2 out of 5 eggsAwful

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Desk 1TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive HDWC110XK3J1 Black

Pros: Somewhat works.

Cons: Cable connection.
The cord constantly falls out of the drive. There is no grip forcing you to jingle it until it hits the sweet spot, then let go hoping it doesn't lose the connection.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far so good...

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Desk 1TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive HDWC110XK3J1 Black

Pros: Very fast USB 3 transfer speeds. High quality unit. Sits perfectly on top of an old Mac Mini it's connected to. Dual partitioned for use as a Time Machine for the Mac and exFat to use for Windows 7 backup and general storage for both machines.

Cons: The cord is short...also, the power supply is awkward.

Other Thoughts: Hopefully it'll be working if a computer's hard disk fails...

1 out of 5 eggsDead on Arrival

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Desk 1TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive HDWC110XK3J1 Black

Pros: Nothing

Cons: I pulled the HD out of the box, plugged it into the wall, and then plugged it into the computer. I got nothing; the unit won't even power on. I am in the process of returning it at this moment.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Product

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Desk 1TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive HDWC110XK3J1 Black

Pros: Size of Memory, Price, having it's own dedicated power source

Cons: None that come to mind

Other Thoughts: Great product. I wanted a hard drive with it's own dedicated power source to use in conjunction with a video game console (Wii U). It works great, runs great, and have no complaints about the product. Received the product in a timely manner.

5 out of 5 eggsZero hassle

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Desk 1TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive HDWC110XK3J1 Black

Pros: - Small, sleek design.
- Very fast data transfer and access rate with USB3.0, average ~60-70 MB/s
- Plenty of storage, fast wake-up time as well

Cons: - Included USB 3.0 cable is pretty short

Other Thoughts: The short cable is forgivable since this is meant to be more of a stationary desktop external hard drive (it needs to be plugged into an outlet). If you're a laptop user, you may want to look into more portable alternatives. For desktop users, however, this is a great deal. I'm still impressed by the USB3.0 transfer speeds, I swear this thing is faster than a couple of my internal HDDs. Seems silly, but it's true.

Also, it has an extremely bright blue LED that shines during operation. It's actually so bright that I had to stack a bunch of things around it while I was backing up some files overnight because it lit up my room, haha. Not a con, just a thought.

I should also note I got a very good bargain on this product thanks to a Shell Shocker deal. Thanks, Newegg!

1 out of 5 eggsOn its way back

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Desk 1TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive HDWC110XK3J1 Black

Pros: Was Cheap

Cons: Didn't Work. Bought for Backup. Wouldn't complete without I/O error. Copied large backup from another drive, tried to do a MD5 hash, wouldn't complete. Tried laptop w native USB3, same outcome. Did a few small files OK, but assume more of them and there would be errors. No SMART

Other Thoughts: Son is returning new expensive laptop w bad Toshiba disk this week too, so no more Toshiba disks for this household.
newegg RMA process smooth and painless except for return shipping cost. Wrecks the possible economy of a new drive for backups.

2 out of 5 eggsDefective

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Desk 1TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive HDWC110XK3J1 Black

Pros: Simple to use and get started, no real rocket science here, just plug in and go. Seemed to have good build quality. Unit I recieved turned out to be defective.

Cons: The unit (without cause or explaination) would stop backing up files at 6% from start, then just display "back-up failed". Tried over and over with same result. When restarted, the unit seemd ready to go as if no back-up had been attempted. Then would get hung up again at the same 6%. Other reviews have been favorable so I must have got a defective unit. Toshiba's customer service was awful, prompting the return instead of further attemps to get the unit to function properly. No on-off switch.

Other Thoughts: Newegg was awesome with the return. I got stuck with return shipping, however the return/refund process was very smooth with great communication each step of the way. Toshiba should take a few lessons from Newegg concerning customer service!
