5 out of 5 eggsSolid Drive

Pros: Not a single problem since day 1.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I think this drive is going for about 15-20% less than what I originally paid for it, but I'd *STILL* recommend it!

5 out of 5 eggs1 year on

Pros: A year on and this drive is still 100% dependable and hasn't skipped a beat, so much so that I just ordered another one to have as a travel buddy. Read speeds are no different than the day I bought it.

Cons: Not really a con and as I stated before the cable is a little too short. However, I just ordered 2 6ft cables so that I can place them both in a better location. The short cables are good enough to use when going from on PC to another when needed.

Other Thoughts: Don't know why these aren't selling faster on newegg as $67 is hard to beat for such a handy little (and I mean little) drive.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat a hard drive!!

I am using a StarTech 2 Port USB 3.0 PCI card. Results seems to be a little better than the 1st poster.

This drive is tiny, I knew it would be small but the pics on the net do not do it justice, it looks like a smart phone and weighs nothing in comparison. I have another 2.5" laptop drive in a portable enclosure, it weighs easily twice what the Toshiba Slim weighs.

There would be no issues running an operating system from this drive, or restoring back ups, at 100mb/s + its exactly what the doctor ordered.

Cons: The USB 3.0 cable is very short, in fact I barely have enough slack to plug the drive into the PCI slot under my Graphics card and rest the drive on top of my case. This in no way warrants taking an egg off.

Other Thoughts: I haven't used the bundled software yet but I will probably give the backup program (NTI) a go sooner or later, you can just move the files off the drive in order to partition as you see fit. There is also a program for password protection, but I am not going to mess with that, I have enough to remember as it is.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

Pros: Great speeds in real world usage, avging 100 MB/s to 150 MB/s moving large movie files from a 1TB Seagate Barracuda SATA III.

CrystalDiskMark (Default Settings (5/1000MB)): Seq - R:90.65 W:90.57, 512K - R: 35.19 W: 46.84, 4K - R: 0.512 W: 1.291, 4K QD32 - R: 0.581 W:1.282

Drive is TINY and unlike some other external HDs, this one has a USB 3.0 Cable that is of decent length, although it could be longer. I also really like the black "graphite" finish on the drive with the brushed aluminum finish.

3 Year Warranty vs. 1 Year on many other drives.

Overall very happy with purchase as I got it with with an Instant Rebate and Promo Code on New Years Day.

If you are looking for an ultra portable drive with a great warranty and fast speeds, this is a great drive to go with. You can't throw it off your roof or leave it under water like some of the ultra durable drives, but for size/speed this drive can't be beat for the price.

Cons: Bloat software is on the drive, but is easily deleted or moved, nothing tries to install when plugging in the drive. This was not enough to remove an Egg because some people may actually use the software.

Other Thoughts: CrystalDiskMark shows transfer speeds well below what I am seeing in real world usage in sequential, so I'm not sure what to say about that, but I wanted to include the benchmark for reference using the specs below.


CPU: Intel i5-3570K @ 4.2ghz
