Description

The DT desktop hard disk drive series provides large capacity and features an innovative technology to deliver a greater level of power efficiency and quiet operation for energy-conscious, environmentally-friendly computers. With low power, high capacity and cool operation, these 3.5-inch (8.9 cm) drives offer a rotation speed of up to 5940 rpm and an interface transfer rate of 6 Gb/s. In addition, the DT Series uses Advanced Format technology to provide maximum error detection and more efficient use of the storage surface area.

RELIABILITY AND PERFORMANCE

The DT Desktop hard disk drive series provides up to 3 TB capacity at a rotation speed of up to 5940 rpm and an interface transfer rate of 6 Gb/s. In addition, the Advanced Format Technology provides maximum error detection and more efficient use of the storage surface area.

SILENT OPERATION

Due to the "Silent-Seek" technology the HDDs are extremely quiet: Ultra-silent single-platter drives boast acoustic specifications of 25dBA (seek) and 24dBA (idle) making them almost indistinguishable to the human ear.

POWER EFFICIENCY

Toshiba drives offer excellent power efficiency. As with all Toshiba HDDs, the complete series is halogen-free and RoHS compatible, therefore, exceptionally environmentally friendly.

Wanted a very big drive but put off by some of the reliability concerns with WD red/black and seagate drives(and been caught out by big seagate drives in the past). Not overly interested in performance as its going into a USB multibay caddy for my media centre. VERY quiet and runs cool. Will try and remember to update this in six months if still going strong. Regarding BT: I ordered it late on a Friday - arrived by courier on the Monday morning (standard 98p delivery) - superb! Well packed in its retail box.
