HGST Touro Desk Pro 4TB USB 3.0 3.5

5 out of 5 eggs No problems here... 11/11/2013

This review is from: HGST Touro Desk Pro 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" External Hard Drive 0S03503 Black

Pros: Lots of storage, USB 3.0, plug n play..almost (see below)

Cons: No on/off switch. Cords a little short.

Other Thoughts: After reading about the CRYPTOLOCKER virus I decided an external HD back up was in order. I've had this drive for about 2 weeks now and I have burned about 3 TB to it already without incident. I initially had a problem when writing to the drive where there would be about 5 sec pauses, resume for 10 sec, pause for 5 sec, etc...In this case the fix was to enable write caching for the external drive. I accessed thois option by going to device manager and clicking on the policies tab for this driv.

My OS in Win 7 64bit. I have this drive plugged into a Startech PCIe USB 3.0 adapter card as my MB doesn't support USB 3.0.

Pros: I bought 2 of these drives over a year ago as storage (LOTS of video) drives to compliment my SSD. They are still going strong and are as quiet as the day I bought them. I just bought 2 more used ones on E**Y for about $60ea. These have been running for about a week and I have no complaints whatsoever.

Cons: Not being made anymore. New ones that are still out there are very expensive.

Other Thoughts: These are an excellent buy if you can find them used from a reputable seller.

SAMSUNG 830 Series 2.5

Pros: Price (yeah price..see below)

Cons: Whats not to like?

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace my Intel 40Gb SSD purchased 2 years ago. The price of SSD has dropped considerably since then. I paid $2.50 per GB for the Intel SSD. I paid $0.78 per GB for the Samsung.

I did a clean install with no issues. The drive had the latest FW.
