As it is the first “consumer” 5TB 7200RPM HDD, I was a little worried about buying this drive. Then I found out that Toshiba bought the manufacturers of those old Hitachi drives. I have a 80GB Hitachi drive that has worked unceasingly for over a decade and a half, so it made me feel better about getting this drive. So far, it's quiet enough, fast enough, and has lots of room.

5TB Toshiba Seems to read about the Same speed as the 5 x 1TB WD Greens in raidz. Roughly 150MB/s reads if I recall correctly. Moves along pretty quick for a spinning disk. Makes a good place to drop whatever I'm currently tinkering on if it is a bit to big to work with on the SSD..

A bit slow, but the extra storage is exactly what I needed in a backup drive.

Love that it's 5TB. It runs pretty hot though. At least 48°C all the time.

14.1591796875 cents per Gigabyte is great bargain in my opinion. The disk doesn't rotate at a ridiculous 10,000 rpm, but 7,200 is still very fast for an HDD in my opinion the drive fits nicely in my 3.5" drive bay. It's pretty hard to use up 5TBs so I partitioned the drive into 5 931 GB parts, I mostly use it for storing videos, images, and backups.
