Be advised: this hard drive uses the older 512b disk sector format
Unlike most other modern nas disks of this capacity that use 4kib sectors (aka "advanced format"), toshiba looked to the 1980s for inspiration and elected to use 512b sectors for this newly released disk.So if you use this in a zfs pool or other raid setup, you'll be limited to using only disks with 512 byte physical sectors. Otherwise, if you use this with any other proper nas disks, you will have to configure your raid to use 512b sectors - resulting in significant performance penalties (in my testing, the array took an avg 13% hit to write speeds) as the 4kib physical sector disks are forced to emulate 512b logical sectors (assuming they aren't "4k native" and can even do the emulation). And since toshiba provides almost no technical documentation, either online or with the product, there was no way to find this out without first buying the hard drive and querying the s.M.A.R.T. Data myself.On the plus side, its performance as a single disk is pretty good (see attached blackmagic benchmarks) and it can often be found for much cheaper than other competing nas disks of this caliber (7200rpm, 128mb cache). And now i know why.If you're just looking for affordable disks with advertised high reliability backed by a 3 year warranty (to put in your home entertainment nas, for example) and don't care so much about these technical & performance points - or if you don't plan on using it in a raid with other modern disks, the n300 may suit you just fine.But if you want to maximize compatibility with other modern nas or enterprise disks and not compromise the performance of your array, look elsewhere.

4096 byte sectors and runs fine
Has 4096 byte physical sectors (unlike what some other reviewer said) and runs fine. It generates heat during reading and writing that would make it unsuitable for a small, non-fan enclosure (mine got to 53 degrees celsius, just 2 degrees below its maximum operating temperature). The only nas server i have used has lots of fans and its nas quality drives generate similar heat. If you are putting a drive like this in a dock, it's traditional to orient the dock so the drive sits vertically; on this drive i saw a 5 degrees c drop by moving my drive from horizontal to vertical.I have attached a picture proving it has 4096 byte sectors to disprove what some other reviewer wrote.

Warning - check your sector size if you plan to use them in raid 1
I imagine they might be good, but i can't tell be cause nowhere do they tell you what the sector size is.So, these did not match the hard drives already in my nas, so i could not connect them to my raid 1 setup.I suppose i will use them for another purpose. - bummer

It?€™s been few months and works great. -1 star because of its noise
Bought 2 of them to run my raid1 setup.It?€™s been few months and works great.-1 star because of its noise. It?€™s not too loud but can be anoying at night.
By Berend-Jan Van De Water
Good so far
Good so far. These drives are a bit on the louder side. I have four of the "x" version of these drives in a larger capacity in a different server box. Those drives are not near as loud as these "n" drives. These drives run cool and seems great so far. I don't really care about the noise as they seem to be working great.

No actual technical complaints. It's fast - the rebuild ...
No actual technical complaints. It's fast - the rebuild once the drive was added to my nas went smoothly (not really a function of the drive but just noting that the drive didn't have any issues). The only complaint is that the drive is loud compared to the other drives in the enclosure (seagate)

Awesome drive!
These are awesome drives, with the highest reliability. I buy only these for all my gaming pc builds.
By Domingo Caballero
I can't get it to work in my camera security ...
When i informed outletpc that the hard drive was broken or didn't work at my security system which i bought from outletpc, someone called me and tried to help. As soon it was confirmed that the hd was not working i got the prepaid label to ship it back. I mailed the item back and wait now for the refund.
