Good brand 2TB drive in 2.5" form factor. 5/25/2020 7:21:14 AM

Pros: 2 TB for a 2.5" drive is very nice. I was able to format this into 2 931GB volumes.
I put this drive and a SSD drive into the same slot as an old 3.5" drive using a dual carrier. Now I have a faster system with more storage than I previously had.

Cons: 9.5 mm is thicker than supported by some devices (did not fit a NUC10).

Overall Review: Reccomended.

Quick and quiet 3/12/2019 11:16:23 AM

Pros: The good stuff...
+ Solid and compact build
+ Quiet
+ Quick

The L200 has a pretty solid and compact build. I am amazed 2TB mechanical storage can fit inside such a small space these days.

I am also amazed how quiet the drive is. No clicks or spin-up sounds.

Copying a 1GB and a 2GB file on Windows went a quicker than expected and I was not able to gauge an average "real-world" use-case.

Using a benchmarking tool (and my anti-virus off), a 1GB and 2GB sequential read average 146MB/s with a write average about 153MB/s. A 4GB sequential read 152MB/s and write 154MB/s. This is not a real-world test since I have my anti-virus off and using a benchmarking tool instead of the OS and all its baggage doing the work. Its pretty quick for a 5400RPM.

Cons: Issues during my experience...
- None

I had no issues or concerns during my review.

Overall Review: I would recommend this drive even if the price is slightly over the average of 2TB 2.5" drives.

Toshiba 2TB L200 Laptop Hard Drive 12/11/2018 6:08:23 PM

Pros: +
• Large amount of storage space 2Tb (1859.7 GB formatted in windows)
• 128Mb cache speeds up file access
• Runs cool, Crystal Disk Info reports 32 ºC (89.6 ºF) during normal operation
• Quiet, it doesn’t stand out, or make old school hard drive chugging noises.
• Price

Cons: none.

Overall Review: ~
I’ve been using this as the boot drive on my laptop, its proven to be a solid performer throughout my usage and testing. I have had no hiccups at all since initializing and formatting the drive.

I cloned my existing laptop hard drive to this drive after initializing it on my PC, it was a fairly easy process.
Having a good preparation for cloning is a must. If you would like to go the route of cloning, using cloning software and some basic windows command lines is essential.
If the cloning software makes a clone but the drive won’t boot to windows, then you will need to get into the technical end of windows recovery: You should typically have a bootable windows recovery USB before you begin the process, so you can access the windows command prompt in recovery. Have windows command lines associated with rebuilding the MBR and related boot commands, such as bootrec /fixmbr, /fixboot and /rebuildbcd.
Usually that is all you will need to get a clone drive to launch windows, if it wont boot from the cloned drive. Many times cloning software will successfully work without the need to get into the technical end of fixing the boot record, but being prepared will take the headache out, if it doesn’t go smoothly.
(I used freeware cloning software)

For a mechanical drive it performs very well for its price point, its not going to win any speed awards over a SSD, but should be a perfect fit for the average user that needs more space.
Other worthy applications of this drive would be a small form factor Home Theater PC, or NUC, that have limited physical space constraints for adding drives.

Real world benchmark test:
I copied a Picture folder from a Micro SD card, connected through a direct USB adapter, to the desktop of my laptop. (The Micro SD card is just a standard SanDisk, nothing high speed or fancy).
The folder contained a modest 3.67GB made up of 7,143 photos.
The transfer took approximately 4:06 (four minutes, six seconds), measuring with my non-scientific method of using the stopwatch on my phone.

Crystal Disk Mark:
First test once drive was initialized connected to my desktop PC:
i7, 16GB ram
CrystalDiskMark 6.0.1 x64
Sequential Read : 150.456 MB/s
Sequential Write: 158.005 MB/s
Random Read 4KiB (Q 8,T 8) : 0.572 MB/s [139.6 IOPS]
Random Write 4KiB (Q 8,T 8) : 7.078 MB/s [1728.0 IOPS]
Random Read 4KiB (Q 32,T 1) : 0.579 MB/s [141.4 IOPS]
Random Write 4KiB (Q 32,T 1) : 7.093 MB/s [1731.7 IOPS]
Random Read 4KiB (Q 1,T 1) : 0.459 MB/s [112.1 IOPS]
Random Write 4KiB (Q 1,T 1) : 6.728 MB/s [1642.6 IOPS]
_____

Laptop results after 30 days of use:
i5, 4GB ram
CrystalDiskMark 6.0.1 x64
Sequential Read : 144.126 MB/s
Sequential Write: 149.074 MB/s
Random Read 4KiB (Q 8,T 8) : 0.854 MB/s [208.5 IOPS]
Random Write 4KiB (Q 8,T 8) : 4.253 MB/s [1038.3 IOPS]
Random Read 4KiB (Q 32,T 1) : 0.838 MB/s [204.6 IOPS]
Random Write 4KiB (Q 32,T 1) : 3.839 MB/s [937.3 IOPS]
Random Read 4KiB (Q 1,T 1) : 0.398 MB/s [97.2 IOPS]
Random Write 4KiB (Q 1,T 1) : 4.482 MB/s [1094.2 IOPS]

The somewhat slower test results on my laptop can be associated with its age, slower processor and limited ram. Both my PC and laptop are running windows 10 pro x64.

Overall I have been pleased with the performance and absolutely satisfied with the copious amount of space. The real world transfer test I performed surpassed my expectations of speed, and I was pleasantly surprised. The Crystal DiskMark results were in the margin of speed you would expect from a drive in this category and no real shock at the reported speeds. It wont match the speed of an SSD, but until you can get a 2TB drive at the same price, that's a fairly petty argument.
The 2 year warranty is a pretty standard offering for drives in this price range, and I wouldn’t use that as a measure of long term reliability. I have hard drives in use and still working that are well beyond their manufacturers warranty period.

I would absolutely recommend this drive for anyone that needs to upgrade their laptop storage space or looking to build or expand a HTPC or NUC PC.

Affordable drive... but that's about it. 11/15/2018 5:33:18 PM

Pros: - Extremely affordable ($/GB)

- Large capacity (2TB)

Cons: - It's a spinning 5400 RPM drive... it's not going to win any speed races:

MIN. 66 MB/sec, MAX 152.5 MB/sec, AVG. 115.2 MB/sec, BURST RATE 1.4 MB/sec

I'm not kidding you... it did a 1.4 MB/sec for BURST RATE on HD TUNE Benchmark test... same result even after running several benchmarks in a row.

Overall Review: - Given the high failure rate of Toshiba laptop drives and spotty performance of their desktop drives... coupled with non-support and a 2 year parts / labor "warranty"... take the money you WOULD have spent on this drive and invest in a quality SSD from a reputable manufacturer.

Great Value and Performance 11/14/2018 10:29:41 AM

Pros: Toshiba hard drives have a lot going for them. They come in packaging with the type of packing material I like to see with a hard drive. It's simple, but extremely effective. They come in a small box with an inflated hard drive protector that's a perfect fit for the hard drive inside of it. With this protecting your drive, it would have to be handled extremely roughly during shipment to damage the drive. Also, I like them because they're nice to store old used hard drives in them. Inside the packaging, your drive comes inside of an anti-static bag, as you'd expect.
The 1 TB variant of these drives operates on a SATA 6 Gb/sec interface, have 128 MB of cache and spin at 5400 RPMs. The noise level of this hard drive is pretty minimal, I typically can't hear it over top of my laptops cooling fan.
Using Crystal Disk Mark, AS SSD benchmarks and AIDA 64. Sequential Read and Write times averaged right around 150 MB/sec pretty much across the board on a new drive. As the drive approached full, speeds degraded closer to the 90 MB/sec sequential read and write mark.

Cons: None at this time.

Overall Review: My laptop is a Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with an Intel Core i5 2520M. I got it on sale from Newegg for an extremely good price. It was a refurb that came with a 320 GB hard drive. I typically use my laptop for downloading all types of large files that I don't want to burden my desktop PC's SSD with. So the 320 GB hard drive it came with was far from practical for my use case. I needed a lot more storage, but I don't want to spend a lot on a hard drive for a laptop I got for cheap. That just wouldn't make sense. Looking at all the various laptop hard drives in the "cheap as possible" price range doesn't give a lot of options for performance hard drives. Typically, there you'll only find eco hard drives. Mainly designed for power saving. In that category, this Toshiba drive stands out. It doesn't have the max RPM you'd want in a performance HDD, but all the rest of the specs are pretty impressive. 128 MB of cache until recently has been reserved for only high end hard drives and the read and write speeds are very respectable.
I actually own and operate 4 Toshiba hard drives. I have a RAID 0 array with a couple desk top HDDs, this drive and a portable 1TB drive, which I suspect might have this hard drive inside of it. I've never had any issues with any of them so far. They're decent performing drives for a great price. Which is why I keep buying them.

All things considered I think these drives are a great value. They come well packaged, the price to performance ratio is really good and they have a 2 year warranty. I am giving these drives a 4 Egg rating. I don't really have a problem with these drives, but I just don't think they deserve 5 Eggs.

QUESTIONABLE 11/12/2018 5:30:36 AM

Pros: It worked in the Desktop PC and AMD Sata II Laptop. Make good back up for Desktop PC. Runs cool and quiet. In addition, after several days of use the performance improved. Good for a main drive in low end system build saving space. Toshiba have made my list for drives.

Cons: This is a 9.5MM HDD which will not fit some Laptops.
Does not work in different environments. Technology can be very specific at times; however, I thought the drive would at least do more when it comes to testing. Failed to load boot loader sometimes. Some BIOS are strict.

Overall Review: I would only purchase for Desktop PC low end build, backup or Sata II Laptop drive.

Overall decent laptop hard drive. 10/30/2018 6:56:03 AM

Pros: + With a lot of newer notebooks on the market that use an M.2 SSD as the main drive, they also have space for a standard laptop hard drive. This particular drive serves very well as a secondary storage hard drive.

+ Good speed for a 2TB laptop hard drive with speeds ranging from 130MB/s to 60MB/s especially when considering general storage requirements vs. main hard drive.

+ Very quiet and runs relatively cool.

+ 128MB Cache is provided even though the drive is only 5,400rpm

+ 2 year warranty vs. more common 1 year

+ Does not constantly spin down when not in use compared to some of competitors’ hard drives. As a result, there is less wear and tear on this drive.

Cons: - 9.5mm height reducing compatibility with laptops requiring 7mm height hard drives.

- The retail package doesn’t include anything more than bare drives. Toshiba could have at least included 4x screws.

Overall Review: Even though the drive will have adequate performance as the main system drive, a recommendation would still be to use an SSD as the primary drive and this 2TB Toshiba hard drive as storage hard drive.

Also, it would have been better to have a longer warranty such as 5-year that is found on some of the competition’s laptop drives.

Toshiba L200 1TB Laptop PC Internal Hard Drive great for storage, okay for budget OS in Laptop 10/29/2018 1:02:19 PM

Pros: Energy efficient – less battery drain than higher rpm drives, but comes at a performance cost.
Fast for what it is, but do not buy this for speed as a primary drive. See “Other thoughts”.
Quiet for a mechanical drive.
Cheap for either budget OS or storage in a laptop. It could get you by as primary OS drive if it must.
Large storage capacity at 1TB.
Size Factor. Compatible with older and newer laptops.

Cons: None with the drive for what it is – see “Other thoughts”.

Overall Review: As prices gradually keep dropping for SSD’s you need to use one for your OS on a laptop. They always will give you a noticeable improvement difference and are a cheap way to improve an older laptop.

These mechanical drives are great for laptops with room for an additional drive.

Can you get by with this as your primary OS drive? Sure! But when mobile processing can be much more enjoyable with an SSD for that, save a little and step up if you can. Compliment it with this and you are set with plenty of storage for your personal files, music, et al.

I have no idea why they keep using mechanical drives other than they must be depleting their stock before making SSD’s the mainstream primary drive in laptops. Other than having old stock needing to get depleted, the cost is not much different to install smaller SSD’s up front now.

I always shop for laptops that are either low enough priced to afford to upgrade immediately to an SSD, or with an SSD already being provided as primary drive. SSD is typically the best bang for your buck in a laptop (or PC) for upgrading (as far as speeding it up). Soon these mechanical drives will be outdated enough that they stop shipping in original configurations and are used mainly for storage as external drives, and come in high capacity only - such as this one.

I also make use of these for ultraportable storage solutions, with a cheap adapter to hook it into USB 3.0 ports for data migration and initial program installations on new systems. I don’t usually bother buying an enclosure for them but that is a good option too for a daily use external for longer term.

Toshiba has been very dependable for me and so has this drive for the weeks I have tested it. No SMART errors, or bad sectors. Drive health reported at 100% using HD Sentinel. Temps fine.
