5 out of 5 eggsGreat External

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Desk 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive HDWC240XK3J1 Black

Pros: 4TB, 7200rpm, usb 3.0

Cons: That hdd sound when its accessing.

Other Thoughts: Bought this external for my xbox one since I ran out of space and transferred all my games to it. 3.6GB usable and with all my games transferred, I still have 3.2GB free.

The 7200rpm definitely shows its stuff when loading games especially GTA 5 because on the xbox one internal it takes forever to load this game.

The hdd is a bit on the loud side when loading games, but not super loud like how others make it seem. It's a hdd, not ssd, its going to make sounds.

Also the blue light on the front that lets you know the drive is accessing is actually pretty bright. I was a bit surprised. Kind of lights up my entire game room. Lol

Overall I do recommend this. I love WD drives and this is the only drive I've ever bought for myself that isn't WD. Anyone who wants their games to load faster on the XB1, get this drive!

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Desk 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive HDWC240XK3J1 Black

Pros: Amazing, fast, and easy to use!

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: Would be nice to have enough power ran through just the usb and was smaller, sad to be limited by technology still. One day my friends....one day.

3 out of 5 eggsAs fast as it is loud

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Desk 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive HDWC240XK3J1 Black

Pros: The drive itself (inside) is a fast big beast: heavy, but warm (51C steady) and noisy. This is a 7200rpm workhorse that farts.

Cons: The casing is just too light to dampen and tame the noises of the beast.
I keep having temperature alerts on my disk monitor tool, my other disks are at 38C while this one is a 51C.

Other Thoughts: I have it in a vented closet, and it makes the closet shake. I would absolutely not put that on a desk.

My other Seagate Expansion disks where dead silent compare to this one, but they died early (1 year) and were slower.

1 out of 5 eggsNoise

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Desk 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive HDWC240XK3J1 Black

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!

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Desk 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive HDWC240XK3J1 Black

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

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Desk 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive HDWC240XK3J1 Black

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

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Desk 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive HDWC240XK3J1 Black

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

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Desk 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive HDWC240XK3J1 Black

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.
