How reliable is Toshiba?

  Ive only had my P300 3TB for about 5-6 months , but no problems , no noise (its quite) and runs cool . A buddy of mine has the P300 2TB for about 8-10 months , and the same for him , no problems and silent . We both use them as gaming (game only) drives .

Best info I can offer atm . As far as longevity , these units have not been out long enough to really give a good evaluation  on that .

According to Backblaze they say Toshiba's drives are pretty good however the 3TB are the worst of the bunch
this is not to say they are bad, but the 4tb and the 5tb have better records (They don't fail)
The only issue is they don't have a lot of Toshiba's (about 250 or so) so it's hard to get a proper baseline.
For 2016
3TB - 2 Failures
4TB - 0 Failures
5TB - 1 Failure

And in 2015 they lost 2 drives for each model.

Better than a Seagate 4TB any day of the week. (Over 700 failures)

In for one Toshiba P300 3TB....but the coupon code in the original post was rejected. I used BFFLYER05 and it gave me $10 off to reach final price $69

 Yeh , looks like Newegg re-started the deal with a new code . 

Amazon has also matched the $70 price ,  LINK

Both Promo codes; BFFLYER05 & 1127CM82 are invalid
