5.0 out of 5 stars Initial Review, November 14, 2011

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: (Old Model) Toshiba Canvio 500 GB USB 3.0 Basics Portable Hard Drive (HDTB205XK3AA) (Personal Computers)
I have had the hard drive for a few days now. I was surprised at how small it was when I opened it. I have a 500gb external hard drive that is a few years old and you have to plug it in and its rather large. This one is small, sleek, and fast. Much faster than my old hard drive. I reformatted it to FAT32 so I can use it with my PS3. Works like a charm. I was a little surprised that it didnt have any air holes for venting heat, but I transferred 100gb of data onto it and it was barely warm. I am very excited about it. It is very light which kind of gives it a delicate feel, so I bought a case for it ($8) which I think will definitely increase the lifespan of it.

I will come back with another review if anything goes wrong, but im loving it so far.

PS3 reads it if you format to FAT32; also remember that if you are copying videos, you need to make a folder "VIDEO" and copy only to it (can have subfolders inside). See this - http://ps3explained.com/advanced/folder-structure/
