1 out of 5 eggsNoise

Pros: It looks solid, I guess

Cons: I just got this in the mail, just plugged it in and backed up some files. It makes the grossest, most annoying sound I've ever heard a computer device make. I'm 24% into my backup progress and I cant stand it anymore, I'm in line on Newegg customer support to discuss a return, looking forward to getting my money back.

Other Thoughts: I'm really disappointed about this, my WD 2TB failed after 3 years and the warranty only came with 2, I was looking forward to the 3 year warranty after seeing all the others only come with 1. But instead the drive is loud and obnoxious and completely intolerable.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding deal on a great product!

Pros: Fast, roomy

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Bought for my Xbox one and went from having 98.3% of my hard drive space used to having 9% used. Works fantastic right out of the box. Have noticed slightly faster loading times since moving some games to the drive also. Cannot beat this deal!

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Looks nice online

Cons: External hard drive would not connect. Tried troubleshooting with device manager. Tried downloading drivers from Toshiba site - but they directed me to customer service. Cust service shuffled me off to Tech support - availa on chat only. Waited half an hour - three times - for a tech to initiate chat but it never happens. Have had good luck with Toshiba in the past - but it looks like my luck ran out.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: As the previous reviewer stated, fast & quiet. Mine has been in service for about 2 months without issue. If it lasts for 3 or more years it will be well worth the investment.

Cons: None thus far.

Other Thoughts: It doesn't hurt that it has a sleek, appealing appearance.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet, reliable USB 3.0 external drive

Pros: Fast, quiet

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: A reasonably priced, reliable drive. No problems so far. USB 3.0 interface makes it much faster than my old USB 2.0 drives: it used to take 90 minutes to backup a 160 GB VM, but with this drive it takes only 15 minutes.

You could probably save a few bucks by buying a USB 3.0 enclosure and installing a 3.5" drive yourself, but I'm too lazy.
