Yep, I saw it. Thank you for making sure. This thread is only for the P300 though. It's a great large capacity hard drive for use as storage at an extremely good price - especially for people who'd much rather spend as little as possible while still getting a very good large capacity hard drive for storage use. It would even be quite good as an OS drive. Even so, if someone can afford to spend $120 with ease (if spending $120 is really no different to them than spending $70), then sure, the 5TB X300 would be a much smarter purchase, especially if the goal is to obtain a great large capacity OS drive. The X300 drives would be quite overkill as storage drives, but still, at $120 for a 5TB drive, the X300 is indeed quite a good deal.Originally Posted by kd5151
Did you see the 5 TB one? https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?sdtid=10826535&SID=2ffc2aa0cb2711e7a541aeb9af6f605e0INT&AID=10446076&PID=1225267&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-Slickdeals%20LLC-_-na-_-na-_-na&Item=N82E16822149628&Tpk=N82E16822149628&cm_sp=
comes to the same price per TB.
From all the research that I have personally done, I have come to the conclusion that the Toshiba P300 drives are excellent even if you wanted to use this as your OS drive. They are about on par with WD Black drives, and actually better in some respects - but not better in others of course. They're just about the same.
Oh nice. That's good to know. I wouldn't even get it at $81.99. It was $79.99 before. It seems to be $81.99 or more everywhere right now.Originally Posted by rudyae86
dang it! And I was about to buy one lol. Oh well, I am sure we will see this price in the next 2 or 3 months. It is known that the first 2 or 3 months there are some killer deals similar to BF or CM.
Thank you. That's only $38 more than the 3 TB P300 right now! I don't know anything about the quality or speed or reliability of the X300 Series, but I have to assume it's much better since its intended use would require a superior hard drive.
