Toshiba MN series drives specifications like an N300 drive built on MG

Toshiba is a distant third in enterprise and NAS drives for internal drives, and the market is dominated by WD and Seagate, at least in the Middle East.

We had Toshiba N300 NAS drives (competing with WD RED and Segate Ironwolf) and we had Toshiba MG enterprise drives (competing with WD Ultrastar and Seagate Exos). And now there are MN drives that seem to have the same specs as N300 but are (probably) based on the MG platform

Tosiba MN drives are NAS drives

They are 7200 RPM, Helium sealed drives with 1.2 million hours BTTF and 180TB/year workload. If you think these specs are close to N300 specs, they are.

Warranty for Toshiba MN in UAE  would probably be 3 years

There is no mention of warranty on the Toshiba website or elsewhere. Given the annual workload of 180 TB , we assume that the warranty will be 3 years

Toshiba MG vs. Toshiba MN vs. Toshiba N300

Here is a table with the main specifications of all 3 series. As you can see, the new MN series is very similar to the N300 series.
