  • Summary: TOTALLY DISAPOINTED!!! I bought the product to be shipped to my country, Ecuador. I was very excited about receiveng it, but when it arrived, and I unboxed it I felt so disappointed and cheated because I paid for a 2TB hard drive, but instead of it I received a 500GB inside a 2TB hard drive's box. This is a fraud!!! I want my money back!!!

Technology going backwards....DON'T BUY!

TW, Staples

  • Excerpt: The software for this hard drive is terrible. I had an older HP hard drive w/ 320 gb that would scan the hard drive for any new pictures, files, etc since the last time I backed up my hard drive. This process took my literally under 30 seconds. The Toshiba Canvio rewrites all my files to be backed up (only 4.5 gb of files), and it takes about an hour. Since computer technology should be getting faster and not slower, this external hard drive should not be bought.

  • Summary: I purchased this product because it was a great value for the price. I reviewed some of the comments about the product before purchase. A couple stated problems with the product but I thought that maybe the bugs had been worked out. I purchased it and received it in about a week. At first it was great, there were no problems. Then the problems began with it not being recognized on my computers at home and at school. I am sending it back today.

Absolute Junk

Tony, Staples
26 September 2014
  • Excerpt: I purchased two of these units for work in March of 2013, a 2 TB and a 3 TB. The 2TB died in three months and the 3 TB died after 16 months. Had to spend $500 dollars to recover the data. I've bought Seagate and Western Digitals that lasted for 4-6 years. If you buy one, better set aside some money to spend on data recovery.

  • Summary: Received the Toshiba on schedule. Tried several times to install, nothing followed the simple instructions provided. Finally got my computer to see the unit, but any attempts to open or explore resulted in a need to format error. Tried to format without success. This unit drug down my computer and locked up several times. Finally called Toshiba and after a short wait got a tech.
