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.
