this product does not work 12/4/2010 10:32:09 PM

Pros: none.

Cons: the piece will work for about 3 uses, then needs to be formatted. of course, formatting it over and over loses all of the files i put on it. which really takes away from the whole purpose of having an external hard drive.

Overall Review: i am in afghanistan, and since it was shipped to my buddy in the states first 9so he could put some stuff on it for me), it didn't arrive till almost after the 30 days i had to return it. so, once i got it and realized that it didn't work, and that all the files my buddy put on it were gone, it was too late to send back.

i don't know if i just got a bad product out of a bunch of good ones, but i wouldn't suggest this to anyone.

it's completely useless.

BEWARE 12/1/2010 4:14:18 AM

Pros: It is pretty. Toshiba was very quick to replace my broken drive with another drive that broke in a couple of weeks.

Cons: 1st drive after a week of use decided that instead of files it only wished to provide me with cyclic redundancy errors. 2nd drive let me sort my music collection for 2 weeks then the contents of my "sorted" folder vanished. Went through all the routine data recovery actions to no avail.

Overall Review: The track record speaks for itself. Even if I just happened to get two bad drives out of a trillion, I can no longer trust these products to serve their intended purpose.

Use caution when dealing with this drive!

Had to RMA 11/23/2010 12:44:16 AM

Pros: Large capicty, very portable, runs cool, & comes w/ 3 year warranty. My Windows 7 machine recognized it out of the box.

Cons: Stopped working after 3 months of use.

Overall Review: I had to RMA my unit back to Toshiba. RMA went smoothly & received a replacement 2 weeks later. I am still unsure about its reliability but I would back up any data as you will not be able to retrieve it if it fails on you. I also recommend saving all packaging material as it will make it easier for you to ship it for a replacement if you ever need to do so.

Probably the best external on NE 11/21/2010 2:26:50 PM

Pros: Hasn't died yet; one of the most common problems with most externals I see are dying within 1 week - 2 months.
Doesn't need an external power source. It's powered directly from the USB cable.
No significant heat problems yet.
Vibration is very very very minimal (probably within normal limits).

Cons: Finger print magnet although definitely not a deal breaker.

Overall Review: For $99, I'd say it was quite a steal. Preforms very nicely, while up and down speeds I wish could be faster, but for it's longevity and use without the headache inducing software I'd say it's a sacrifice that is well worth it.
The cable is a tad short, although it depends if you need or want a long cable, I personally don't mind it, probably because of how my desk is organized.
I have never had a heat problem with this external, even after leaving it hooked up for hours by accident.
It vibrates a minor bit, and by minor i mean hardly detectable unless you pick it up and try to determine if it's working.

"Metaphysical product perfection" - Wired 11/19/2010 10:10:08 PM

Pros: The number one feature of this HDD is no power cord considering it's high capacity.

I was able to find this product somewhere else for $99 dollars which was an excellent purchase price considering the above features.

This is about the highest capacity hard drive you can buy without the power cord.

Very slim and compact.

Rubberized grip.

Quiet, cool, durable, stylish.

Cons: Product is false advertised. It does not actually have one terabyte. (1024 GB) It has only 931 GB.

The smooth black finish wears down very easily and quickly.

Overall Review: Hey, you are not going to find a Hard drive this small, with this much capacity, without the need for a power cord. Buy it now.

I have dropped this product while it was operating and no data was lost and no damage was made to its operational functionality.

Best Buy!!!! 11/17/2010 8:13:08 AM

Pros: -Small case size; easy to carry
-USB Powered; no AC adapter needed
-Large 1TB Capacity

Cons: -Don't have more of these.........

Overall Review: This hard drive is a great buy for those who have plenty of data and want an easy way to bring it along on the go. I am replacing older 3.5" A/C powered USB hard drives, which are smaller capacity, much heavier and have to be plugged in for power. Due to the large amount of data I have as an IT consultant, I give these drives a good testing from day one. I just wrote about 500GB of data to the drive today and the drive is working fine after writing to it for hours. This is definitely the drive to purchase if you need portable, high capacity storage.
