2 out of 5 eggsClicks after 4 months of use

Pros: Lots of storage space.

Cons: Broke after 4 months.

Other Thoughts: I bought this as a backup/upgrade for my older Western Digital external drive, but 4 months later it started making clicking noises after being connected and my computer wouldn't recognize it most of the time. The Western Digital's still working..
Never dropped or used in shaky environments. I am very disappointed.

5 out of 5 eggsReally nice drive

Pros: It's small, it's built well, and after a couple of spills while active, it's still working fine with no clicks or glitches. I'm very happy with this drive. It also runs silent, and very cool. I keep it in a little neoprene case, and it never gets hot, even when accessing movies, etc.

Cons: Comes with some software, but you don't have to install it

Other Thoughts: As with all externals, get a small case for it, yes it increases the size, it also exponentially increases the protection of the drive.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great size, works right out of the box and great price.

Cons: Says 640 gig but with all their bloatware it's actually around 600 gig.

Other Thoughts: I use this to take my archived movies files with me and use it with WD Live TV and it's just awesome. I recommend these two products if you're a movie buff and like to watch them on your big screen TV.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Good!

Pros: The Hard Drive is good and I'm able to view a movie without copying it to my Laptop. It even multi-tasks. The drive looks neat and elegant

Cons: Nothing really

2 out of 5 eggsSent back

Pros: Looks pretty (matched my red/black msi, which was super awesome). Short cable is convenient for storage/taking with you and when using it with a laptop. Good price.

Cons: Maaaaad slow. Also, seriously bad sectors to the point that I had to format the whole drive (twice) and lost all my files. Once I restored some files, like movies and music, it would only play some files all the way through and not others (error message 10 min in). Also, it wouldn't let me copy some of the files over to my laptop. HUGE disappointment.

Other Thoughts: I assume the drive I got was just defective, but from what I've read elsewhere, it seems a lot of people have had this problem and that the drive is known to be really slow anyway. I sent it back for a refund to newegg. Getting a couple samsung HDDs instead...hoping for the best!

2 out of 5 eggsQuestionable product

Pros: Small, sleek, and light. Looks very sharp.

Cons: The drive worked great for about 1 week then, started receiving errors saying the drive need formatted. I have tired it on multiple computers and the all recognize it but can't but still get same error. I have lost all data on drive. Do not use as primary backup as it doesn't seem reliable.

Other Thoughts: Newegg was great very quick shipping. I am going to see if they will let me return it.... probably not though. Toshiba customer service is terrible.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good Price:Memory ratio - stylish, small and quiet.

Cons: Seeking speed is somewhat slow after thoroughly populating the drive.

Other Thoughts: I don't use these drives for backing up case-sensitive material. I wonder if security would be a problem with these drives...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy!

Pros: > Currently, the biggest hard drive space for the money
> Cool looking shell/design
> Lightweight
> Quiet
> Does not appear to get too warm
> 3 year warranty (confirmed on Toshiba's website)

Cons: > Out the box, it's formatted as FAT32
> Short USB cable (12")

Other Thoughts: To quickly convert file system to NTFS (rather than reformatting the hard drive), do the following:

Backup default files or other files first.

Open a Command Prompt Window (start\run\cmd or Start, All Programs, Accessories, Command Prompt)

In the command prompt window, type:

convert drive_letter: /fs:ntfs

For example, typing convert D: /fs:ntfs would format drive D: (your external hard drive) with the NTFS format. You can convert FAT or FAT32 volumes to NTFS with this command
