I don't know if this will be the same for all of them from all sellers but the two I bought had power-on times of 4 and 16 hours and both had G-sense errors, one read 3 and one read 15.

I've never had a G-sense error on one of my drives; this can only happen if the drive is badly jolted while the disks are spinning, therefore most common with badly treated tablets and laptops. Amazon did stop fulfilling them when I pointed this out but that didn't last long. I'm going to call them now to find out what's changed and report back.

The performance is otherwise quite good, that's why I chose the MQ04 over the MQ01 (as well as over other brands). The only similar drives that are slightly faster are the Seagates but they don't tend to last as long. The benchmark tests were a bit inconsistent so I've included the lowest and highest.

Now, they may still have gone on to serve me well for a long time, but you can't know for sure and it's beside the point. I expect clean SMART data results from a brand new drive.

I'm getting dreadful benchmark inconsistencies and massive dips. Then, when zeroing it out with DBAN - once to clean off the preinstalled OS, then again to send it back - it gives me write speeds of 130mb/s. Read speeds go down as low as less than 1mb/s in a caddy and a surface test showed speeds around 60mb/s inside a machine, which is just way too slow for contemporary use. The 128mb 'buffer' doesn't self-report, and the drive runs as if there also isn't one.

What on Earth are they up to down there in Italy? I've read all the Italian MQ04 & MQ01 reviews, and there are plenty of non-New drives (more MQ01's), some faulty. My MQ04 was 'New', according to Amazon, shipped from Italy, arrived with no anti-static pouch and, whilst no errors and 'satisfactory' SMART report for 'Like New', it was evidently removed from a new laptop, as it had an unused Windows installation for an Intel-based machine on it, recovery partition and all.

I've bought used 7200rpm-HGST/WDC drives that run faster, see some comparison images. They also run faster than a Seagate I got at the same time, which may have to go back as well - partly for similar, partly for other reasons. Maybe the whole SSHD-thing is more SHDD that it's made out to be, and then you need the spindle to do it's job at truly getting to 7200rpm for it to be worth fitting into a box.

Back to the MQ04: So run DBAN, start from scratch. But my benchmarks are so inconsistent, including crashes on surface testing because it sleeps asap all the time and takes up to a whole second to run up. One day it looks like a decent drive (from the before-AF-era, so nothing to write home about), then next day it looks as though its dead. No, it's not my caddy; I've used it since on old drives I have, partly for comparison, and they benchmark the same as they did when I first got them!

Writes fast, the drive appears error-free, reads dead slowly - the word funeral springs to mind - on the bench and in use, and is going back home. And what's the speed dip around 1%-10% about? That's where my pagefile normally goes.

AVOID! This is new enough, undamaged enough, even if not new. It performs roughly like the GYSN-generation of pre-AF drives by TOSHIBA that came with an 8Mb cache, of which I still keep some as backup drives, but which I'd not consider for daily use any longer. WDC Blue drives - which I now regret having sent back a few years ago as 'too slow' - totally outperforms this drive (I still have the old benchmarks in my collection), and it doesn't get more conventional they do. Data of an old 320Gb Hitachi is better.

This is where my loyalty to TOSHIBA-only drives ends. I used to swear by them, and maybe a more conventional one still does the job. (For those who are wondering, I'm not going into a long rant about security- & GDPR-compliancy-issues with (even software-)encrypted SSD's; of course they'd be faster.)

---

About the images (if Amazon keep the order I uploaded them in): The drive was already populated (screen shot & HD Pro INFO). Some of the benchmarks are hair-raisingly inconsistent, and the error scans the same.

The last six pictures, for comparison, a 2nd-hand drive, evidently run in a rotten caddy (marked as 'Like New' by Amazon), with Ultra DMA CRC errors galore (typical for cable problems or leakage current), and yet, benchmarks follow that consistently outperform both this, as well as a faster Seagate, drives - and this is a drive I have been using in the box I'm typing this on for I've forgotten how many months now. No blips & Error Scan / Speed Map is perfectly consistent with other HGST/WDC drives (32Mb buffer, 7200rpm). Guess I'll have to go searching for a couple now.

I'm sending this back. Maybe that's a mistake, but I'm not impressed with the benchmarks, and I ran 150Gb of generic media files (nothing personal), large and small, onto the drive and back again. Writes - admittedly in a caddy - at an average of 35Mb/s. I gave up noodling the stuff back, because I took too long. Sorry, I didn't even look at the read speeds any more. Defragmenting deliberately muddled data I also packed up because I had work to do.

Last, but not least, I expect a better discount for a used drive. £45 is very reasonable, when it works!
