5* Another Brilliant hard drive from Toshiba
Reviewed by Anonymous on 02/03/2015
My 5th Toshiba hard drive as they have never let me down. This new design is smaller and looks nicer than the old one and is so extremely quiet. It was as simple as plug and play so can't fault it at all. Not sure what all the gripes about the cable supplied with these hard drives is because as far as I'm aware they are just standard USB 3.0 cables, and if it is too short (it is over 20cm) you can buy a new one from ebay for a couple of pounds or just get an extender.
Basically a brilliant hard drive for a brilliant price can't moan at that.
5* Great little external drive, but warning - not a cheap way to get a 2.5" 2TB HDD!
Reviewed by Anonymous on 04/09/2015
This is a very nice little external drive. Since it's based on a spinning drive, it's not particularly light, and not particularly fast, but you of course get an awful lot of storage for your money! The cable is short, but I like that in a portable drive and it means the cable won't end up a tangled mess in your laptop bag if you're going to be transporting it anywhere.

A word of warning - I thought I was being cunning when I noticed that this was significantly cheaper than a 2.5" 2 TB HDD and bought it thinking I could crack open the case, remove the drive to put into a laptop, and then reuse the case to house the smaller capacity drive being taken out of the laptop. Indeed, you can find a few videos on YouTube of people opening up older Canvios to do just that. Unfortunately, what's inside here is not a standard 2.5" drive with a USB3.0 to SATA adaptor, unlike older Canvio portable externals! What's here is a very tall 2.5" drive, with a directly-attached USB3.0 interface!
