“I have had this product for about four months now, and it is getting close to full. I will say that the drive is fast, quite reliable, and I am very happy with it. I purchased the retail box as it comes with the manufacturer’s warranty, just to be secure. However, it seems to be a remarkable drive.

My system boots very quickly and has no difficulty in reading and playing high definition videos and it is quiet. According to the specifications, this is power friendly, which is exactly what I need for a Home Theater Machine. I highly recommended this product.” – Richard Brookes

“I have been employed in the communications field as an engineer, technician and as Director of Operations & Technology for more than 30 years. Although retired, I still build systems for family, my friends and myself.

I am quite happy with the operational features of the Toshiba Hard Drive. It is extremely quiet, runs cool even under heavy use, it serves A/V files to 4 networked Multimedia computers along with my XBox 360 and like all the SATA drives, it had a very simple and easy to follow the installation process.” – Virgil Scott

“This new Toshiba 5TB Internal Hard Drive is absolutely great. I am very happy with it, so much so that I have ordered another one similar to it. The transfer speed of this drive is excellent. I just transferred 950 GB worth of data onto it, and it was very fast and extremely quiet during the transfer.

The drive temperature remained almost normal. It would be quite hard to beat this particular Toshiba Hard Drive for the features it offers compared to others in the same category.” – Bob Smith
