I've had two of these 2TB drives for about 3 months. I'm about to buy a third. I build video-heavy websites so I need LOTS of capacity. And I need strong throughput. But, most importantly, I need reliability. A hard drive crash can result in a lost day or two. I've always had good luck with Toshiba products as they have rarely let me down. I back up huge files to servers and the Toshibas are reasonably fast at that (using USB-2). I have not yet used the eSATA but do not expect much of an improvement over USB. I've not used the eSATA because the product doesn't ship with an eSATA cable (minus 1 star for that). I carry these drives between work and home every day. They each get plugged into 3-6 different PCs every week. No problem. Love the power on/off button. Haven't had one of those since the old Maxtors. I would not mark the Toshiba off much for shipping as a FAT drive. I generally re-format my drives when I buy them anyway. I like the stand-up thin profile design as I can fit a lot of them together. Very little heat or noise.

For the overall rating i give it 3.9 out of 5 just b/c of the fact its has a capacity of 1.81 TB drive which has all my 3 computers backed up on it. and the faster Esata port which i love. and has its own backup program which you can schedule backups. and also the shier slim size of the guy when compared to other brands. Cons...................................................... and yes having all this drive space on a fad 32 format is very annoying for me too. and also i have had to turn it off and back with the boot up of windows. just to get it to auto detect it. Overall .................................................................... i have not had any problems with the drive other that whats stated above. bottom line its a good price for a large storage unit. me personally i would try and find one which comes in a different format such as NFTS. if you don't know what that is but need storage space you'd be happy with it.

just read all the reviews on the 640GB drive. Its exactly the same as this drive. basically it doesn't work reliably, needs to be turned off and back on again after restarting your computer before windows can find it again, and frequently just goes to sleep for no apparent reason making backups unreliable if they even happen at all.

Toshiba PH3200U -1EXB doesn't work on Mac OS X

Mac users beware of this external disk. The box says it supports Mac OS X. But, it does not allow reformatting, so you can't make it Mac OS X HFS Extended (Journalled). You are stuck with FAT 32, which is a pretty low-level format for a large disk like this. I don't understand why Toshiba crippled this disk.

Horrible Product

This is an awful external drive. As stated, it shuts off and you have to constantly power it up. It also likes to ruin your data by forcing you to format if you happen to switch between USB and eSata connections. It's amazing how far a little QA goes. Do not buy this drive.

The Backup Software included with it is very bad software that will leave you unable to restore files... Yeah - the whole purpose of the drive and it can't do that. Plus it does shut off every 5 minutes unless you are churning it. Don't walk- run away from this product.

The product has been reialable. The unit has been on line and running 24/7/365 and haven't had a problem out of it. Easy to use and setup. Note did have to go to support and download and run a patch to stop the Auto-Shut-Off that the drive was shipped with.

I have purchased not 1 but 2 of these HD's and have had nothing but trouble right from the get. USB or E-Sata it don't matter. Intel core or AMD, laptop or desktop, JUNK!!! Don't let the sleek design fool you, I will never purchase another.

Horrific product. Purchased to back picture files for my marketing job. 97% of the photos on the back ups are corrupted when the back up is restored or the file reopened.
