I have used a Toshiba MK6022GAX and it would stop working when the battery
level got down to about 4.59V. My new Fujitsu MHU2100AT works fine right
down to 4.40V. Which means about a couple of hours extra use. I also got a
slight spinup noise through the earphones with the toshiba, whereas no noise
on the Fujitsu.
The toshibas were fitted as a temporary measure as I knew I was going to
need them for future laptops, where the 16MB cache and 5400rpm speed were
required. For a permanent mp3 player HDD, a 4200 drive is much better.
Also, toshibas don't keep their power management settings between resets,
this means they will never spindown when connected to USB - even if you
don't access them, which is really quite crap. I'd go for a Travelstar or
Fujitsu over a Toshiba every time.
Hope this helps.
