5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio 3.0 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTC605XK3A1 Black

Pros: Day after receiving the unit, I used the Windows 7 backup software to perform a backup on my new desktop ( USB 3.0 ) and my wife's laptop ( USB 2.0 ). Mine took less than 15 minutes and my wife's less than 30.

Solution obtained.

Cons: None

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio 3.0 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTC605XK3A1 Black

Pros: None this post, read my previous post for input...

Cons: Formatted for NTFS, not FAT32 like so many other Ext HDDs... Loaded it w/over 200+GB of data to use w/my PS3... FAIL UGH, my fault for not paying closer attn @ first.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes As One Would Expect It Too

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio 3.0 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTC605XK3A1 Black

Pros: 500GB, USB 3.0, No need for power supply, Compact, Lightweight but yet has a solid build feel to it, runs quiet & cool, unique white led, as most I've seen/owned are R/G/B

Cons: Unique cable end, not sure if its due to being USB 3.0, (my 1st, so not familiar w/the look of the cabling) but seems its proprietary to this Ext HDD, minor inconvenience if you're like me & tend to swap out Ext HDD's regularly, super glossy finish might be a problem to those who don't like to see fingerprints, lol

Other Thoughts: As a gift, great, no complaints from me, but if I were to go & buy a new Ext HDD, the plug might keep me from going w/this model again...

3 out of 5 eggsA Little Disappointed

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio 3.0 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTC605XK3A1 Black

Pros: Small, Compact & Cheap compared to other prices since the flooding

Cons: Very short cord & SLOW......... This thing is very slow in comparison to today's technology. Spinning up to wait for transfer to start is the wort part of how slow it is. This is through the 3.0 USB on a very fast computer. The transfer rate is ok once it gets going. I have to think the slow spin is not related to the USB port since it does the same on both 2.0 and 3.0 ......... The transfer rate is nothing to write home about but ok once the drive is moving. I will stick to Western Digital in the future. I don't feel very good about putting anything important on this drive. It just feels untrustworthy when dragging & dropping on the fly.

Other Thoughts: I have several external hard drives and 2 of them are old technology but they are faster than this thing running on 2.0 USB. This mostly in reaction time and not transfer rate but its not a whole lot faster there. I mostly own Western Digital & have never had any problems with them. The 3.0 WD I purchased recently puts this one to shame. I purchased the Toshiba to transfer my files on the older ones and since all the little weird spin up & down issues I moved the files back. I don't trust this one. I plan to go to the sight and see if there are any updates for it. I am hopeful there is! I'm very disappointed since I have owned several Toshiba brand items and this is the first one I have had something negative to say. This comment is in no way towards New Egg... They are always great! The 3 eggs are for the product only.
