Serial ATA, or SATA, is a relatively new storage technology that is now being adopted in computers. It is the successor to Parallel ATA. SATA allows for faster transfers between the hard disk and the system, uses thinner cables and is easier to physically install

Reviews
3TB Toshiba DT01ACA300 3.5" SATA III Hard Drive 6Gb/s, 7200rpm, 64MB Cache 8ms OEM NCQ is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Drives work but only had a few weeks The drives work OK as expected. 'Quick format' not so good (Windows) and some 'bad files' detected when trying to read some copied-over files. A full format worked OK and 2/3rds of the disks filled with copied files and no errors on opening a large number of them. Full formatting takes a long time in Windows but worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have had this drive for a few weeks It was cheap, had lots of space, and I can say that after four weeks or so, I haven't had any issues with it. If that gives you anything to go by.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value and gets the job done I bought 6 of these for my NAS, and fully tested them with smartctl and badblocks (4 passes) before installation. I didn't find a single error on any of the 6 drives. Excellent quality! They've been in my NAS for several weeks now and have been getting regularly hammered with multi-TB transfers. Again no problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value storage drive I bought a couple of these to replace some aging Seagate storage drives on a desktop machine. I was not expecting much considering their price point and after reading some bleak reviews. I've got 1000+ hours on both drives and they're running great in a machine that's on pretty much 24/7. Quiet in operation with no obvious vibration and they run cooler by a few degrees than any of my other 7200 drives. They're not going to win any records for data transfer speeds, but if you're looking for cheap bulk storage, they're a good budget option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good drives, Great value. Considering other drives with identical capacity are much more costly, These Toshiba drives represent great VFM. Not likely to replace SSD drives for fast boot, But more than adequate for all other purposes.

Questions & Answers

is this drive backward compatible with a SATA II - 3Gbs controller ?

Will this work with Windows XP?

XP has a 2.2TB limit, but some manufacturers provide their own XP drivers for drives above this (like Hitachi). Is there any software available that will enable XP to see the full 3TB of this drive? I have asked Toshiba, but as this is an OEM drive, I've been directed back to Scan for support. Thanks,
Asked by: Johm
I do not think XP will recognise the disk, or if it does it will be at the limit so you would not get the full 3TB storage and thus a waste of money. Even in Windows 7 and later, it has to be mounted using an alternative (GUID) to the usual system to get the full 3TB recognised at the start. Then you can format it and/or partition it. I doubt partitioning of the disk with third party software would work either - XP would still not recognise the volumes over its internal limit. GUID is not supported by XP. You could contact Paragon and see if they can help as I think they may have a workaround bit of software that will tinker with XP so the disk can be partitioned, formatted and recognised by XP but check with them before buying disks over the XP limit!
