TOSHIBA Canvio Desk 3TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive HDWC130XK3J1 Black
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs I have 2 of these, no problems, but minor design complaints 03/14/2014

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Desk 3TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive HDWC130XK3J1 Black

Pros: Using both 2 TB and a 3 TB versions, no problems at all after ~ 1 year.

Works with no installations needed for Vista or 7.

Goes to sleep if not in use (could be a pro or a con!)

Reliablity so far: 5 stars
Features/design: 3 stars
Overall: about 4 stars

Cons: Goes to sleep unless you use a program such as "No Sleep HD" (free) to keep it awake. Not an issue for me as I use it only for manual backups. (no stars deducted, as sleep saves power and might be considered a positive by some).

Odd USB connector is not my favorite for durability, so I leave it plugged into the drive all the time. (no deduction)

No on/off switch. I simply "remove" using Windows "safely remove" before flipping off the power strip the drive is plugged into. (-0.25 stars)

Not quite as fast as advertised, but that's not unusual with claimed USB 2 and 3 speeds.

No obvious way to open the outer case opten without some damage. This is dumb. (-0.5 stars)
