This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Basics 3.0 2TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive HDTB120XK3CA
Pros: Didn't come with any bloatware
Simple looking drive
USB 3.0 speeds
Cons: I bought this drive from FutureShop - they had bins and bins of them for $89.99 all ready for Boxing Day sales in December 2013. Like others who bought this drive, mine has died after only 6 months of use. When I tried to get warranty support (it supposedly has 3 years), it doesn't even exist on Toshiba's Canadian website! I successfully generated an RMA through their US website, but an American customer service rep. told me that I wasn't able to process through Toshiba USA. When I called the Canadian 1-800 number for support, they refused to believe that I purchased the drive in Canada, because it is an American part number.
In other words, the facts:
1) Toshiba storage products are NOT quality;
2) Toshiba does not stand behind their warranty guarantees; and
3) Toshiba does not give a hoot about Canadians.
Needless to say, I will be avoiding Toshiba anything from now on.
Pros: Great price, solid performance, high quality heat spreaders that keep the temps down.
Other Thoughts: Highly recommended.READ FULL REVIEW
