Default Toshiba DT01ACA100 1TB review: Toshiba's first 3.5-inch hard disk

We are very happy that Toshiba has now become a player in the 3.5-inch hard disk market after its acquisition of Hitachi, so Seagate and Western Digital at least have some competition. However, it's clear that there is room for improvement for Toshiba. Their marketing department needs to think of more memorable and pronounceable product names than DT01ACA100, at least if they want their disks to be sold separately. Their engineers also have their work cut out for them, because while the disk we tested isn't bad, it's more than one years old. It's nothing more than a re-labeled Hitachi 7K1000.D. The more modern Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 1TB is quite a bit faster, costs the same, and is equally quiet. The choice here is obvious.
