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: 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: 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: I've been looking for a drive to go with my new media player and I was planning on buying a Buffalo 1Tb drive but typically as soon as I went to buy it the price had gone up by about £25 so I looked at this as an alternative and I haven't been disappointed.
