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: In the age of broadband internet hard disk space is becoming more and more disposable, with vast quantities of high quality music, videos, photographs, software and games running through our phone lines in a thick, steady stream.

Overall a fine hard disk but could be better.

  • 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.

Dazzling.....

montphilip, Amazon

  • 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.

Buying External HDD for the first time

I. J. Rychlik, Amazon
11 April 2010
  • Summary: To start I want to say that it is my first external HDD so I can't compare it with different products, however I try to describe it as much as I can and hope it is going to be useful. I decided to buy this paricular HDD as its price was very good comparing to other products.

Great value for money

Laura Smith, Amazon

  • Summary: I needed a new hard drive to free up space on my PC and had been looking at 1TB externals for a while. I'm not a computer geek but I knew what I wanted - small, sleek, fast. I also didn't want to spend a small fortune! The Toshiba was a great choice.

cheap and cheerful

a casual reviewer, Amazon
11 April 2010
  • 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.

The Silent External Drive

Gentle Gerald, Amazon
11 April 2010
  • Summary: There is no fan so it is as close to silent in operation as you can get. I was worried about overheating - but it doesn't overheat. It comes with a FAT32 format. I use Windows (not Linux or a Mac) so I copied all the files on the drive, changed the format to NTFS and then copied all the files back.

Not bad

D-London, Amazon
11 April 2010
  • Summary: Had it for a month now. When I first got it, I connected it to my XP laptop. There was no need to reformat it, just plug and play. The annoying blue light is very bright, but mine mysteriously stopped working after one week! The drive still works well though. Very quiet, and doesn't heat up.
