1. 5tb toshiba canvio 3. 0 plus portable hard drive in black; 8mb cache; 5400 rpm. Compatible with pc and mac. .
Decent for external
Pros: A lot faster than my 7 year old 320GB drive that only gets 30MB/s read/write. This when connected to a usb 3.0 port gets 95 MB/s read/write which isn't bad for a 5400rpm drive considering my internal 7200rpm 64MB cache drive gets 120MB/s reads on sata3.
Cons: Doesnt come close to usb 3.0 capabilities...but still better than usb 2.0 drives. Remember though, if you dont have usb 3.0 you will not see the increase speed that 3.0 allows.
Other Thoughts: This is a "portable" drive so it doesnt come with a long usb cable. I got this for desktop use though since it was under 90$ when I got it. Didnt know about the cable. Was planning to put it on my desk. Instead It sits on the computer at the moment.
