      After considerable research, I discovered this particular model of Toshiba hd. I returned an earlier version I got at Amazon because they model they sent me lacked the shock resistance that was advertised; they claimed they sent me their "new and improved" model that I could have gotten for $20 less elsewhere. Best Buy was the only place that still had a Toshiba that offered a shock resistance and solid hd at a great price. Even though it is only 1T compared to comparably priced drives offering 2T, the construction and dependability made this a no brainer choice. Plus it is plug and play, so no software glitches to deal with. Very pleased. Thanks, Best Buy!

      I bought this item on Deal of the Day. I did read some reviews before purchasing, but it had a great rating on many reviews and I had planned on purchasing it because it was such a great deal. When I received the package, I thought they shipped the wrong item, because the box was so small. It turned out, the hard drive is much smaller than my Samsung Galaxy S5. It's tiny. I absolutely love that it's so compact, because it's easy to take anywhere. In addition, I uploaded all of my photos from my old and new laptops (10 years worth) and it didn't even make a dent in my memory. Love this product.

      The Toshiba Canvio 1TB Hard Drive is an excellent product that is simple to use and very efficient. Just plug and play! Plug the Hard Drive via USB cable to your computer and within seconds a popup menu appears on the computer monitor allowing access to the device. Just drag files onto the file. The smaller the file, the faster the transfer but a large file moves pretty quickly. For example a 1 GB file will transfer within 10 to 30 seconds. A larger file will still transfer within a minute. A very compact unit that easily fits in one's back pocket. Excellent product and would purchase again.

      This Toshiba Canvio 1TB is awesome. I selected (white) as it matches my Xbox One. I love this Hard Drive, it transfers games FAST, even faster than the Xbox One. It was a very economical purchase, and the space it provides for Gaming, on the Xbox One is essential. I play a lot of different Multi-player games, so I love having them loaded on this hard drive and ready to go. Highly Recommended by an Xbox One Gamer.

      Yes I would recommend this external hard Drive, connects to the USB port, which is Super Easy....! No password or set up needed....! Go to your Drives and you'll see the External Hard Drive, Double Click to open, Make your own files...No format to follow....Do what you want... Drag and Drop Or Copy and Paste...So EASY ....This is a lot easier then the little USB flash drives that require you make username and password, follow their format, etc., NONE of that Stuff Needed....!

      A Good Compact Hard Drive

      The hard drive is compact & holds 1TB of info. My old computer holds 32GB only. So this is huge. You can connect it to the computer thru the USB port with a cable, which is provided. Most people use the cloud to store info, but I like a hard drive. You can slip it into your pocket or purse and carry it with you wherever you go. This hard drive serves its purpose well.

      I bought this external drive just over a year ago. It has been in constant daily use and still works flawlessly! I don't bother with the included software to manage the storage, but use my own system. Despite my very intensive read/write patterns of use, it has never developed any issues at all. It looks and works as if brand new.

      I needed a backup drive and a portable hard drive as I utilize a lot of different computers. This drive fits the bill and you don't have a lot of fluff added up front to take up your much needed space. I've included a picture of it working with my laptop.
