Pros: Very fast transfers over FW 800. Large Capacity storage. Runs very cool.
Other Thoughts: I am upgrading my previous review from March 9. I attempted to use enclosures that did not support 3TB so I ran into formatting issues on Mac. I purchased the Macally G-S350SUAB2 3.5" Silver USB2.0 / eSATA / FireWire External Enclosure, which is also a great product. Nice finish and looks great next to a Mac MIni. It runs cool, and they both work well together. I am very happy with this hard drive.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Toastess TGK486
Pros: Glass material which cannot leach chemicals into the water. Heats water to a rolling boil really fast! Kettle is removable from heating base, making it cordless for movement. Can be set on counter safely.
Cons: Measurement designation is in Liters instead of cups or oz.
Other Thoughts: This is a great electric kettle. It's my first and I really didn't want plastic leaching into my hot water so glass was just the thing. Also, I wanted to easily see inside the kettle for cleaning, which ruled out stainless steel. The kettle does shut off, but you have to fully close the top since the sensor for shut-off is located there. I've missed that a couple of times and it keeps boiling if the lid is left ajar. I use a filter for my water and had no problems with scale build-up on the bottom until recently when I had to use bottled water while replacement filters were on back order. So a water filter might be a good idea.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Lots of space.
Cons: Like some others here I am facing a formatting problem. The drive is only recognized as 801.75GB in Disk Utility on Mac OS X Mountain Lion. I have tried it on 2 Macs. I have just spent several hours looking for a solution and so far none found. I will contact Toshiba tech support on Monday. I will follow up if I locate a solution.
Other Thoughts: Be sure you have a format solution if you are purchasing this unit for use with the Mac OS.READ FULL REVIEW
