    Awesome Drive, Be Aware of USB 3.0 Requirements

    We got this drive for backing up AVCHD movies from our new camcorder (1080HD takes up a lot more room than 720SD). The drive works like a charm and does everything it's supposed to - it's fast, quiet, and has plenty of space. Works fine with USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports.Some things to consider:* This is a USB 3.0 device. You can use it on USB 2.0 ports, but USB 3.0 devices are less tolerant of out-of-spec components. Some older USB ports cannot handle the signal and power requirements of a USB 3.0 device. For example, I can plug this drive directly into my HP laptop docking station (USB 2.0) and it works like gold. I plug it into the USB ports on the front of one of my desktop PCs (USB 2.0, connected to the USB header on the motherboard) and all the drive will do is come on, make a clicking sound, and report an error in Windows (not enough power going to the drive). I plug it into a rear USB port on the same desktop with an extension cable and it works like... 5/5 Prime Meridian (USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Toshiba Canvio 1.0 TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive - HDTC610XK3B1 (Black) (Personal Computers) We got this drive for backing up AVCHD movies from our new camcorder (1080HD takes up a lot more room than 720SD).

    Does what it's supposed to, awesome warranty - Don't be swayed by negative reviews, as ALL HARD DRIVES WILL EVENTUALLY FAIL!

    You will see tons of poor reviews for this product. Most of them unfairly point to the drive as an issue, but instead I believe they reflect on a lack of foresight from the user ("lost my data!"), inability to navigate a website ("visited 3 websites, impossible to find how to file a warranty claim"), or just the bad luck of being part of the small percentage of people who receive a DOA drive (that happened to me too, but read on).I've purchased over two dozen of these Canvio drives (sizes anywhere between 500GB and 1TB), mainly because they work just fine, and the warranty covers you when they don't. All drives will fail, that's the nature of the beast (really, they do; just google Google's case study, or BackBlaze's "How long do disk drives last?" article). Portable drives tend to fail a bit sooner, mainly due to them being subject to more "movement" than the 3.5" drives sitting inside your computer case: moving them while in operation (which is why the original iPods had... 5/5 Borgeano (92691) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    For no reason, ejects itself

    Revising five stars to one. It worked perfectly fine for month and a half. I thought I was one of the lucky ones.Different story now. What can I say that others haven't already ... the drive "ejects" itself all by itself. One moment it's there, the next it tells me I ejected it improperly. What?! I didn't touch anything! Files then became corrupted. Of course, I'm two weeks past the return window. Having read the horrid tech support reports, I don't even want to deal with it at this point. The manufacturer comments attached to some reviews here merely suggest you try it on a different computer. No thanks. The least they can do is have you contact them directly to resolve the issue.Research of no help, but plenty of horror stories. It's PC Windows. It's Mac OS (all varieties) It's drive failure. It's the USB connection. It's the USB 3.0 cable. It's the USB powered hub. It's the screwy software included. It's from waking up from sleep. It's a mini-power glitch... 1/5 ElmoTheCat (El Verano, CA USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
