6 months later, one of the HDD showed Bad Sectors came out and cannot be used for this NAS.
I tried to contact Toshiba from their Web Site, they request me to provide the Part Number.After i gave them the Part Number, I got no response anything around 2 weeks.I swear i will never ever purchse such of Toshiba Product anymore.
It looks like no after service at all.
tl;dr: the drive is, well, it spins up, stores the data put to it, and able to read it back correctly. It is relatively quiet. No louder than other 7200RPM drives, but you're unlikely to forget that it is sitting there on your desk. The fan on your enclosure will likely be louder than the drive motor, but the noise is additive.
Drop test to test the shock sensor:
Ha ha. Funny. Um, no. Don't drop your drive while it is on if at all possible. Spinning rust on metal/glass plates with read/write heads a hair's diameter distance from that surface subject to sudden high g and power lost is likely a non-recoverable event.
Which model should you get?
Is the extra $15-$25 for the extra cache worth it? It depends if your workflow produce files that is larger than the cache of the drive.
If your data is made up mostly of spreadsheets and word processing or other smaller files. You are better off with the lesser cache as you are unlikely to take advantage of the larger cache.
If you do minor image editing (crop, levels, curves, color grading) with relatively few image layers and RAW to JPEG conversions, you'll likely benefit from the extra cache.
If you do heavy duty image editing/composition with multiple image layers and/or video editing, you'll likely not get too much benefit out of the caches as you'll more than likely overwhelm them with your file sizes.
The N300 has specs similar to the WD Red Pro series, higher rotation speed, bigger cache, and more noise.
A home NAS doesn't really need this kind of specs, even if the manufacturer (Synology) recommend it, but at a nice price, why not?
I would go for the quieter drives if price/performance were not a factor.
