The N300 has excellent performance characteristics (just
like its X300 sibling).
It also has features that make it ideal for use in a densely
populated NAS enclosure, or in any other environment where it is housed in
close proximity to other HDDs.
I found the Toshiba N300 6TB on sale at scan.co.uk for £179.99
(where the X300 was just £4 cheaper). Of the two of these I’d opt for the N300
and get the extra peace of mind.
I am therefore pleased to award the Toshiba N300 6TB our
rating of ‘Outstanding’ and name it as an "Editor’s Choice".
