Connection came loose. Almost lost everything!

Pros: None

Cons: Made very cheaply.

Other Thoughts: The 3.0 plug in came loose internally from the board it is connected to. I had to take apart the casing, then tape down the plug onto the board to read all the data and copy it to another computer. For 12 hours, I watched as my data slowly got transferred, while the drive turned on and off, got corrupted, had to be recopied, etc. Finally, I got everything off of it and threw the stupid thing in the garbage where it belongs.

Great product

Pros: This a great buy for the money. Found it for a very good price.
Not the fastest of the external drives but it's fast enough for me.
Good overall finish and compact size.
Very easy to use and very reliable.

Cons: A bit slow but not a show stopper at all. I don't want it for constant direct access after all.

Other Thoughts: I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

plug and play

Pros: easy storage

Cons: none but read other for your info (the more you know or at least dont find out the hard way)...

Other Thoughts: i have heard with no trial on my part that loseing power to the drive for example accidental unplug or power failure with no backup will cause the device to fail im not trying it to find out but you can solve this by doing what i do and keeping it pluged into a laptop with a battery or haveing a battery backup on your computer power and being careful around the cable while on... again i have not personally tried to cause a power fail to find out, that seems like a pointless waste of money im just aware of the possible problem

won't buy another one

Pros: hard drive OK

Cons: They built the USB 3.0 connector onto the hard drive interface board. If the drive goes bad you have to throw the entire device away. Cannot use the case for a new hard drive.

Other Thoughts: Case is a cheap design. Don't waste your money.

Good Portable backup

Pros: Small/slim portable design
USB 3.0
1TB of backup space is plenty for me

Cons: None really, zero issues thus far. I have left it connected 24/7 basically for a month now, with only a couple restarts.

Other Thoughts: I needed a new drive to backup my music and files to, I backed up around 333GB s so far to it without issue. My old Seagate Goflex 500GB was acting up, rather have a new backup before it is bad. The Goflex was only 2.0 as well, those 3.0 adapters are too rare and expensive now.

Good Work Horse

Pros: Slim, lightweight, and reliable. It's quickly seen by all my systems from win 2k to win7 64bit. It goes into standby quickly which keeps power consumption down (important for laptops, a pain for desktop use). Wakes up relatively fast. I've used a 500gb version for several years, and find this 1tb unit to be much the same. usb2 speeds are fine, and usb3 are better (obviously) but all xfer speeds are within expectations. The cable is plenty long enough for backup & transfer purposes. If you want it hooked up continuously and set out of the way, it might be a bit short, but for my use (data xfter & backup)... it's fine.

Cons: All portable drives are a bit pricey compared to a replacement drive. Getting the drive in a nice case with a warranty commands a bit of a price differential, but it should be a bit less.

Other Thoughts: There may be faster out there, but my experience with Toshiba has been good and I stick with brands that I know... will likely buy a 2tb when the price point drops. Good units! Always the chance of a defect, but buying thru Newegg protects for short term, having a warranty provides a year's protection... put a few thousand hours on the drive in the first year and if it hasn't started to fail, then it will likely last 10's of thousands of hours, just as any internal hard drive will.

Best drive ever, so far.

Pros: - This is literally the best external storage I've ever used.
- It's very fast (almost as much as an SSD)
- Very small and it looks good.
- Works as expected
- Solid and not fragile.

Cons: - the wire is a bit small.
- doesn't work on usb 2.0

Other Thoughts: This drive is not optimized for desktop use. It's also a bit expensive for what it is.
