I needed to buy another storage space and this seemed as an good option. First seen on Amazon, then a special offer on ebay arrived, so it was about 20 bucks cheaper. The country I'm from, this Hard Drive ain't even available and much bigger ones (with same storage size) are like 150 bucks, so it was really a bargain.
The HD itself is compact and looks pretty solid, atlough I haven't ever used in hard conditions. Definately looks better than other ones. At first I was wondering if the "circled_squares" lighten up if plugged, but they don't. I don't consider this as con, at least it don't hurt my eyes... :-)
There would be no cons at all, but after exploring the drive, you'll find some unuseful suff I mean SW of course... I haven't gone through it yet, but I assume I'll just delete it.
Well, that's about all I can think of, reviewing this product. Sorry if I missed what you needed, but that's life ;-)
I BOUGHT THIS TOSHIBA 1T PORTABLE FOR MY FRIEND BECAUSE HE ASKED MY TO BUY THIS FOR HIM AND HE HAS ONE THE SAME AT HOME.THIS IS A GREAT PRODUCT EASY TO USE AND SMALL SIZE SO YOU CAN CARRY WITH YOU ANYWHERE TO SHARE WITH YOUR FRIEND PHOTO ,MOVIES,FILES....IF YOU HAVE TWO HARD DRIVE TOSHIBA THE SAME SIZE WHEN YOU PLUG IN YOUR COMPUTER YOU WILL SEE TWO HARD DRIVE ,BUT IF YOU DO THE SAME THING WITH TWO WESTERN DIGITAL MY PASSPORT ESSENTIAL THE SAME SIZE 1T YOU ONLY SEE ONE HARD DRIVE IN YOUR COMPUTER.THIS IS THE DIFFERENT BETWEEN TOSHIBA AND MY PASSPORT ESSENTIAL
1 Tb of space for a portable hard drive is an excellent product from Toshiba.
very easy to carry, small size, small weight
Plenty of storage, easy to use software, easy to install... literally just plug and play. More than enough storage for me, I really only needed 250-500GB, but this was as cheap as those sizes in internal HDD's. The external feature is very useful.
Even though it is designed as a backup system, files can be manually clicked and drop copied with no problem as any other drive showing on Windows.
This is by far one of the best, smallest and most portable of all the external storage devices out there. It is very lightweight which makes it easy to store in a laptop bag. It is very sturdy and seems to be built very well. There is no sound or movement of anything internal when shaking it or moving it around. It also is powered ONLY by the usb connection which is excellent since you don't want to have to plug it in and your laptop too. Also it has a very fast access time and is constantly available when you logon to your system. It is just another lettered drive and is very nice for a 1 TB external.
