Toshiba S300 5TB HDD Review

Posted 13 February 2019 17:09 CET by Jeremy Reynolds


I was not able to test the Toshiba S500 in the context of its intended use for video surveillance but in our standard tests it proved to be a competent drive.  I would though be inclined to go for the larger capacity models (6TB and above) to benefit from a larger buffer (256Mb rather than 128Mb) and a higher rotation speed (7200 rpm rather than 5400 rpm), which would no doubt add significantly to performance.

I found the Toshiba S300 5TB model on sale for GBP £146.11 and the 6TB model for £149.98.

I am pleased to award the Toshiba S300 our rating of ‘Excellent’.
