The N300 high-reliability hard drives feature a generous 128 MB data buffer, offering a sustained data transfer rate of more than 200 MB/s. The 6 TB model has a 4 TB sibling as well.

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.
