works for me !!5 Posted by: from: on I bought one of the drives wanting to get away from seagte since I heard seagate was bought out by maxtor. maxtor is well known for making less than reliable hard drives which fail within a short matter of time and Im sure if they did indeed buy out seagate seagates good name will soon be ruined also. well... the drive works flawlessly and is super quiet and I run it all the time and have it nearly full. and have NEVER had a problem with it. for those of you who wrote negative reviews ... either you didnt install it correctly or you just happpened to get a clunker. Im going to purchase another very soon.

Does not work on my Windows 73 Posted by: from: on In fairness, recommended only if it works for your machine because this is a great price for storage if it works. It does not work on my Windows 7 OS. Unknown to me at the time of purchase, 2 Terabytes is the maximum Hard drive size for my Windows 7 (on Dell Optiflex 3020 computer acquired Jan 2015). The machine was able to recognize a device was plugged as it made a "kaplunk" sound when plugging or unplugging the USB connector into the computer. Google searching for a fix, I learned hard drives larger than 2 TB will work only if you have a PC with an EFI/UEFI BIOS. Mine does not have a EFI/UFI BIOS. Here's a tech article explaining this. http://www.pcworld.com/article/235088/everything-you-need-to-know-about-3tb-hard-drives.html

Not as Easy as I'd hoped3 Posted by: from: on After researching back up drives and finding this one, I was hoping for a much easier set up and back up along with understanding what I was doing. One time it didn't backup and now it always says something about a backup not completing. I never can figure out if it's from before or if it's something not working every time. At least I feel like it's backing up....

Good Value4 Posted by: from: on I haven't had time to evaluate this drive properly. Time will tell if it holds up, however, it should work about as well as any other drive with the same specs. Toshiba is generally reliable and the price certainly makes this drive very attractive. I was just looking for a basic back up drive so this one appears to be a good value.

Does the job!!5 Posted by: from: Lorton, VA on My 1TB drive was full and I didn't want to buy another one and have to hook up two. I read the reviews about this one and they mostly were pretty good. I have a Toshiba laptop and the Toshiba Dynadock. Probably doesn't make a difference but thought this drive might work well with the same brand. I did not use the backup software. I just used my computer backup feature to set up the backup to this drive. So far so good and no problems.
