Customer Reviews

If you’ve previously seen my review for the Toshiba HDWD240, then this is more or less the same deal, just with more capacity. 3 platters, 2 TB each, obviously enabled by SMR (sorry, no FC-MAMR for you yet, consumers). It’s up against the WD60EZAZ and ST6000DM003, which are obviously from our old rivals Western Digital and Seagate respectively. As is usual for Tosh SMRs, there isn’t any TRIM (so old deleted blocks will continue to hamper performance despite being, well, deleted), unlike all WDs and modern Seagate SMRs, and, like the rest of the P300 SMR series, this drive only offers 128 MB cache despite the other two aforementioned competitors offering 6 TB, which *may* imply worse performance during shingle rearrangement. Staying true to the P300 line, we continue to use HGST designs, but with all new Toshiba firmware, which is a nice novelty. Unexpectedly, the P300 SMRs are some of the quietest drives around (a marked change of mind compared to my HDWD240 review), and my HDWD260 is no different, easily beating out a WD30EZRZ which is also tri-platter. Performance wise, the HDWD260 delivers as promised on the datasheet (of the OEM branded DT02ABA600, which is the same thing really). CrystalDiskMark 8.0.1 reads 176 and 187 MB/s for 8-queue sequential, and 174 and 187 for just one queue. Random, meanwhile, is pretty poor as always, at 0.6 and 8.5 for 32 queue random 4K, and 0.54 and 7.9 for single queue random 4K, though do mind that these were performed on a USB 3.0 bridge that only supports SATA 2 and has no UASP, so UASP or true SATA performance will almost certainly be superior. Additionally, h2testw gives a concluding writing speed of 153 MB/s (minimum verification speed cannot be taken for granted as it also involves verification on the CPU side). Needless to say, both h2testw and a standard firmware-controlled SMART long test check out okay, and of course, the attributes and statistics are just fine, with zero in every pertinent reliability value (reallocs, current pending, disk shift, load friction). However, YMMV; you may get the golden drive, you may not, but have backups anyway. Overall, I’m happy to recommend the P300 SMR series as some of the best SMR drives you can get; quiet, rarely hampered by shingle rearrangement and some of the cheapest per-TB in Australia; of course, CMR will always be the way to go if possible, so if that's your cheapest (or if it comes close), go that route; it'll save you from SMR's peculiarities.
