2 out of 5 eggsOops. Disappointed.

This review is from: HGST Touro Mobile Pro 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive 0S03559 Black

Pros: It sort of works.

Cons: The USB cable connection to the hard drive is flaky. The drive frequently disconnects from my laptop, seemingly when I touch anything anywhere on my desk. I don't know whether I should trust my backups, or not.

Other Thoughts: Used with my MacBook Pro / OSX 10.8.

I've got a long relationship with HGST products, and have had very good success with their products over the years. This is disappointing.

2 out of 5 eggsNot enthusiatic

This review is from: HGST Touro Mobile Pro 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive 0S03559 Black

Pros: Seems to work well with my Windows machines.

Cons: Getting to connect to my MacBook is a constant struggle. Usually requires wiggling the connector at the drive. Since I purchased it to use with my MacBook, this is frustrating.

Other Thoughts: I've long considered HGST to be a preferred source for all kinds of hard drives, and now wonder if recent management changes are having subtle down-stream effects.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Portable Hard Drive

This review is from: HGST Touro Mobile Pro 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive 0S03559 Black

Pros: This drive is compact, and feels study/well built. I appreciate that it is covered by the WD warranty. So far I've used this drive for extra file storage and have had no problems at all.

Cons: Glossy finish doesn't hide fingerprints, scratches, or dust. However, this doesn't really concern me, and it doesn't effect the function of the drive.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not work with windows 8

This review is from: HGST Touro Mobile Pro 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive 0S03559 Black

Pros: none

Cons: Does not work with windows 8 or windows 8.1 preview. Therefore useless to me. I contacted customer support and they seemed totally unsympathetic.

Other Thoughts: Never buying another western digital product.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Little HD

This review is from: HGST Touro Mobile Pro 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive 0S03559 Black

Pros: Low cost, Fast usb 3.0 (~85MBs writing to drive, ~110MBs copying from drive), 7200RPM. Works great.

Cons: Included usb 3.0 cable is less than a foot long. Bundled software sucks - don't install it.

Other Thoughts: The review below commenting on HGST's RA service might be fabricated. Warranty Service is done under the supervision of Western Digital (who owns HGST). Even more suspicious - any new RA's such as DOA drives are handled directly through Newegg. Anyway, don't let that review poison you - this is a great hd.
