With the Toshiba X300, Toshiba offers a powerful SATA hard drive with up to 6 TB of storage capacity. The models are available with 4 TB, 5 TB or 6 TB. We looked at the middle model, with 5 TB.
The Toshiba X300 has a rotational speed of 7,200 rpm. This gives them a speed advantage over the slower, but also quieter and more energy-efficient models.
With its large 128 MB cache, the Toshiba X300 can achieve a high speed for an HDD. Unfortunately, the hard disk is quite loud compared to other 7,200 RPM HDDs.

The Toshiba X300 is suitable as a data storage device because it offers a very reasonable price of currently (08.04.2017) 30.20 euros per terabyte.
In addition, the X300 5 TB scores with lower power consumption. Unfortunately, however, it is quite loud and there are certainly HDD hard disks that can transfer a few megabytes more per second. If that doesn’t bother you, the Tosbiha X300 series provides you with a solid hard drive for your data collection.
