    Reliability of Toshiba drives.


    Hey, all.

    Basically, I want to know if you've had good experiences with Toshiba drives (particularly external ones). Have they been fast, reliable, delivered consistent performance? How are they in comparison to WD drives & other drive manufacturers? The drive in particular that I want to know about is TOSHIBA MQ04ABF100. This drive is part of a Silicon Power external HDD enclosure.

    :)

    Problem with my Toshiba external drive.

    Good, now use the Diskpart commands SELECT DISK, LIST PARTITION and LIST VOLUME to find out what's on each. Use these commands in this order and post a screenshot of the results.

    LIST DISK
    SELECT DISK 0
    LIST PARTITION
    SELECT DISK 1
    LIST PARTITION
    LIST VOLUME

    This is what I see on my system with a (Toshiba, as it happens) usb drive plugged in. This Toshiba is Disk 1 and has two partitions.

  3. Toshiba HDWD130XZSTA - a rebranded Hitachi drive?

    Been looking up reliability on HDDs and it seems like the general consensus is that Hitachi is currently the most reliable. And it seems like Toshiba was rebranding some Hitachi drives the past few years, namely the DT01ACA300 which was apparently a Hitachi HDS723030BLE640.

    Toshiba Hard Drive Test: How Do They Stack Up?

    I can't seem to find the DT01ACA300 in stock anywhere, but did find the Toshiba HDWD130XZSTA in stock. Looking at the pictures, the "DT01ACA300" number still appears on the drive itself:

    Is this drive a rebranded Hitachi? Seems to be priced decently and other 3TB drives don't seem to be very reliable.

    Toshiba Introduces New Canvio Basics Portable Hard Drives

    In an exceptional blend of data protection, portability and simplicity, Toshiba has unveiled the newest addition to its Canvio line of portable hard drive solutions – the Canvio Basics Portable Hard Drive family for the PC. Developed with ultimate usability in mind for the everyday consumer, the Canvio Basics requires only a single step to start saving and transporting important files: Plug it in.

    The Canvio Basics’ one plug ease-of-use is complemented by the drive’s stylish design, courtesy of a glossy black finish and soft, rounded edges. Despite its light weight and diminutive size, the Canvio Basics hits above its weight when it comes to keeping files safe. An Internal Shock Sensor, Ramp Loading Technology, and a three year Limited Warranty combine for added peace of mind whether going from the dorm to the lecture hall, the home office to the conference room, or wherever else the Canvio Basics is needed.

    Beyond its technical capabilities, the practicality of the Canvio Basics design is evident in the drive’s pocket-sized form factor, which not only makes it easy to carry, but also conforms to Toshiba’s environmental efforts to reduce the quantity of materials used in production. In addition, the Canvio Basics’ packaging is made from 100 percent recyclable materials.
