Summary: I purchased for video backup and it does not work! The videos pixelate and the Mac backup does not work, I have to reformat the drive on a regular basis. I tried to contact Toshiba support via the internet and they NEVER responded! I finally reformatted to PC and use to backup pictures and music but not video. DO NOT BUY THIS DRIVE FOR VIDEOS!!
Pros: High Capacity, Portable
Cons: Difficult To Use, Does not backup Mac, Slow, Too slow for Videos, Unreliable
Summary: Purchased this to hook up to my Time Warner Cable Scientific Atlanta 8300HDC DVR and it did not work. I was asked to format the hard drive (which I did) and the % of unused space never changed.

Pros: Looks nice
Cons: The product states it works for laptops and desktops to store information. I used it to download all my artwork from my desktop. Now I can't view it. Called support - worthless. Need to return it, but will have to pay to have all file removed first.
