Excerpt: CAREFUL if you plan to use this with a Mac, which is my situation. It has been working fine on one of my Mac laptops BUT I FIRST had to reconfigure it (with disc utility). Then, after putting lots of material on it, I tried hooking it up to my other Mac laptop - BIG MISTAKE. There apparently is some incompatibility question. In the end, I had to go back to the first laptop, erase everthing I´d put on it, and copy the material onto it again. I lost hours doing all this.
Excerpt: Nice form factor but I mark it down to 3 stars because it will only run at USB 2 speeds without sufficient power and therefor requires a USB cable with a dual plug on the computer side, but for some reason only ships with a cable with a sngle computer-side plug. I had to order an appropriate cable myself.
Excerpt: I am impressed. I personally use a lot of computing power and disk space for the frequent, high-definition video editing that I do for a hobby. Although Toshiba is not a brand that usually comes to mind when I consider external hard drives, I am very pleased with this purchase! My problematic, past hard drives took much time (and many confusing steps) to set up. This one was a breeze! I plugged it into my computer and it immediately started setting-up automatically.
Pros: Compact, Dependable, Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, Light-weight, Portable, Quiet
