One Question: Unlike all other HDD manufacturers, why doesn't Toshiba list the drive's spec for: MTBF and Load/Unload values for their X300 drives ? I've attempted to obtain this info from Toshiba Japan as well as their international affiliates, all of which confirm this info is not disclosed by Toshiba. When asked why, their response was they feel this specification is not necessary for consumer HDD's. I am hopeful you can look into this further as this non-disclosure is quite concerning. If the actual MTBF is say 500K and the load/ unload is 100K...wow this would be a huge concern considering the present norm is 1,000,000 and 300K respectively. Pls express your concerns or forward your inquiry to Toshiba: answer@webcom.toshiba.co.jp
