whatever

The shinny piano black plastic case is prone to getting fingerprints and impossible to open without damage. Out comes the dremel! I'm betting the hard drive is better than the case. We'll see. I recommended it because all my friends are frienimies.

Endorsed Hard Drive for Wii U...

I bought this drive because it is one of the recommended hard drives by Nintendo for the Wii U. I have had it for months and I have had no problems from it since having in it. I only bought it for the Wii U memory expansion (2 TB is the limit for Wii U, for now). It works for me. It might work for everyone else.

Excellent Value

I did a lot of research before purchasing the 2TB Canvio Disk. This was by far and away the best buy for value and $/data unit. Portable units only make sense if you need power by USB vs. a separate power supply. Portable units seem to be mostly built aroudn the laptop form factor so if you are putting the drive in your breifcase often then they make sense. One of the things that impressed me was that Toshiba makes there specs publicly available some of the other manufacturers

Can't pick my own Cloud for backup?

I would like to use the Cloud space I already have, not purchase more from Toshiba! Setup was difficult - definitely not plug and play.

No driver support

Crashes when copying lage files in Windows 8. Could we get some decent driver support or what? It's a 2TB drive, of course I'm going to be copying large files.

No security slot?

POSTED BY: Disappointed , Minnesota
Overall rating: 1 out of 5 1 out of 5

Like all laptops, I expect all external hard drives to have a security slot so that by attaching a computer cable lock you can prevent someone from walking off with it. But apparently not this one! It's such an easy and extremely inexpensive thing to design into a product. I can't believe it doesn't have one.

Bad hard drive

The first day I started using the hard drive I was heard to strange noises in certain occasions.

Drive keeps giving errors while trying to move data or pictures over. After reformatting it, it still will not move pictures over. A waste of time and money!

Failed after 15 months

POSTED BY: Sierran , Grass Valley, CA
Overall rating: 1 out of 5 1 out of 5

My Toshiba 2 TB Canvio failed after 15 months. It was never moved after I hooked it up, so there was no reason for it to fail other than poor materials or workmanship. Since it was my backup drive I took it to a computer repair place and they were not able to retrieve my data, so I lost all the files on the drive. The repair tech told me not to get another Toshiba - apparently the repair shop sees a lot of them. Don't buy this drive, it is unreliable.

Worked for a few weeks, then nothing. Dead. I wasn't in the market for a paperweight. Avoid like the plague. My first Toshiba product. My last Toshiba product.

This unit was running just fine for a while on my Mac for my Time Machine back ups and then suddenly died. The drive could not be repaired. On the bright side, it is covered by warranty, but I had to pay for return shipping and all of the hard drives I am looking at to replace it have terrible ratings.

3 Days Fail and no warranty

POSTED BY: Spy , canada
Overall rating: 1 out of 5 1 out of 5

Used for 3 days on my samsung TV as media center, then started doing clicking sounds and is no longuer recognized on media center or ps3. Recognized by laptop but useless now for the use I bought it for. Got to deal with warranty which part number says it's only a in-store system warranty. Being i had set it aside for more then 30 days I probably won't get any replacements. Go Lacie or western digital for eHDD.

No Apple Drivers

POSTED BY: meanuncledon , WA
Overall rating: 1 out of 5 1 out of 5

I just purchased this from Best Buy and I am taking it back as the thing doesn't come with software or drivers which will work with Apple iOS. When I checked the website for drivers they don't have anything. I thought this was a good value but when something doesn't work it is just worthless. I would not buy this for anyone reason.
