Showing 1-10 of 50
Quite a good hard drive in its day but I'd recommend looking for something newer nowadays.

Excerpt: I bought this hard drive in March 2009 as my music/film/work collection had ballooned beyond what my laptop hard drive was capable of holding and it served me very well for a good 4 years. It comes in a neat silver casing that does look pretty stylish.
Excerpt: We all know that we run out of storage space too fast! Luckilly Toshibas drive is large enough to handle a LOT of data. The drive is an external drive with only a USB connection. If you've come across external hard drives then you'll have a good idea of how big it is physically.
Summary: I bought this drive as a backup drive, I have hardly used it, but after 13 months the drive stopped working. The main light remains red and the drive seems to make a ticking sound. Don't waste you money on cheap products like this. Especially as this drive is more expensive than last year!
Summary: Does what it says on the tin. Plug in and play. Vista or windows 7 users may want to reformat it to ntfs for full utility. On the upside it is completely silent in use. On the downside the front panel light is too bright, I had to partially tape over it - overall good value and recommended.
Summary: Loads of space for £70. brilliant. Re-formatted in 60 seconds and had 100 gb onto it in minutes. The blue light is ludicrously bright, but this is hardly a problem since this will be what it is meant to be, a back up drive so turned off most of the time.
Summary: Personally, I don't think you can get better than this on the market right now and I've been through a few. It's not expensive when compared to other external drives either. The first thing that strikes you is the quality of the external casing, the power attachments and even the on/off switch where...
Summary: This product is fantastic value for money, looks good, and performs exactly as it should. I just have one small but very significant problem with it. The ultra bright blue LED that it uses as a power indicator is so horribly obnoxious that I've had to black it out by taping cardboard over the front...
Summary: Last year, I lost 70gb worth of music that I didn't have backed-up - in going through the process of ripping all my cds again, I decided that it would be a safe idea to have it all backed up, and bought this drive - it seemed good value for money and the reviews I had read were generally favourable.
Summary: A well-made external usb hard drive at an excellent price. The enclosure is fanless, and is made of aluminium to take heat away from the internal disk. The separate power brick seems to be a good quality one.
