Pros: I installed this for a friend and she was happy with the build performance and price point.
Cons: I always like to overclock and stress a machine before I hand it off... I couldn't really do that with the MB and CPU I had, but I didn't notice any CPU bottleneck playing Crysis 2.
Other Thoughts: I knew this wasn't an APU, but to verify easily, on the picture it clearly says you need a graphics card in the bottom left corner so I made sure to get one with my order.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio 3.0 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTC610XK3B1
Pros: Nice storage space, low power usage, decent transfer rate.
Cons: I thought the drive failed while I was at a family event transferring pics to all my extended family, turns out the USB port was what was faulty and all my data is intact. I bump 1 egg not for the faulty USB port, but for the case being extra difficult to pry open without breaking it.
Other Thoughts: I thought I could pop it open and re-solder the USB connections on the PCB, but 1) they were closer than my smallest tip, and 2) I damaged the case so badly trying to open it that now I just need a new enclosure.
I still like the drive and trust this manuf, and honestly, I can't complain about the failure because I pretty much plug-cycle this thing 6x a week for almost 2 years.
