Failed After a Year

Heath M., Newegg
27 May 2015
  • Summary: Worth the trouble for me.
  • Pros: The drive itself is well constructed. The adapter to the external power and USB is garbage. After my drive broke my instinct was to take it apart. The symptoms were it was not showing up in my disk management or being registered by my computer; though, the drive would turn on and spin when i conn...
  • Cons: Failed to work thanks to the SATA to USB adapter inside. Easy fix - read pros.

Mac users BEWARE!

Zak Freedman, Amazon
19 March 2015
  • Summary: Not really made for Mac's... C'mon Toshiba, it's 2015 and Apple is the largest company in the world. Why make mac users jump through hoops just to use your product? After installing the software on the drive it still would not back up my device.

Flimsy and Finnicky

Albert T., Newegg
2 February 2015
  • Summary: Actively going to trash the Toshiba brand name when it comes to hard drives after today. Seriously had it with their drives.
  • Pros: It's small. It's self-powered. And it was cheap.
  • Cons: Don't you dare ever, ever, ever accidentally unplug a Toshiba external drive without properly dismounting it or you will never, ever see your data on it ever again. Accidents happen, and you can count on Toshiba to fail your data.
