"Value for money and does the job! No software required."
13 May 2013
Pros: Very easy to use & to configure to iMac via disk utility. It is small and robust & does not need an external elect. supply, just USB unlike my 2 previous WD essential ext drives that have totally failed. Basic storage for pics/music/documents.
Cons: 1st time 4 hrs to back up via Time Machine. Lack of software makes use more intuitive unlike WD where you can see and ID files quite easily so retrieval may be a bit more difficult - but they are there!
Summary: This little (and I mean little) drive is awesome! It's about as thick as my finger. Ordered it on Black Friday for $50! This thing blazes through file transfers in USB3. Works great after 5 months of ownership. Couldn't ask for more.
Summary: I bought this Toshiba hard drive on sale and it was a great buy. It has plenty of storage and I love that it has drag and drop capablity. No software to install. Almost as small as my cell phone. Fits in my purse easily for portability.
Summary: So far so good. Pro's - No external power required Fairly Fast especially at USB2.0 Quiet - Absolutely no noise Con's - None, other than having it go on sale for about half price right after I purchased it.
