Toshiba DT01ACA100 1TB 3.5" Consumer HDD Review

Toshiba DT01ACA 1TB HDD




Our sample of the 1TB DTO1ACA was delivered in bare-drive form. The manufacture date is listed at the top right, with capacity, and firmware revision in the center.




The backside of the drive houses a teal green PCB, with several Torx screws holding it in place.




Removing the PCB, we find a large thermal pad, to transfer the heat from the drive controller. A set of pins connects the PCB to the internal components.




A closer look at the PCB reveals that the LSI controller is next to 32MB of DRAM cache. At the top of the drive, we have the spindle controller.
