4 out of 5 eggsdrive size

Pros: Good drive, and Toshiba is great with laptops so makes sense they are good with portable drives.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: To the person who was upset over the drive size. You need to understand that ALL harddrives, internal/external/etc, are this way. A drive that claims 500GB means it has 500 billion bytes. They all take the term giga-byte to mean 1 billion bytes. Windows (and maybe other OSs too) just happens to calculate a giga-byte in a different way. Windows says 1 giga-byte is 1024*1024*1024. That is, 1 KB in Windows doesn't equal 1,000 bytes, it equals 1,024 bytes. So 1 MB isn't 1 million bytes it is 1024*1024, etc and so on. 500 billion bytes = 465.66 GB in the Windows world, so I'm sure your drive is in fact 500 billion bytes. You can't really blame the drive manufactures for different computer opperating systems calculating the lose "GB" term in different ways.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

Pros: Great drive. Quiet, nice indicator light, fast transfer speeds. Using to store Wii Games to load virtually. Works like a charm.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: All external HDDs have "less space than advertised". Every drive take a little space off the top. Check out your other devices before you take eggs off for stupid reasons.

2 out of 5 eggsIts only 465 GB

Pros: Slim, Sleek, No power cord. Formatted to ext3, ext4, and FAT32 without any problems.

Its VERY pretty and SMALL!

Cons: 465 GB. Thats 7% less that advertised. Should be listed as a 450 GB drive. Gave me a lot more fuss that other externals when it came to mounting and unmounting.

2 Eggs because of the deceptive listed size, that really gets me mad.
