Customer Reviews
Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 33 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. 16 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. 09 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. 11 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to order. Easy to install. Another good drive for my gaming rig.. No problem with the installation 12 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good cheap drive Quick, quiet, cheap, reliable. Pretty much sums it up. 10 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good Easy to installi , quiet, and simple to set up the hard dives appear to be very good in terms of build quality - only time will tell how they perform. 18 December 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Awful Terrible drive Lasted about 3 months All drives have potential to be awful this one was Would never buy another drive from Toshiba Had all my data backed up or it would have been worse 26 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good item, useful as data storage and performance use Item arrived on time and well packaged. The HDD is quite fast. No problems so far with reliability. 27 July 2015

Answer: 
Yes, depends on how old the controller is because it may be the controller that restricts the recognition of the full capacity, not SATA II standard.

Answer: 
Yes is the short answer.

The HDD SATA 2(3GBs)/3(6GBs) technology, technically doesn't matter, because nothing yet can get close to the 3GBs that the SATA2 pipeline allows.

Only unless there is a problem with the motherboards chipset or drivers would there be an issue because the speed would be negotiated by the controller automatically.

Scan also offers an excellent returns/exchange service should something be an issue.

Answer: 
Yes, SATA 6Gbps is fully backwards compatible so will run just fine on a SATA 3Gbps controller. That hard drive won't even get close to needing SATA 6Gbps anyway, they only label it as that to sell it.

Answer: 
All SATA III devices are backward compatible with SATA II interfaces, they will just run at SATA II speeds.

Make sure your Operating system & BIOS will allow you to make full use of a 3Tb drive though

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,

Answer: 
Technically yes.
I don't think Toshiba will do compatibility drivers due to XP being decommissioned.

XP has a 2TB limitation due to the old Master Boot Record (MBR) type of file system ( *2.19TB per volume) but can easily be circumvented by a partition.
Eg: 2x1.5TB partitions, if you were to use this drive.
The older style MBR partition (I think XP uses this) only supports 2.19TB, due to the sector size limitation of 512.

If you really must use a 3 TB HDD full volume on XP, then pick a manufacturer that you KNOW supports XP.

Answer: 
The only way I found out how to get the whole drive to show up in XP was to partition the drive, have a 2tb and a 1tb, a bit of a pain I know but its the only way I did it, that was a while back but there could be some software out there that can do it, do a search on the net, other than that, win7 is the next option.
