1 out of 5 eggsWent through two of these-- no good.

This review is from: HGST Touro Mobile 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive HTOLMX3NA10001ABB(0S03454) Black

Pros: Standard external HDD. Portable size.

Cons: I ordered this hard drive to back up old files, about 600 GB worth. I plugged it into my computer, everything worked fine, i transferred all the files, everything worked fine, and ejected it. When i plugged it back in, it wasn't recognized, and started clicking. I shipped it back for a replacement, did the same procedure again, and it seemed to be working okay.. but not the smoothest sounding. I think it's been about six months, and just this morning plugging in the drive, a horrendous clicking began, and it's not recognized by my computer. I'm irritated i wasted about 100 bucks on this. Fortunately i didn't delete the files off my other computer out of paranoia this hard drive would die on me.... and it did.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent for many reasons

This review is from: HGST Touro Mobile 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive HTOLMX3NA10001ABB(0S03454) Black

Pros: Ok... it's small, USB powered, pretty fast.... but the biggest pro of all...it's FLAT.. yes... FLAT... unlike many other drives of the same genre. Thus they stack. I have multiple drives stacked underneath my Q190 providing space for my Plex Media Server. Well done!

Cons: none

Pros: Looks nice. Compact size.

Cons: Dies quickly. Clicking only a month after owning it.

Other Thoughts: I bought this a month ago to back up some media. Started doing the click of death after 1 month.

5 out of 5 eggsThis small purchase makes me happy every day

This review is from: HGST Touro Mobile 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive HTOLMX3NA10001ABB(0S03454) Black

Pros: USB 3.0 - fast transfer. 1TB storage. Fits in a shirt pocket. I was going to buy a 64GB flash drive for $40, but decided to go with a 1TB portable for $60. I'm delighted, that I can carry around so much - All my Coursera videos, my favorite Linux VM setup, and off course my documents, browser bookmarks, passwords, etc. And this drive is small enough, it doesn't add much weight to my laptop bag.

Cons: It would be nice to have a small case. I'm using an old camera slipcase.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty Decent Little Drive For The Money

This review is from: HGST Touro Mobile 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive HTOLMX3NA10001ABB(0S03454) Black

Pros: Price
Performance
All of my computers recognized it right away
Works fine

Cons: The case -- very inexpensive-looking/feeling (plastic).

Other Thoughts: Irrespective of the cheap plastic case, this drive actually performs/benchmarks quite well. Mine recorded a sequential read speed of 114.1 MB/s and write speed of 106.7 -- 4K random read speed was 0.467 MB/s and write speed was 1.510 MB/s (CrystalDiskMark).

It copied 4 GBs of video files in 59.2 seconds.

These are very good benchmarks for a 5400 RPM $59.99 (on sale) external drive (note: this is NOT the HGST Touro 7200 RPM drive that Newegg also advertises on their website for $79.95).

For comparison, I also have a Western Digital "My Passport" that benchmarks about 28% slower -- and a Silicon Power A80 that benchmarks slightly slower than the HGST (Hitachi) and both were significantly more expensive.

Some have commented that the included cable is short too, and inflexible. The cable is 18.5" long which I do not find "too short." The cable is slightly thicker than others I have seen but not excessively so (and this will probably result in greater durability). I find it flexible enough.

The cable also plugs securely into the drive and exhibits no excessive vertical or lateral movement at the connection point. The soft blue power/activity light is clearly visible but not so bright as to be irritating.

With everything taken into account, I would say this is a very decent drive from the performance perspective. I am not deducting an egg for the cheap case because the performance is superior to others in its price range. I would recommend it to friends (in fact, I ordered two -- one for a friend).
