    Rated 3.9 out of 5★ by 73reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Easy to use, straight forward Easy to use, computer has no problem recognizing the hard drive, no need to install or format the drive. Open the box, just copy of my files and backup. 08/10/2012
    Rated 3 out of 5★ by Not for everyone. This is a nice, compact unit. The problem is that it incorporates a back up program. In order to use it simply as an external hard drive and eliminate the back program you must format the drive. After I downloaded the files I wanted into it, I decided to check it on my other computer. That computer would not recognize the Toshiba hard drive. Conclusion: If you only have one computer and want to increase capacity, this unit is OK. If you need to back up files because you are worried something might happen to your computer, or because you want to take files on a trip or the office, the Toshiba is not for you. 09/22/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellent for the price The automatic backup function is what really got me to buy this product. No external software required. You just plug it in, tell it what kind of files you want it to back up (music, pictures, emails, etc.) and it goes through your entire hard drive and backs it up. Later, should you find yourself needing to put all that information back onto your computer, there is a restore function that will place all the information back onto your computer for you. I'm not sure if it puts it all in the same folders and everything, but I imagine it does. Great price for 500 GB too, though I wish I would have gone ahead and got the 1 TB drive for only a few dollars more. Fabulous product and will last forever! 08/29/2012
    Rated 1 out of 5★ by This Poduct failed all expectations I purchased this product on a Monday, but it would not connect to my PC, so I returned it on Wednesday for the same product. This one connected to my PC, but would not work. After 15 minutes it had only copied 1.7Gb of data and it was making a loud, mechanical screeching sound. I returned this one yesterday (11/09/12). Attempting to use this product cost me a total of FOUR 42 mile round trips to Walmart. The price was good, but it ended up costing me over 160 miles of travel.I gave the Toshiba brand a chance, but will never use any of their products ever again. I should have read the Toshiba Website reviews before putting my money on the counter. Most of their reviews are negative, too 11/10/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellent Bought two of these for my iMac had to reformat that took less than a minute. I paid less than what is listed online ($30.00 each). My local Walmart has these in their clearance section. If you see them at $30 each you need to buy them. 10/14/2012
    Rated 1 out of 5★ by Don't waste your money on this Don't waste your money on this. I tried this with two different computers and it wasn't recognized on either, but when I went to Toshiba's website for help it only offered an update...for a fee! Never heard of a company that charged for updates to their products.Should have known better than to deal with Toshiba since I bought a computer from them just 2 months ago which has had problems since day one. Wish I hadn't missed the time period to return it. Major waste of money. To those who've had no problems all I can say is keep your fingers crossed your luck holds out.Not worth the time or effort with this one. Go with a different brand. 01/03/2013
    Rated 1 out of 5★ by Very cheap....and there is a reason why For only $50, I was very happy with it. It looks cool and sleek, and I like blue. Then I realized it was a hard drive and not a decoration so I actually tried it. Unfortunately it did not work.... You could hear the poor little guy trying, but to no avail. Surely there would be some help from Toshiba, but alas, no support for this device.DO NOT BUY! 08/22/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by This drive worked great and was so simple I ordered this drive wanting to back up my PC and it was so simple to use.. Just plug it in and it automatically installed the needed drivers and software. Just had to select the kind of backup I wanted and the software took care of the rest. Not only that but I had some files on my old PC that I backed up and wanted to move to my new PC and that restore process to the new PC was just as simple as backing up. Great product Highly recommend it. 02/06/2013
