Ok.. so the drive itself performs fine as you would expect. HOWEVER! I have used (tried to use) this drive in 3 different PC cases.

The drive vibrates like crazy and is extremely loud when in any of the 3 mentioned cases due to this. My other Seagate drives are 100% silent (as silent as can be expected for a HD).

The only way I can use this is in a seperate enclosure for backup purposes. To have this running in an actual build is a no go for me. Far too loud due to the vibrations it causes!

Died after 15 months

Died very quickly, rapidly increasing surface errors then simply could not be read. One usually gets chance to copy off the data but not with this drive. Luckily it was already backed up elsewhere. Difficult to assess reliability where (n)=1 so the important thing will be how well the warranty claim is handled. I gave it 2 stars because at least I got 15 months out of it, but it was definitly not used hard, it never even got beyond 20% full and only used for storage.


Great price and fast, but...

There's no question that this drive is very good value for money, and it's fast too, but it hums like nothing else! Maybe I've been unlucky, maybe it's the particular size or design of my desk that amplifies the noise, but the two WD Caviar Blues I have spin almost totally silently while this drive hums away noisily next to them.

4 stars for performance and price, but doesn't get 5 stars because of the irritating humming noise.


Great for the price

Bought one of these when it was a little cheaper but is still excellent value for money. The drive is fast and quiet. This is the first Toshiba drive I have owned but so far had no issues. Great service from Overclockers as usual :)
