it cheaper than a similar drive with a 3/4/5 year warranty? At $135 CAD plus tax, it was the better buy over the five year warranty Seagate 6TB drive.
J'aurais tellement voulu le retourner. Toutefois on ne constate sa lenteur qu'un coup qu'il est plein et le remplir m'a pris un mois car c'était des trucs spécialisés venant du web.
Je suis pris avec et j'ai payé le gros prix.
I will continue to follow-up and I have requested Amazon's support to help get this resolved.
My only regret is that I bought 4 more Toshiba 8TB drives before this situation had started, and worrying this might happen again in a few months.
- Fast, can sustain up to 210MB/s transfer speeds.
- Was great value for the money on the Amazon Prime sale
- Lot's of storage space
- Short 2 Year Warranty, combined with the noise makes me question it's longevity

After an hour of use the drive started making a grinding noise. The drive no longer appeared in File Explorer or Disk management.
Amazon's return policy is disappointing to put it mildly. I don't drive, so I've got to walk two miles to a UPS pick up point or return at my own cost.
