The Toshiba HDWL110. Just the usual suspect for a 1 TB 2.5" drive; 5400 RPM, SMR, 7 mm z-height. Unfortunately, the product listing (as of Aug 30) suggests an 8 MB cache, which would point at this drive's sister model, the HDWJ110 which is CMR. If you're looking for the last CMR 1 TB 2.5" in production, look elsewhere. Anyway, on to the drive itself. As shipped, it arrived in a cardboard envelope, unfortunately with no void fill. While this is the unfortunate fault of ozgameshop and I'd really like to see them improve their packaging practices whenever possible, this may have caused some damage which is of no fault to Toshiba. Interestingly, the drive is from the 13th July production run, meaning it must've been fresh delivered to ozgameshop before dispatch. Owing to the suspicious packaging, I decided to run a full battery of tests; a GSmartControl initiated extended test, and a full write and verify of every sector using h2testw. Fortunately, both tests passed with flying colours, as does the SMART attributes and statistics with no ominous signs. Performance wise, a basic test using CrystalDiskMark 7.0.0h reveals a SEQ1M (Q8T1) read speed of about 128 MB/s, writes being 118 MB/s. For Q1T1, 126 MB/s was attained on reads and writes. Of course, the hard drive shows the usual poor random scores, by no fault of Toshiba and more so the nature of mechanical drives. Overall, my particular sample runs just fine, although of course, all hard drive production runs are different. The only flaw stopping this drive from attaining a four star is the relatively poor packaging as dispatched from ozgameshop, which is an easy, if not slightly more expensive than needed, fix.
