    Save Ten Bucks -- and Your Peace of Mind

    Customer review by PerfesserBear

    5.0 stars by PerfesserBear

    Most places that sell computers, also sell these external hard drives to back up your computer's data. If you have a laptop, need to back up your at-work computer, want to store your desktop files off-site, or just need to transport HUGE amounts of data, you NEED an external drive. Your computer’s hard drive is at the mercy of mechanical breakdown, electronic failure, lightning damage and viruses. I personally had an external drive and my primary S__g_t_ drive fail in my big personal laptop. The external drive I replaced with a Western Digital My Book Essentials 3TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive from Walmart; the primary internal required a new drive, also made by WD. For several years, I’ve used a 500 GB portable hard drive from Toshiba to back up my at-work computers, and it’s never given me one second of trouble. In fact, it’s saved me a couple of times. I showed it to the big boss a few months back, and he thought it was a good idea; in fact, he told me to get a new one and test it thoroughly (on the company dime, of course). I try to be frugal, even spending other people’s money; and Walmart’s under-ninety-dollar price had a lot to do with selling the idea. I’ve been carrying the Toshiba Canvio USB 3.0 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive in my backpack for two months, now. I have backed up both of my at-work computers, and a ton of data from my home machine, and it takes it all without complaint. It’s very fast, needs no AC connection (it sips all the power it needs from the USB cord) and is small enough to fit in a pocket. Better yet, it weighs about 3-1/2 ounces. If you have an older computer that uses the USB 2.0 standard, don’t worry; this drive will still work just fine; just not as fast as it does running USB 3.0. I use it with an older desktop and two laptops with USB 2.0; it runs fine. I bought a SIIG SuperSpeed USB 3.0 2-Port ExpressCard Adapter from Walmart for my home laptop, and the Toshiba Canvio USB 3.0 1TB USB 3.0 SCREAMS! File transfers and backups are super fast. The only problem is that you need an extra AC power adapter for the SIIG device, since ExpressCard doesn’t carry enough current to run a hard drive. Not a failing of the drive or the adapter, just how the ExpressCard standard works. So if you want to preserve your peace of mind – and save ten bucks off the price of a dubious-quality S__g_t_ drive – get the Toshiba Canvio USB 3.0 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive from Walmart.

    So far so good. Only have this hard drive for 2 weeks but it does exactly what it is supposed to do, store media and data files. Very easy to drag files right into this hard drive and my laptop, which is a few years old, recognized it immediately. Price wasn't a bargain bin price but it is worth it to me.

    I got it in the mail in just 2 days and I imeaadtly hooked it up to my computer,it was instantly evident in the "My Computer" window..I installed the software only afther contacting Toshiba as the quick start user guide is pretty basic and gives no clue at all as to how or what to download as far as programs the H.D. had to offer.Seems so small to hold all that data and it's loaded with anti-drop ,bumps ,just about anything you can think of and it still keeps working.Much better than my Western Digital My Passport 1tb hard drive with it's overly complicated softwaare,I mean the user manuel for the W.D. EXT HDD is 74 pages long. Get this drive,you wont be disapointed and at this price you'd be crazy not to pick up such a well made,3yr wrty. and all.I'm very happy.

    Can this hard drive run on USB power or does it require it's own plug to work? Also can it work with a desktop? I'm new to the 3.0 USB thing?

    • It is USB powered. Can be used with USB 2.0 or 3.0.

    • It only runs on USB power. I've copied from both an Imac and a Windows 7 desktop PC. Current PC has only USB 2.0 input which is compatable as well, but wanted the much faster USB 3.0 so it wouldn't be outdated any time soon.

    • The Toshiba Canvio USB 3.0 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive runs off the 5 volts of the USB cable -- it sips 'juice' from your computer. I use mine with desktops and laptops all the time, and it's very reliable. USB 3.0 is actually the fourth version of the USB standard available. USB 1.0 was already obsolete the day the drives became available, so the manufacturers brought out 1.1. USB 2.0 was much faster, and 3.0 is faster still. There are actually more wires in the USB 3.0 cable, but the drives and computers set up to take advantage of it are 'backwards compatible' with USB 2.0.

    • It works on USB power. I'm not using it on a PC, but I imagine the DVR I am backing up is similar.

    • The drive is USB powered. You can connect it to any USB port, as the drive is backwards compatible. Of course you will get the fastest operation with USB 3.0

    if i buy this hard drive, can i transfer my current hard drive in its entirety to this new drive?
    by greylock1
    • yes you can but i wouldn't recommend it. I bought this drive less than 6 months ago, transfered my entire hard drive from my computer to the hard drive and it has since died and I have no way to recover my date!

    • It comes with EaseUS software which will let you copy an entire HD (hard drive) or a single partition to another drive. The data is saved in a proprietary format, that is, you won't be able to pick and choose data from it, just restore the whole thing. This would be handy in case of a catastrophic HD failure, you could then restore to the state your HD was in when you created the image. If you are planning to use this to replace your current hard drive, and then run your PC by booting off this external USB HD, I'd think again. It would make more sense to replace your existing internal HD with a bigger one.

    • Using the included backup software you can backup files, folders and the full system, which is what you're looking to do. You say "transfer", which to me normally means replacing an old drive with a new drive. This isn't going to replace an internal drive.
