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.
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.
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 :(
Summary: Delivered on time, in good condition and was as described. No problems so far............Takes a while to transfer data as it's only usb powered and 5400rpm..........It was very good for the price in comparison to the other competitors.
Summary: I have been using this for a month now and its flawless yet. Its small enough to fit in your pocket etc. The only problem is that the USB cable is short and if you have to move your laptop even an inch, it is either dragged or hangs.
Summary: So far this 500GB hard drive does everything I need it to do and is very easy to use. Have used it on several different computers with both Vista and XP with no problems. Hard drive was detected and setup for use quickly with no need to install any additional software.
Summary: This is the way to go. I have tons of pics and music on my pc and it is all safe and secure now on my external hard drive. It worked like a champ. I had to restore my computer to factory settings because of some glitches and once I did I transferred everything back with ease.
