5 out of 5 eggs 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

Pros:

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.

Cons:

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).

Other Thoughts:

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?
