5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive

Pros: Light weight but solid. Fast writing. Works on all computers I've tried with no problems

Cons: I really don't have any for here.

Other Thoughts: We've had this since purchasing it from Newegg in January 2012. Really nice drive and love having the mega extra space. I've used it with a Toshiba satellite, work pc's, and now it's most frequently hooked to our Samsung Google Chromebook. I've never had a problem with any computer recognizing it and the speed is very doable.

4 out of 5 eggsfast, but drive changed

Pros: fast drive. reaching usb 3.0 speeds. 71 GB transferred in 17 minutes. better than usb 2.0

Cons: the one that i got is no longer a sata drive in an enclosure with a controller connected. the drive has the usb 3.0 controller board attached directly to the drive.

Other Thoughts: toshiba probably did this to prevent people like me from taking advantage of the price disparity between internal laptop drives and the external drives like this. i had planned to put it in my laptop as a storage drive--it was cheaper to buy this than a retail laptop package from toshiba. it works as advertised. WD drives still seem to have the sata connectors.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent drive so far

Pros: Got about 100MBps write speed using my Surface Pro USB 3.0 interface to move large video files. Haven't tested read speed, access time, etc yet. I'm sure it's fast enough for a mechanical drive to not care about exact numbers.

Cons: None yet. Will see if it dies over time.

Other Thoughts: Another review comments that the connection is proprietary. It isn't. It's the same connection used in every other USB 3 external drive I've seen. It's a USB 3.0 Micro-B connector.

1 out of 5 eggs2 Failed with Limited Use

Pros: When they worked, they worked decently

Cons: Both of the hard drives failed within 3 months time. Now all I get with them are clicking hard drives and no access to the data that I was able to copy to them.

Other Thoughts: The original one failed and it was past the Newegg Return Policy. I went to the Toshiba website to get an RMA and they wanted $150 (over 1 1/2 times what I paid for it) for them to issue an RMA Number and send back to them for repair/replacement!!!

I cancelled that RMA and purchased another from NewEgg. Well, that one failed immediately and I was able to replace with NewEgg's Return Policy (you ROCK NewEgg!).

The replacement failed 40 days after I received it. NOW, I have 2 failed Canvio 1TB Portable Hard Drives that are only useful as paperweights!

3 out of 5 eggswill disconnect on macbook

Pros: Fast, quiet, cool, small, light, good cable, needs no Y cable on MBP mid-2012 (USB 3.0) (canvio date 08/12)

Drive came with "Mac Driver", Tuxera NTFS for mac.dmg to install. worked well but didnt use much, reformatted GUID for bootable clones.

Cons: The drive will "disconnect" about once a day, cannot be ejected not even by Disk Utility, the only way is to shut down and start back up. files can be read but not written nor trashed, error -50. I don't remember whether that was already the case when still NTFS formatted, or not.

Other Thoughts: using the drive for hourly carbon copy cloner backups of a macbook pro mid-2012 (USB 3.0, 250 GB SSD, Mountain Lion). The backup takes about 7 mins and does not slow anything down. It works great, apart from disconnecting.

4 out of 5 eggs2 Years... then failure

Pros: Nice storage space, low power usage, decent transfer rate.

Cons: I thought the drive failed while I was at a family event transferring pics to all my extended family, turns out the USB port was what was faulty and all my data is intact. I bump 1 egg not for the faulty USB port, but for the case being extra difficult to pry open without breaking it.

Other Thoughts: I thought I could pop it open and re-solder the USB connections on the PCB, but 1) they were closer than my smallest tip, and 2) I damaged the case so badly trying to open it that now I just need a new enclosure.

I still like the drive and trust this manuf, and honestly, I can't complain about the failure because I pretty much plug-cycle this thing 6x a week for almost 2 years.

2 out of 5 eggsDisapointed

Pros: USB 3.0 available

Cons: Broken within a year

Other Thoughts: Bought this as a backup storage device and was happy for a while. I had just built a new PC and liked that it was 3.0 compatible. It worked well for up to about 11 months. This is the point it started to click whenever I plugged it in and it wouldn't load. It worked well while it lasted, however I'm still disappointed it broke within a year.

2 out of 5 eggsProprietary USB connector

Pros: Capacity of 1TB for a 2.5" USB-powered external drive is excellent for today.

Cons: Proprietary USB connector. This is unacceptable - Toshiba is not Apple. Avoid this whenever possible.

Other Thoughts: Two stars for capacity and speed.

There are plenty of standard USB cables available immediately from other devices, from full A/B sizes to mini to micro. This is now the only proprietary USB cable I own aside from Apple products.

This drive will be either returned or given as a gift. Stick with Seagate and Western Digital external USB drives. No more Toshiba without standard connectors.

5 out of 5 eggsToshibarific?

Pros: Price, design, decent speed.

Cons: The end of the USB drive that plugs into the HD is not mini USB but that might be necessary for a 3.0 drive. It's been awhile since I bought an external HD so no eggs off for that.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to backup my DVD collection on and send to my brother, who is in the Army in Afghanistan, for entertainment.

5 out of 5 eggsNice little drive for the price

Pros: Some people have stated that this drive didn't work at first, or stopped working. I've had it now for 3 1/2 weeks and it's still humming along. I use it for my movies I save off my TiVo and I have plenty of space left.

Cons: The first time I plugged it into my desktop it hung while trying to load the software that ships on the drive. It's some proprietary backup software and something else that I will never ever use. So I ran a fast format on the drive, made it happy, and haven't had trouble since.
Really, really short, proprietary USB cable. The cable is about 12" long; clearly TOSHIBA intended this to be used on a laptop and not a desktop.

Other Thoughts: If you do not need backup software, format the drive before first use.
