excellent USB 3.0 drive 01/20/2012
This review is from: TOSHIBA 1TB Canvio 3.0 Portable Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model HDTC610XK3B1 Black
USB 3.0 speed matches or exceeds that of internal drives connected directly to SATA port. Just make sure you're plugging it into a 3.0 port (the ones with a BLUE divider piece inside). Price for 1 TB is excellent considering recent hard drive market extremes, and hopefully still coming down in near future.
Backward compatible with USB 2.0 (that's actually a 'Pro' for portability but, hey, you WILL get pitifully slow USB 2.0 speeds when plugged into a USB 2.0 port).
I dunno if it's compatible with OS/X Lion or Beaver or Muskrat or Hippopotamus, but heck it's probably not compatible with unknowledgeable USERS of any closed proprietary O/S. Who's fault would THAT be?
