Although the market share controlled by traditional hard drives continues to shrink, new models keep showing up from time to time. However, they usually target the enterprise market and home users/small businesses planning to use them for NAS applications. The Toshiba N300 is such a drive, offering the ability to operate 24/7 while handling very large amounts of data.

Toshiba N300 drives come in only two variants - 4 TB and 6 TB. They both offer similar sustained data transfer performance - 200 MB/s for the 4 TB model and 210 MB/s for the larger one. Both spin at 7200 RPM and come with a large 128 MB data buffer with Dynamic Cache.

The N300 comes with multiple technologies destined to increase its reliability, including multiple shock sensors and a tied spindle motor that helps reduce system-generated vibration.

Both Toshiba N300 drives come with a three-year warranty and carry price tags of £180 GBP and £350 GBP in the UK (roughly $225 USD and $435 USD). The date of arrival and pricing for the US market has not been announced yet.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
