It's speedy. This thing is 7200 RPM, which means you're getting the fastest portable drive you can get. So, without having to plug this into an outlet, you can take advantage of both the fast drive and USB 3.0. For the price, you really can't beat this.
I use a couple for very different things. One is attached to my Xbox One, and holds all my games. Booting from this is actually quicker (albeit, only minor differences) than booting from the internal hard drive. All I have to do is plug it in via USB, and it works. No power cord means a nice, clutter-free way to store your games. If you're heading to a friends house, just disconnect it and bring it over - you have a collection of next gen games in your pocket.
Then I use one for my photo library. My Lightroom catalog is stored on this, so when I'm editing photos I just plug this bad boy in and edit away. It's fast and works perfectly when editing photos, and I can bring it with me wherever I go, so editing outside of the office is no problem. Added perk of being able to plug this into anything that takes USB and look at all the photos (and 1TB can hold a lot of photos).
I'm about to pick up another drive, to put my movies onto. Carrying all of my movies in my pocket without having to worry about powering the thing is just amazing.
I have had 0 problems with both drives. They stay pretty cool, have had no failures and transferring files is very quick. This is my recommendation when people ask which portable hard drive to go with.
Oh, and Touro is owned by Western Digital, so don't be afraid of buying a drive from a company that you've never heard of before. You will be happy with your purchase, trust me.
However, when the drive does work, it appears to be doing so quite well. We'll have to wait to see if the connector becomes a general, long term issue or not. In the meantime, I would agree with most reviews dealing with the connectors and the drive coming on and off, which makes this device more or less reliable (disconnections during transfers are likely to corrupt files, making it a quite useless storage/backup device.
1) I teach at a college, and my major requires regular access / transferring of massive amounts of video data.
2) My Macbook Pro's SSD, while not tiny, is just not big enough to store all the data I need, so I needed an external drive to hold everything but the essentials.
Both of the above required a fast drive, and while I initially looked at WD and Seagate drives, after a lot of research, this drive had the best performance of them all.
It really, really does not disappoint.
On a USB 3.0 connection, I've gotten transfers going as fast as 133 MB/s -- for a hard drive...especially a portable one...I find that extremely impressive. With image sequences it does slow down considerably...but this would be the case for any spinning drive. Overall I couldn't be any happier with this drive, with the only concern long-term stability...since I have not used this brand before. At this point, however, it shows no signs of slowing down. :)
All negativity aside the drive is a performer. Good internals, solid 7200RPM HGST drive and fast USB 3.0 connection. I have already pre-ordered Touro's step up model that is an aluminum build. I am not entirely disappointed with this drive as it does do what I need and is definitely a performer over a WD or Seagate portable 5400rpm drive. However, I am used to Mac and Pro Canon build quality. I could have gone with G-Drive for build but I feel that they are over priced. I can live with the build on this one for the price.
