Summary: On the plus side Amazon returns are fast and efficient and refunded without quibble. The packaging for a hard drive I would have expected better, the retail box is, in my view, not sufficiently cushioned and that is inside the over large mailing box and only secured with a piece of scrunched up...
Possibly the worst external hard drive I have used
23 June 2011
Summary: There are a couple of things that should immediately warn you that this is a poor product: * Rather than supply a regular British power cable, it is provided with a 2-pin European plug and a flimsy adaptor to make it compatible.
Summary: I've had three Toshiba external drives already at various sizes, the most elderly has now failed after about 4 years, but I've been generally pleased. In October last year I bought an earlier model Toshiba 1.5Tb USB drive and it was in the usual very solid alloy case and built like a slender brick.
Summary: I originally bought the predecessor design to the Toshiba 3.5" 1Tb HDD, on the merit of Toshiba being a reputable company. The device lasted 1 year, 11 months, before it failed. I made the mistake of not backing up my files and lost them when the device failed to appear on the computer.
Summary: I bought this recently off Amazon.co.uk. when it arrived I was happy, as it looked nice, performed quietly, no overheating or anything. Just plug and play as with my previous external drives. So I spent about 2 days with copying stuff from my 2 1TB drives onto this 2TB drive.

Summary: Die Festplatte an sich war top. Schnell, und leise! Nur leider ist nach ziemlich genau einem Jahr der USB Anschluss komplett heraus gebrochen. Die Lötstellen haben sich einfach gelöst. Beim abziehen des USB Kabels blieb der Anschluss aus dem Gehäuse einfach auf dem Kabel stecken.
