Summary: Got this really cheap in a amazon lightning deal. For the cost of £32.99 it's great. The cable is a bit weird in that it implies that it needs to connect to 2 USB ports...maybe one for data and one for power. But, I've just been connecting the one on my laptop and it seems perfectly happy.
No UK 3 pin plug supplied, fitted with European 2 pin plug

Summary: I had a New Toshiba 3.5" USB Hard Disc Drive 2TB STOR.E ALU 2 as a Christmas Present, purchased through Amazon. When opening the box I was extremely disappointed to discover that it only had a mains adapter fitted with a 2 round pin European type plug instead of a standard UK 3 pin plug.
Summary: Doing exactly what I wanted it to - already used 1TB on video tape back up (60 minute DV High Definition tape takes about 15 minutes but each is 11.2 gb). But what a silly plug. Do Toshiba get any feed back from Amazon sellers?
Summary: A very good looking external hard drive and it feels like a quality item when you hold it. The performance is also very good and it is very quiet (until you turn it off, when it makes quite a loud clicking noise). I only have two slight criticisms.
Summary: Works well, I can store plenty of stuff on here and carry it around and use as and when I need it. If I could afford a bigger drive I would have bought a bigger drive but this was spot on for my needs.

Summary: A good enough purchase...? I was able to move a lot of stuff from my laptop using this device, but it feels a little light if i was to be honest..! Not one to be accidently dropped, so be careful when handling it..?? Thanks...
Summary: Very pleased (eventually) with these drives. Having read reviews on Amazon that these worked out of the box on Macs, I bought 2 to backup my iMac, which I use for work - one on site and one off, swapping once a week.
