Product did not work

VincyQT, Amazon
31 October 2012
  • Summary: I bought it to replace my laptop hard drive that crashed. Took my laptop and this new hard drive to a local computer repair shop only to be told that not only was my current hard drive toast (which I already knew) but that this replacement hard drive was also toast. To say I was disappointed would be putting it mildy.

  • Pros: small form factor
  • Cons: This drive failed after less than two months of moderate use. I was unable to recover important data and Toshiba was quite unhelpful.

Maybe it's good

Walmart
22 June 2010
  • Summary: Maybe it's good, but I never got it to work on my Mac. According to guidelines my computer is new enough and should read but it does NOT. I've tried everything, gone though all the trouble shooting. My husbands Dell will read it but that does me no good. Beware Mac users.

Did not work out for us

Walmart
15 June 2010
  • Summary: My husband bought this hard drive. There was something wrong with the format of it and wouldn't allow us to save any of our files on it. After calling the customer service and having them tell us there was a format issue, we just returned it and bought a different brand.
