Don't waste your money on this cheap piece of junk!
Stephen M. Wimmer
Anyone using these drives more than a few times will know the cable is crap and will not connect half the time and disconnects sometimes while using.
Michael
The USB cable is short and proprietary on the other end, so you can't just replace it.

BAD USB CABLE DESIGN

Do these people not test their own stuff or what? Anyone using these drives more than a few times will know the cable is crap and will not connect half the time and disconnects sometimes while using. It is that poorly designed... I have the old model and had no issues at all.. now they come out with a new model with a crappy cable. Doesn't matter how good/nice the drive is if you can't use it half the time.

I hope these reviews are a wake up call to the company to actually test their product before going to production.

I bought this drive because the capacity was right and Toshiba has a fairly good track record. The main problem with it so far (<8 hrs in) is that the connector continually falls out of the drive end while I'm transferring files.This is my first experience with USB-3 and it may just be a weakness of the mini-socket spec, but its making me livid. I probably won't send this back, but I wouldn't recommend a friend buy one either.

a few things on this hard drive:

* we're disappointed with the usb3.0 - it works fine with a 3.0 port on our newer computer, but we can't play movies off of the hard drive through a 2.0 port on our older computer without having issues

* it's extremely touchy - moving it even a little while connected will cause the connection at the hard drive to separate and therefore interrupt your data flow.

After a careful review of all the warnings posted here, I went ahead and purchased the 1tb model because of the convenience that it's portability promised. A couple of reviews said these problems were, of course, addressed and remedied by Toshiba..and I really wanted it to work fine. So I ordered one.

Every problem listed in this topic was included in my order. The USB connection, while snug, will still disconnect at the slightest movement. Seriously, if I wanted a stationary deskbound drive, I would have purchased one...what I wanted was portability, for use in the field and on the sofa..this is not that unit.

Even worse, the speeds I'm getting are no faster than, and possibly slower than the transfer speeds I regularly get from my 5 year old Iomega USB 2.0 drive. I will admit that this is my first and only USB 3.0 accessory, and I cannot swear that the 3.0 on my new Toshiba laptop is not at fault, but everything says it's working fine, and when I first used the Convivio I was getting short, initial burst of high speed, but they slowed down to a snails pace in the matter of a few seconds, and now on the second day of usage, I'm no longer even get short burst of high speed.

Very, very disappointing in all respects. I'd return it, but I'm traveling for a good while in one of the remoter parts of the world (the purpose for which I bought this) and I'm stuck with it. Oh yeah, Toshiba support was particularly worthless with my inquiry about what might be done...

In short, if you are on the fence about purchasing one of these, and would make use of a strangers advice..well, I'd pass on this one and at least try something else...

Good luck and best wishes

If you have a USB3.0 port on your desktop or laptop, this is a great upgrade at almost the same price as the usb2 version.
I am getting 95MB/sec transfer speeds for this model vs. 35MB/sec for the canvio-usb2.0.

The drive itself is probably good, although the backup hardware is lame. It's hard to say, because it comes with a thick uSB 3.0 cord about 18" long that separates from drive if you don't move the drive correctly. You absolutely NEED to hold the connection and the drive if you move it. I'm going to duct tape it (seriously), but that's a horrible fix...this connection should have a lock clip built into it.

Took 'forever' (about 3 hours) to back up most of my 25 GB of photos, then became 'stuck' at 98% finished. The little system light just flashed and flashed, and no progress was made. On-line help material is worthless. Backup hourly option is stupid because the process for copying my files was so slow that the system would have become locked into perpetual backups, without a means of modifying that setting 'in flight.' (Assuming it ever got past 98% on the initial backup.) Did eventually get an email response to my request for help, but the grammar and context was quite convoluted and difficult to understand.

Bottom-Line: The Toshiba hardware MAY be very good, but the supplied software and technical support hours and manuals are INEXCUSABLY poor! Negative 'five stars' would be a more appropriate rating for this Toshiba product and its Canvio partner.

I'm very disappointed with this product. The cable USB port keeps disconnecting every time I move my laptop. I hate it. I need a new and improved USB port that does not disconnect, or a full refund so I can go out and buy an HP external drive.
