Fast, functional and friendly little external HD
Very good value; its small size makes it perfect to take it along with you, and it hooks up easily and immediately to your computer. I've tried and connected it flawlessly to Linux (Ubuntu) and Windows 7 and XP machines, without a hitch; it does come with backup software but I don't use it for that purpose so I haven't tried that. It's running very fast if you connect it via a USB v3 connection but since it's backward compatible it's still reasonably fast running over an older USB 2.0 connection. I use it over two weeks now, to comfortably shuttle a full working drive loaded with a massive stack of Portable Apps (if you have a small netbook, this external is a real space and life saver) and all my working documents back and forth, which is traveling a lot lighter than schlepping a whole computer around. I'm very satisfied with it.

DO NOT BUY THIS!
It is perfect as long as it works, but it dies within 2-10 months and you lose all your date if you didn't back up. I happened to own 5 of Toshiba Canvio series portable drives. Different models. They all died very quick. I kept exchanging them in Toshiba Direct. They won't give you money back, you have to exchange it on their product.

Very Fast Plug and Play!

Verified purchase

This usb 3 hard drive is a winner. I plugged it in and Windows 7 recognized it immediately. It's also a speed demon. I put about 60 gb of files for storage on it and within seconds it went right onto the drive. Plenty of space, this portable hard drive is a must buy, especially for the price!

Great hard drive to back up your basics.

Verified purchase

I didn't need a 1T hard drive to back up all of my files. This one was perfect. I still have tons of GB's left. All I needed this for was my pictures and songs because my internal hard drive is on its last life line..

Great for backups and picture storage

Verified purchase

My PC had tons of pictures that we uploaded over the years and was really slowing things down taking up all that memory space. After I plugged in the Canvio and moved all the pictures to it, the PC is much faster. Its also great for doing backups of your PC files, it even has a software program to do automatic backups. Definitely worth the price.

Great Device for the Price

I have owned this device now for almost 2 Years and have had no problems with the Device. I keep it in my Backpack where it get bounced around while walking and has not failed me yet. The device has a Great Rubber wrap around it to help absorb any shocks or bumps that it might take. I have accidently dropped the device(not recommended) and it has worked perfectly. The USB 3.0 is great for the faster R/W Speeds. Excelent Device, I am actually thinking about getting the 1TB since this one performs as well as it does.

It does what it claims it can do.

Verified purchase

It's an inexpensive way to back up your critical files and has plenty of space for home use, and probably a small business too. I backed up 2 of my 3 computers (XP & Windows 7) and still have plenty of space. One drawback though, when you create a boot disk, it doesn't tell you that it has completed the task and keeps telling you to insert a disk. I ended up with several disks until I caught on... DOH! All in all, I'm satisfied and would recommend it...money well spent.

installation was really easy

Verified purchase

It's early to give an excellent rating, but installation was easy and quick. Toshiba makes good products from my past experience, so I expect this product will work very well for our needs.
