5 out of 5 eggsSo far it's perfect!

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Basics 3.0 1.5TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTB115XK3BA Black

Pros: Everything seems to be a pro; at least for me. It runs smooth, quiet, fast, is compact, and I've had zero problems. This is also allowing me to condense a load of data and etc; leaving me more room in my office ;) I was skeptical at first after seeing problems others were experiencing. After having owned mine, I have zero doubts. Quite a few people change the operating software to what they want from what I've read. I left the original operating system in mine and have had zero problems as well. I just didn't feel comfortable enough to mess with the system. I hope this unit continues to perform as well as it has.

Cons: none so far

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Basics 3.0 1.5TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTB115XK3BA Black

Pros: I bought this product when I was preparing for college so I could have a high storage external device and it does exactly that. I haven't had any problems with it so far.

It transfers pretty fast, which surprised me at first. I transferred over 50 gigabytes of video over to it and it took just as long as it would take for an internal storage device.

Also, I don't see why people are complaining about the cord length because it is seriously not that bad. I hardly see why you would need a cord any longer.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Basics 3.0 1.5TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTB115XK3BA Black

Pros: I needed a portable hard drive for various reasons, mainly because I keep filling up my computer's hard drive with media and I have multiple computers to bounce my data between. This does all of that easily. It takes a reasonable amount of time to transfer data. The higher the file size, the more time it takes. I moved about 300 gb onto it as soon as I opened the box and that took about an hour, which I felt was pretty reasonable. The physical size is very nice, much smaller than I was expecting. It's not small enough to fit in my pocket, but as a female who wears female clothes, you can't fit anything in your pockets!

Cons: So far I haven't found any

5 out of 5 eggsGood product so far

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Basics 3.0 1.5TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTB115XK3BA Black

Pros: I got this a week ago but just used it two days ago. Below is my evaluation of this drive:
1) Fast delivery
2) Plug & play
3) Fast transfer and fast boot up, as compared to my previous HDs
4) Generate much less heat. This may due to RPM of 5400
5) Neat & small

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I am waiting for another to get two more drives for my data

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Buy

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Basics 3.0 1.5TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTB115XK3BA Black

Pros: Very Sleek, Simple No-Nonsense product. No stupid software. Attach and use. Excellent performance. I was using with Bit locker on fly encryption and avergae write speeds were 65MBps+. without BL encryption it would be faster. Finally excellent price

Cons: Nothing I found so far

Other Thoughts: Havent used with Mac/Linux but it should work fine

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Basics 3.0 1.5TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTB115XK3BA Black

Pros: None.

Cons: Died just after the 30 day mark so I could not return it to Newegg, USB cord is short...like really short and is not universal. Western Digital is more expensive, but just spend a few extra bucks and you wont end up with all the headaches.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor USB plug design

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Basics 3.0 1.5TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTB115XK3BA Black

Pros: Good price and value. USB 3.0

3 out of 5 eggsAllow Power Manaagement

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Basics 3.0 1.5TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTB115XK3BA Black

Pros: Small, quality build, reasonable price

Cons: Automatically goes to sleep by itself. Mac doesn't wake it up fast enough for Time Machine.

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive for Time Machine backups. If left plugged in, then the drive's internal power management puts the device to sleep. This version of sleep doesn't respond quickly enough for Time Machine.

The solution for me was to allow my Mac to put the drive to sleep. That way, the OS knows to wake it up before it tries to write to the drive.
