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 analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Excellent internal SATA HDD; lives up to the Toshiba brand. Currently, 8TB seems to sit at a 'sweet spot' in pricing. Easy to setup in Windows 10.
I can't say I was happy about the way Amazon US sent the hard drive, however. They literally slapped an address sticker on the hard drive's box and sent that. I know the packaging for hard drives is robust and contains sealed air to protect the contents, so no risk of damage to the product, but from a security point of view, it is plain to everybody that the item being sent is a valuable piece of electronic hardware! I would have much preferred that the item were sent in a plain padded parcel.
I ran speed checks on this drive and it was considerably faster than the Seagate 2TB it replaces. The Seagate was getting full but was still working fine. This drive is slightly noisier though not noticeable inside the PC case. Windows 10 recognised it and everything is so far so good. Very happy with the drive and price.
These drives were at the right price and I have not had any problems with any Toshiba drives. The one problem is with the courier, he has dropped both my deliveries 1200mm onto concrete and takes off. No damage as yet.
A very good product, being both quiet and fast. Also this product is competitively priced at AUD$24.82 per Terra Byte (delivered), which also helped influence the decision to purchase The only downside was a late delivery on the product, arriving almost one week after the expected delivery date
My drive failed after I had transfered 12TB of data to it. It appears to be something wrong with the power as it occasionally works for 30 seconds so I can see the data is still there. Sent drive off to a data recovery expert.
So far so good. Formatted with GPT so the computer / win10 could see beyond the 2TB limit. The drive installed quickly and easily, up and running in less than 5 minutes. Not sure why people are saying these drives are noisy, I haven't heard a peep from my drive since I began using it almost a week ago. Great to have such a large drive when upgrading from a 2TB. Definitely recommended for the price. I really hope these drives are durable and last many years.
El disco a sido enviado desde un almacén de (Amazon) en inglaterra. Un disco duro valorado en 400€ en un simple sobre de papel de burbujas, sin caja original ni nada que se le parezca. Obviamente el disco duro no lo reconoce ningun pc y ademas si lo mueves un poco se escuchan sus piezas rotas moverse por dentro del hdd. Segunda vez que me haceis lo mismo.
