Unreliable

  • Summary: The price is nice for 3 gigabytes. But it randomly disconnects and reconnects to my computer. It's also very load. Simply put...
  • Pros: Price for 3Gs.
  • Cons: Unreliable (it randomly dissconnects and reconnects). It's also very loud.

  • Summary: It is nice and compact, not bigger than my hand. It holds 4 times a much information as my larger hard drive. There is no power cord because it is powered by the usb port. This makes it easier to travel with and not have to worry about the different voltage in other countries. It was a good buy for the price.

  • Summary: Haven't really had this drive very long, but it seems to work O.K. Perhaps not as zippy as my other 2TB External Drive from Samsung, but not totally sure. Seems like a good buy for the money.

Basically ok

  • Excerpt: Got the PC/Mac version and hate that I have to install software to write to it. I have some systems I use that don't allow installs and am not sure if this will be an issue. Also, it froze on big file copy on my Mac and wouldn't remount until I went to a PC and ran the disk repair on it. Fine after that but don't trust overwhelming it with multiple copy requests at the same time.

Android and Apple Only It Appears

G. Cox "Shanghaied", Amazon
22 May 2014
  • Summary: I can get this to work on my Samsung Tab 2 Android tablet, but not on Windows 7 or 8 computers. I've tried everything I know. I think it isn't intended for Windows computers - only Apple and Android operating systems. So I am being overly generous by giving it three stars. I cannot find anything useful on the Toshiba website - certainly no support. I have tried three times and nobody knows anything at all.
