1 out of 5 eggs Drive Failed in 2 months 10/09/2013

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Desk 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive HDWC120XK3J1 Black

Pros: cheap price,runs quiet

Cons: no on or off switch
drive failed after 2 months
horrible technical support

Other Thoughts: Toshiba customer support was terrible. The cs rep i spoke with was very rude. I called to say my harddrive failed and her response, what do you mean it failed? i said it crashed and my data is gone. she then told me my files were corrupted and to install and run the nti backup program which would reformat the harddrive like new. i took it to the local pc repair and paid to have my data recovered. i'm going back to iomega harddrives. my 1 tb worked for years with no problems.nyou get what you pay for. that was $70 down the drain.

TOSHIBA Canvio Desk 2TB USB 3.0 3.5

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: is easy to install,
cheap price
runs quiet

Cons: cord is extremely short and falls out of port with the slightest movement.
no on or off switch

Other Thoughts: i bought this for extra storage.i have windows 8 and my computer recognized the harddrive really easily. i just plugged it in and the computer did the rest. i read the reviews and knew not to install the extra software that it came with. i used my computer's backup software program instead.i backed up files from my laptop,my tablet,my camera and mp3 player with no problems. i just plugged them in and dragged and dropped the files i wanted to save.i only had it about 2 months, so i hope it lasts. i know this has a lot of drive failures but 2tb for $70 it was worth the risk. my only complaint is the cord is extremely short you have to place the harddrive right next to your computer. my desktop has ports in the back so i had to buy an usb extension cord to use it because my electrical socket is on the side of the computer desk. if i place the harddrive on the side of the pc close to the wall socket, the usb cord won't reach the ports on the back of my pc. the harddrive is small enough (about the size of a bible) that i thought i could travel with it and my laptop, but because the cord is so sensitive to movement(it falls out the port at the slightest touch) i only use it at home on my desktop.
