Huge amount of storage on one 3.5 inch hard drive
Who gets excited by new computer components??? This gal does! I love that i have 8tb to store games, pictures, computer back ups and more. 8tb is a huge amount of storage space. I have a holder that i just plug into my usb port on my pc and i can swap back and forth. I may end up replacing the smaller drive on the xbox one with this one, i haven't decided yet. Toshiba makes a good hard drive. It used to be you didn't want to get a larger hard drive past a definite amount of gigabytes because they ran slower. Not anymore. Toshiba has 128mb data buffer which allows for fast reading and performance. My husband has always said i was a man in another life due to my having to have the fastest and most up to date computers. Trust me, his desktop is a regular ol' desktop that i gave him last year, but it is far better than what he had and does much more. I, on the other hand, have a gaming computer, with gaming keyboard and mouse. So yeah, i deserve this 8tb drive

Obviously added a nice bit of space
I threw this drive in my nas and a few hours later i was ready to go. Obviously added a nice bit of space. Hasn't impacted any read/write speeds. Given that it's a drive for nas applications, presuming i won't have any issues for a few years, but hard to say that now. As it stands now, it's a solid component of my nas.

Incredibly fast and massive capacity
The toshiba n300 drive is a fast drive. Normally used for network backups, i'm using it for backing up my pc. I ran some speed tests on it(samsung magician which came with my samsung evo 840 1 tb ssd drive) and i am getting 132 mb/s sequential read ,129 mb/s sequential writes, random read 6007 (iops) and random write of 1639 (iops). Compared to my fasted 5200 rpm seagate barracuda which gets 82 mb/s sequential read and 88 mb/s sequential writes.Note: attached are crystalmark tests.Now don't be mislead into believing this is anywhere close to the speed of an ssd drive which can sequential read at 999 mb/s and sequentially write at 498 mb/s. Of course, you can't get 8 tb of storage on one ssd drive (or it would be massively expensive).Toshiba gives a 3 year warranty on this drive and claims it is more reliable than? Not sure, but i can say that the drive does not get particularly warm (i would say 115-120 degrees f. During a long backup) which might be an indicator of reliability.Recommended for anyone doing hd video editing who would be able to utilize the size and speed of this drive or anyone who needs fast and large backups.
By Deborah Rivera
Reliable and amazing! Definitely recommend.
As described this is a total work horse. 8tb is amazingly fast and large... You could use it for gaming but i am using it for every day use. Works as described, install rather easy. Reliable and amazing! Definitely recommend.

Amazing
Having gone from tape drives to 8" floppy drives, to 5 1/4" drive to the omg 10 mb hard drive, 3.5" floppies, bernoulli drives and an assortment of hard drive formats and sizes, i am simply in awe of a single 8 tb hard drive. I have 6 tb of storage among my boxes and i have just more than doubled my storage with the addition of one drive. The drive formatted easily and i installed it in a usb 3.0 enclosure and am right now doing a system image. This will add a new dimension to my backups.

Great for soho applications
I use my nas for everything. With that, storage has been a real pain for me. One of the problems that i found is that you trade reliability for storage or reliability for speed. Toshiba has not traded anything to achieve the capacity of these drives. They are reliable and quite speedy.The drives are meant to be run 24/7, which most consumer drives are not designed that way. With that, the firmware of the drives has some data right algorithms so that your data can stay safe. You can be rest assured that these drives should handle most if not all home and small office uses. With a rated 180tb/year workload!One of my favorite things about these drives is that it comes with a 3-year warranty, unlike consumer drives that have a 2 year warranty!If you have a small nas unit i definitely recommend these drives. Performance isn't break neck, but the point is that they are reliable!Personally, i am able to stream my 1080p (high bit rate) movies from these drives without a single problem! Transferring speeds up to 25 mb/s (this is a limitation of my nas not necessarily the drives themselves). I am quite happy with them and their capacities.

Toshiba hard drive provides lots of storage
I am very impressed with the toshiba internal hard drive. I had to get a friend to hook it up to my computer, but it works great and offers a lot of storage. The toshiba name is a brand that i trust. I highly recommend the toshiba 3.5?€ internal hard drive.
By Brage Yttervik
All the storage needed
This has amazing storage capacity. At 8 tb's, it is enough to fit all my apps and film clips. The drive is bare, which means it will need to be formatted. Most computers should walk you through this. I had no problem setting it up, as i was replacing a much smaller drive. I am using this as a backup which saves me some desk space from using an external drive. Highly recommend!

Quiet and has plenty of space for my needs.
The problem with reviewing a hard drive is the most important aspect is how long it lasts and how reliable is it. Since this toshiba n300, 8tb drive has only been installed for a month, i can't comment on that. I have had very good luck and longevity with older toshiba drives. Since this one is designed to be installed in a nas setup i have a lot of confidence it will provide many years of reliable service.What i can report is that it is quiet. That's important to me because it is installed in a noise sensitive location and it runs 24/7. I can't even hear it. The other is heat. I have it installed in a server case with fans running on low and it is well within operating norms. It is barely warm to the touch.I can't give much data on speed since my server/network is more of a bottleneck than this drive. It easily outpaces my system. I'll just go with toshiba's specs for transfer rates. The 8tb should be more than adequate for many years. It is nice that it has a 3 year warranty.

Good nas drive; can work in usb enclosure with some effort
A nas is a great way to add storage for the whole network where everything can be reached from any system connected. It is not as simple as a usb mass storage device like a thumb drive, of course, but it addresses a completely different issue. So far, this drive has proven to be a good one, though its reliability remains to be demonstrated over the long haul.I have the 8tb drive, and it is great for dumping huge numbers of videos, music, documents and other media needed across a small network. It is fairly fast too, so streaming video from the nas to any given device on the network is reasonably smooth as long as the network can handle the bandwidth (keep this detail in mind if you are wanting to stream video over a slower wireless network - the lag isn?€™t necessarily the drive?€™s fault). The drive is very quiet, though not silent, and so far seems to stay acceptably cool.I did learn that it does not work all that well in a usb drive enclosure right out of the packaging. I have an enclosure that is capable of handling drives up to 8tb so i decided to try an experiment with the drive when it first arrived. I put it in the enclosure and connected it to my windows 10 laptop. The system saw the device, and it even saw the drive and recognized the model and serial number, but it was unable to access the drive or even format it. I had more success with my linux system which recognized the drive and was able to access the partition table and display drive parameters. I did not repartition the drive or make a file system for my experiment though i believe it would have worked.Time will tell if this drive will be reliable over the long haul. Based on my experience so far, it has worked out well and i have had no issues. It?€™s the largest drive i have worked with and can handle a lot of data. If you need wide open spaces for your network storage solution (or you are willing to fiddle with it to get it working as a usb solution) this is a good choice.
