This review is from: TOSHIBA 1.5TB Canvio Basics 3.0 Portable Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model 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.
Pros: Seems to work as a USB3 hub.
Cons: Fast Charge port doesn't work for iPad. It was the whole reason I purchased the dang thing.
Ports are upside down.
Other Thoughts: I'll keep it since it works for charing my phone.READ FULL REVIEW

Good transfer software/adapter.

After fresh Windows install, drive continues to deteriorate.
Other Thoughts: Bought 2 drives, the other one seems fine. Hope to get a replacement quickly from customer service.READ FULL REVIEW
