better value yes, but this is a usb powered 2.5" drive & enclosure and that is a mains powered 3.5" drive & enclosure, so they arent really that comparable.


£15/Tb is my new buy in, this is over £19. The deal for the 8Tb yesterday was the one to go for.


In normal days, the price is 74-78. Suddenly yesterday the price jump to 109. And with the discount it would be 78 also. Hummmm


(lol) (lol) (lol)


There's a 20% off code for certain outlets on ebay at the moment, so there's bound to be a number of good deals.

Thanks for telling. Additional cost, maybe better value to buy smaller ones without the need for cooling system. I was weary of these high tb hard drives, maybe wait a bit longer it to stable. Also 10% of it, can never be use. they should market it as 10tb less 10% ie 9tb :)


How reliable are these? Tempted for backup.


Yes they get very hot. I only run them to back up data then they're off most of the time.

so looks like intel 660p maintain speeds around 500MB, why people always say it drops to 50MB?


Thanks for taking the time to post that.Appreciated.


Speed of any disk is relative to how it is being used, copying small files will be a lot quicker than large files. I copied 4 files around 14GB total size and these are the speeds, remember this is only one example. All disks had plenty of room for the files. 1 from SSD to USB stick (Sandisk Ulta) 2 from Intel 660p to Crucial MX500 3 from SSD to intel 660p NVMe M.2


Thanks for feedback.Appreciated.


It is slow for an NVMe drive, but faster than any SATA drive and faster than the Crucial here. "Slow" is relative. Personally, I'd challenge anyone to actually notice the difference between SATA and NVMe, let alone the smaller difference to the 660.

Bought this for 169.99 10tb model. Bad sectors. Returned.


I know they go straight into a G8 no modding, I would say the N54L would be the same.


This is the best price at the moment. I ordered one from amazon.co.uk at £159.99 a couple of weeks ago when they were out of stock. They've just been replenished and will ship tomorrow (y) Thank you for the 3.3V pin link! I'll be shucking mine to go in one of the bays of a HP N54L server and didn't know it wouldn't be a straight swap. I appreciate you sharing the knowledge. (highfive)


Yes. Not a drive fault, but a sata quirk. (Regular sellotape cut with regular scissors)


To clarify is the power pin issue is not actually an issue with the drive but that the pin specification shuts the drive down when 3.3v is supplied to the pin and on some psu that pin is always high?

Hi why are some ssd 1tb and others 960gb? Why the 40gb diff isn't it just a waste... Any ideas?


You think that's bad? Try integral brand ssd 1tb before formating was 896.2 Gb from my memory site.


^^ Thanks. I have been using a Adata drive for 2.5 years without a prob so I would be happy to buy another... I realise I could have just been lucky but I think there is always a risk whichever make you go for.


The Crucial one at just under £100 is probably the better bet, worth it for the reliability, though for that reason I'm holding out for the Samsung EVO to drop


There are anecdotal reports of the Adata one being prone to failure.

Cheaper elsewhere and according to the Camels it's been as low as £90 in the past, so this is £23 dearer than the lowest price and as such it's cold for me.


Probably a My Book, it will need a seperate PSU


Do you need an extra external power cable to run that?

Thank you, very informative.


If you read the reviews in detail, the problem was the launch price. Now that it's down at the same price as SATA drives, it's better than any of those and a Good Deal. Same problem as all the QLC drives - the technology was supposed to be cheaper than TLC, but with a small performance penalty. And they launched them at the same price as TLC drives. The market has sorted itself out now and they're priced where they should be.


Just bought similar, realty is if you have SATA SSD don't bother upgrading as the standard user/gamer would see much performance increase. I've only just upgraded my CPU, MOBO & Ram from an old 3770k set up & thought I'd try a NVMe drive as the MOBO supports it. Boot times are around 1-2 seconds faster on a clean OS install. What is a plus for me is the size & no wires ! Not that I'm bothering showing off my PC as it works for use, not an RBG side show. :D


I have one of these. Itt's performing very well for my usage in gaming and 4k media.


It will be cheaper near end of the year as new gen devices emerge

I got some recently and they all had 4Tb WD Blue drives inside.


NTFS is read only on mac. Exfat is compatible read and write on both pc and mac. SO you owuld need to save your data and then format drive to exfat.


Just got a my passport for mac. If I plug in directly its fine but if I plug into the router so its effectivly a wireless hard drive you can copy files off but if you try and copy files on it says ‘I don’t have permission to read the files’ lol i am the administrator and have read and write access. It appears that smb sees the file format to ntfs. But time machine only works with mac hfs file format. Any ideas? BT Smart hub is the router


Had a 2tb for years. No issues.


There were a couple of Warehouse 4TB drives for 55 quid this morning. Nice :)

What HD is inside this? WD Red? (Probably not)


Just asking as i was about to buy this one instead for £84.99 WD My Passport; speaking of specs is the deal any better?? I understand i’m just paying more for a smaller size, but also saves me from using an external AC adapter! Heat added tho. ;) ;)


Just because it's cheaper per TB, doesn't mean that someone is gonna want a larger capacity drive

Toshiba X300 4TB SATA III 3.5" Hard Drive £92.99 at CCL Online
Posted 19th JunPosted 19th Jun
Good value and for this fast and reliable drive, Key Features: 4TB Capacity 7200RPM Spin Speed SATA III Interface 128MB Cache 3.5" Form Factor 1 Year Warranty

They will definitely be oem but there is no indication on the web page. The same drive is available for more on Amazon and they are advertised is "bulk" purchase ie oem. 24% unhappy indicates a bad batch. I have asked for clarification. for X300 the warranty should be for 2 years https://storage.toshiba.com/consumer-hdd/internal Same Price at overclockers with 2 year warranty and honestly described as oem https://www.overclockers.co.uk/toshiba-4tb-x300-high-performance-hard-drive-hdwe140uzsva-hd-042-ts.html#tech_specs


my only issues with these and i have a few - is in my NAS - they get pretty warm... especially in UNRAID on Parity Check Day!!! Not sure now if i put N300 or X300 in my NAS now ive mentioned this - I have them on the side at home - so will check - think its a good deal either way - i do prefer WD Red for NAS though


You do know why most drives now have a one year warranty? They are slowing the manufacturing of them down because SSD's and M.2s are taking over it has NOTHING to do with the reliability of the drive? I am online everyday for at least 12 hours as I make my wage from being online and I have to have access to my 4 X300 drives and each one has been used thousands of times without a single issue...You are over dramatising something..


1 year warranty? your kidding me. This means it is an oem drive and you will have no warranty with toshiba. The warranty is with Amazon for a replacement. Sorry I will give these a miss. If I am paying this amount of money for a hard disk I need to know it is reliable. It is a good deal cheaper than on Amazon though and the cheapest I have seen for a 7200 rpm internal drive.


I have FOUR of these in my main PC, 7200RPM is spot on! it is one of the best drives Ive ever had, Not quite as fast as my Samsung 970 PRO 1TB but then these drives (X300) are there for storage and I suppose as its the 7200rpm could be used as a C:drive. I paid £120 per drive so this is a REAL good find..!! Make no mistake these drives are fantastic! I did all the reviews and almost everyone of them was great. They wont fail like some drives will and their performance is really good... IF you cant afford a high volume SSD and you need a new C:drive this is the answer. IF you are looking for storage for your online games,work files or personal files this drive again is perfect... (party)

I currently have a Kingston A400 240GB drive installed as my OS drive. Generally happy with the performance and wouldn't complain about the speed at all. If I wanted to buy extra storage for a games library (I am not a huge gamer by any means, so only likely to have a dozen or so games installed at a time), would this be more beneficial than just buying a 7200rpm 2TB HDD in regards to day to day tasks and actual gaming performance? I don't mind at all if levels or games load a tad slower, as long as it doesn't actually affect gameplay itself. In terms of day to day use, I use Photoshop a bit, work with PDFs, multi tab browsing, trading.... is this likely to offer a significant improvement over the SSD for those tasks?


Ordered thanks. Been waiting to push the boat out plus also had £45 Amazon voucher so made it a bargain


2TB costs you £247.94 from £284.99. ;)


No 2Tb?!


If you are buying one of these for your Macbook Pro please remember to check that your model is compatible and that you will need an adapter to connect it to the logic board. The adapters are cheap but take a while to deliver. Check on the Macrumors forum as there is a long standing thread about upgrading MacBook Airs & Macbook Pros (2013-2015) with NVMe SSDs
