Toshiba DT1ACA01 100 TB hard drive test, affordable performance - video tutorial

Hi friends, today I will present a hard drive from Toshiba that I was pleasantly surprised, initially did not intend to use the hard drive Toshiba DT01ACA100 for his performance, but storage capacity at a good price. This drive was to be used NAS ZyXEL's NSA 320Now after seeing what I think I can use it on PC.
After some time in the Asian region there were some floods that ruined hard drives industry worldwide, prices rose and came hard sites as a tablet to cost.
Now things start to return to normal, prices are back to their pre-flood value, plus it seems that manufacturers forced the incredible rise of SSDs, they began HDDs faster and more spacious.
The model I own it has a capacity of 1 TB and that on one turntable, a high density of data translates into a higher speed transfer and a lower price.
Even if SSDs are highly efficient, can not be a realistic option for data storage, the price per gigabyte is too high, also known as the hard drive is more durable over time (no shock).
In terms of data security, it is known that the data on a magnetic disk can recover faster than a group of NAND flash chips, that can be stored as a file on multiple flash chips.
Do not misunderstand, but SSDs are excellent storage is better and cheaper HDD.
If you want to test your hard drive with the same software as in the tutorial, you can download HD Tune or HD Tune Pro on:, In this way you can tell what kind of hard drive you can.

    Crsiti, why didn't you do this test backwards, I don't understand why you choose software that runs in windows / graphics, the conclusive tests are not related to drives (windows / hardware) as functional, although the keys on hardware are made without third-party software installed, exactly what I mentioned above, it steals you as they say, especially since you promote Windows OS through everything you do "without words", although those who know, opnen source software, are better than those with payment, we do not discuss of the free ones.

    Depends on how you format it! is preferable to use fat32 to stick there all 4k is the default, if you choose the default is ext fat 128 k.

  11. -I have a Hitachi HDD, 2,32-bit SATA, 500 GB and I want to buy a 1 TERA HDD, does it matter if it's SATA 2 or 3? ; that is, will both HDDs work well even if one is SATA 2, 32 bits and the other SATA 3,64 bits? there are no conflicts of any kind in the bios, SO,?

  12. Cristi why my Hitachi HDD speed has TB 1 142 mb and when Cara louder in HD Tune test drops to 6 mb. I do not know why. Is it broken? I for one I did with HD Tune Pro test errors and I have no error is all green. HDD Hitachi Deskstar is my 7K1000.C 1TB, 7200rpm, 32MB, SATA2. And my chart is as follows. (Mentioenz that are busy 400 GB HDD is not empty) but I do not think this is relevant.

  13. hi cristi! with this program you can check if hardisk.ul is defective?

  14. Toshiba recently come on the market are modern HDD 3,5 because they wanted to cover this section, so generally do not find many reviews about this type of HDD from them on the Internet. Although they are in direct competition with WD and Seagate grandes there appears to be some understandings (regulations) between them. So do not be surprised that the PC will see (recognize) as Hitachi hard drive actually. Exlicatia is that Hitachi and WD were taken by some of the assets (assets) were transferred to Hitachi Toshiba (Phylum complicated international economic and legal) to enter and her business. The fact is that they have big ambitions in this area hardware and coscecinta I soar and I got myself one recent 1 ff TB (the tutorial) at a good price ff. The first impression is good and considering that there are an average user, considerate of his PC. I will return with more than 2-3 years
    PS It should go to the trade names that make the products sell (as do those from Seagate and WD) because "ACA, MACA, ABA, BUBU" plus some numbers do not really attract regular customers.

  21. Cristi can explain why Acronis Disk Director Partition after HDD cluster puts Paragon wrong and when controlled alignement tool shows me that HDD is not aligned well cluster

  22. Cristi Toshiba hdd 1tb is not the thinnest, the thinnest seems to me Seagate st1000dm003 and it works without problems, while I have Toshiba in a PC it just boots and loads win7 starter has 18.4 ms access time And in addition, when it stays in IDLE, it sounds slow there as if it were accessing data even in the entered BIOS, so I know that a hdd craie if it is accessed, does not carry like a fool for no reason. In the Bad sector, SMART - OK
