sleek

Manojkumar Saranathan, Amazon

  • Summary: for some strange reason, i was very suspicious. the 500Gb was cheaper than 400Gb. The warranty information on the site was very vague and unclear. It was not even clear if the part# was right as there were mismatches between this and those on the toshiba website.

Good but shaky

Shadow, Amazon

  • Summary: I have used this drive for about 4 weeks now and it is a cool little drive...I have the 500gb. The USB power is excellent and its portability are fantastic. My only gripe about this drive comes in the form of reliability.

Nice External drive, works great. Not crazy about the backup sofware

Reversemidasman, Amazon
8 March 2010
  • Summary: This external drive is nicely styled and shaped. Generally around the same dimensions of other portable external drives available. It doesn't come with any cover or carrying case, so you will need to purchase that separately.

I could not get customer service to email or call me

Trish Y., Amazon
9 January 2010
  • Summary: I had an issue with backing up "files and folders" and needed tech support. I went to the web site and it is a joke. I went around in circles trying to get information to help me. I emailed them and expected at least a verification email that they had received my request. Nothing, nada.

Unit is great, but software is not

T. A. Rooney, Amazon
20 November 2009
  • Summary: I installed this using the built-in software which comes on the drive. After trying it for several days, I decided to stop using the software and using either Windows 7 built-in backup tool or Microsoft Sync Toy 2.0 (for XP machines). But the drive itself is slick and fast. Definitely recommended.

Nice unit but......

Musicman "Musicman", Amazon
19 November 2009
  • Summary: My only concern is with the way the unit stores the data. I had hoped for more of a click and drag type interface. I use my for music as well as for backup and there is no way I can find, to move songs individually. That is why I purchased the device so I am somewhat disappointed :(

works as advertised, not sure about the software

Game Fan, Amazon
13 November 2009
  • Summary: I used this on an XP laptop for back up. Its a no-hassle, portable, plug in device, very compact, no noise. It feels very solid and sturdy. I'm not such a big fan of the included software as both the automatic full back up and limited file back up convert to an image file.

I wish it REALLY had password protection

D. Templeton "DT", Amazon
17 August 2009
  • Summary: For the price, it's a good little drive and it's worth the money. But the sole reason I bought this drive was to store sensitive data, and it was advertised as being a password-protected encrypted drive. It is not.
