To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These drives are loud. Decent price/size/performance ratio. But you'll know when data is being written to it. I have 3 of them to replace old Seagate 3TB drives, which I never heard spinning up/seeking. I can't find a tool on Toshiba's website to adjust acoustic levels, or they make it incredibly hard to find.
Compre este tambien y otro WD. De nada sirve que sea un poco rapido si cada vez que se hiberna o duerme la maquina porque te ausentaste unos minutos del equipo el disco se apague y tengas que reiniciar el equipo y hasta perder tus archivos ya que no lo ve el sistema operativo. Hay incluso muchos foros web donde aluden a este problema con discos toshiba. No es el cable sata, ni el puerto, ni los drivers, ni el bios, ni el motherboard, es toshiba. Nada como DW y Seagate, veré si puedo hacer efectiva la garantía, que lata.
Everything was fine however after a week of usage, I can reconfirm with other reviews on Amazon that this hard drive mysteriously disappears after a hard boot and reappears after restarting the computer. It is an annoying thing to do I have to do with this HD everyday and I am looking forward to buying another HD that's not Toshiba.
I thought Toshiba hard drives were good… At least they used to be. Not anymore… i have to keep disconnecting this drive and reconnecting it for it to work. Ran defeag, ran for any issues. All good. Junk… stay away…
