Summary: I could have gotten it replaced under warranty, but had some data on it that we wanted to see if we could recover on our own. I cracked the case and took out the 2.5 inch drive and it still works in a hard drive dock that I have.
Pros: small, USB3.0, portable
Cons: This went bad after about 2 years and gave a USB error when it was plugged into any computer via USB3 or USB2.

Summary: pretty disappointed when toshiba doesn't support to set the password for the hard drive, toshiba only provide password for cloud backup. it would be better if i can set password for offline usage too. the read/write speed is as expected. the only downside i experience is the password thing
Summary: I have it in a vented closet, and it makes the closet shake. I would absolutely not put that on a desk. My other Seagate Expansion disks where dead silent compare to this one, but they died early (1 year) and were slower.
Pros: The drive itself (inside) is a fast big beast: heavy, but warm (51C steady) and noisy. This is a 7200rpm workhorse that farts.
Cons: The casing is just too light to dampen and tame the noises of the beast. I keep having temperature alerts on my disk monitor tool, my other disks are at 38C while this one is a 51C.
Summary: Ok for big space to save. But some how tricky to connect and read movies from TV and Blueray as I use to do normally with others 1gb external harddrive. 'Till now no body knows why?...even blogs... The theory maybe is "it requires more energy..." But don't believe me.
Pros: Super large capacity, fast speed (if using USB 3.0). Decent price.
Cons: Enclosure doesn't permit adequate cooling of the hard drive. Internal temperature after being on for 3 hours while transferring files was up to 55 degrees C. I used a 4" fan blowing air towards the lower vent slots to bring the temperature into the low 40s. I was also disappointed that it doesn't...
Summary: It does its job, no complaints. I gave it 3 stars because I should have realised it's a manual drag-and-drop, item by item by item. I should have bought an external drive that automatically backs up material.
