HGST 500GB Touro Mobile Pro External Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model 0S03105 Black
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Looks nice, Portable, and fast when it works..

Cons: The cable like many have already mentioned is pretty dang short for my taste but I just sit it on top of the chassis and it works for me.

The biggest issue I have, however, is the inconsistent transfer speeds. I mainly bought this drive because I back up and transfer large files between multiple machines and it still takes over 5 minutes to transfer 10gb files! For the first gig of transfer it will have speeds of up to 150-160mb a second and then after that it drops down to 32mb/s or below... Definitely not what I was expecting.

I was trying to find online if anyone else was having a similar problem and haven't been able to recover much information on it. Maybe its just my drive.

Other Thoughts: Its a nice looking drive aesthetically but for my first usb3.0 drive, I am greatly disappointed.
