Rated 1 out of 5 by Dan31 I'll be avoiding Toshiba for now.
Scan service was excellent, but the drive i received kept throwing up SMART errors and was making a fairly loud click noise every 2-3 seconds. I had previously ordered a couple of 1TB Toshiba drives from one of Scan's competitors and they also failed within a day or so.... I thought this couldn't possibly happen a third time with a different model from Toshiba, but it did! Other drives i'm using from Seagate and Hitachi are still running fine (the Hitachi drive is nearly 3 years old now).
I can't recommend Toshiba for HDD's based on my own personal experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike333 Extremely happy
I am extremely happy with my new computer, even more so that I built a far more powerful computer for the sale cost of my old pc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fergus Cheap backup
I got this with a 256Gb SSD to back files up on and discovered it's very fast, except in boot times there isn't much difference between this and my £120 SSD! MIght get another and RAID them...

Rated 5 out of 5 by ColinP Fast, good value, a little noisier than some others
Two of these were purchased and have been running well in a NAS drive from day one. In the context in which I am using them I have no complaints and would buy the same drives again if I needed to add capacity. They can be a little noisier than some other drives, but in no way intrusive.
All that with the excellent service from Scan, as always.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RichH A commodity product. Perfect.
A simple disc drive from a well know manufacturer. In use for a couple of weeks now. The drive arrives in an ESD plastic bag with no screws or cables etc. Excellent Scan packaging: Well secured in a lot of bubble-wrap and cardboard outer. I bought this simply because it was the cheapest 2TB drive available from Scan.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Perun Dead in under 4 hours. Avoid like a plague
This hard drive has a great price and comes with fairly reasonable specs. The catch is - the quality of it is so poor that you should avoid it at all costs.
I purchased on of these hard drives, installed it ok, initialised and started copying partitions from my existing one. 3 hours 51 minutes later - the drive disappears from the system. BIOS sees it only sporadically, it makes horrid clicking noise and doesn't work in any of the two SATA controllers. Windows/Linux neither can see it.
In a way, I am glad it failed before I deleted the data from the old drive. I would say - don't trust this drive with anything. Internet is full of people who have these DOA or failing within a few days or weeks.
There are alternative drives for just a few pounds more. Ask yourselves - how important is your data. Check newegg reviews for this family of drives and you will see that my issue is far from a one-off.
