    Default How Reliable are Toshiba Hard Drives ?

    How reliable are toshiba drives ? I have been using HGST and WD blue drives and those never failed on me. Toshiba drives are a bit cheaper and comes in 2 TB / 3 TB options. Are those reliable ? People using them please give your review. (I know WD bought Toshiba HDD, no need to point that out)

    You know wrong. WD bought HGST, then had to sell the 3.5 inch Desktop HDD assets to Toshiba to comply with anti competitive practices law. So basically current Toshiba = Pre 2012 Hitachi/HGST.

    Oh, If current Toshiba quality is anywhere around HGST drives in quality, than it should be good enough for me

    Seagate has the ticking noise issue. No other brands particularly.
