5 out of 5 eggsOver a year and a half of ownership still good.

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Basics 3.0 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTB105XK3AA Black

Pros: USB3, so it runs about as fast as if it was hooked up internal, being a 2.5" slower drive.
Standard USB3 cable, cheaply replaced if ever needed.
Still working after 1 year 8 months without any issues.

I like the fact is is black and sleek.

Cons: None really for the type of drive this is, small typically means slower rpm (5,400) in this case.

Other Thoughts: I used this drive for college. I was broke at the time that I bought it and only got a 500GB, Wish I would have had the money for a bigger one at the time.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid, Quality Product

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Basics 3.0 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTB105XK3AA Black

Pros: I'm extremely satisfied with this hard drive. The past year this has been my primary backup drive as a student and traveling professional. It's tossed into my backpack, connected every day, and I've had zero problems with it. Its reasonably fast over USB 2.0 and pretty quick over 3.0 and runs quiet and cool. I especially appreciate the matte black exterior and 3 year warranty. I recommend it without reservation.

Cons: The proprietary USB cable has been trouble-free so far, but the connection to the drive feels flimsy and the cord is quite short. That's it for cons.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good with a few minor flaws

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Basics 3.0 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTB105XK3AA Black

Pros: Nice basic drive with reasonable speeds over USB 2.0 and 3.0. Works with Windows 7 and Kubuntu Linux.
3 year warranty.

Cons: Drive goes to sleep very quickly when not being used. A bit annoying but at least it doesn't take too long to spin up. Cord is a bit short, but usable. This drive does NOT like USB extension cords. I have several, including a USB 3.0 extension and every time I try to use one the drive starts to spin up and clicks, like it is not getting enough power.

Other Thoughts: I own the 750 GB model of this drive which is identical in every way except capacity.

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Basics 3.0 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTB105XK3AA Black

Pros: None

Cons: I have had it for a bit and did not need it until now. It appears to be locked up and will not allow you to download anything to it. 30 day policy to return. Out $60.00. Not a happy camper!

5 out of 5 eggsGood Enough

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Basics 3.0 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTB105XK3AA Black

Pros: Very light weight. It is small, which is a good thing in my opinion. Speeds are acceptable.
Plug-and-play.

Cons: The cable is a bit short.

Other Thoughts: Great for simple storage backup, maybe a bit on the smaller side of storage capacity, but I just wanted it for music and a bit of software back up.
