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 gold again. I suspect this low tolerance for older, out-of-spec USB components is causing the problems other reviewers seem to be having with the drive.

* As others have mentioned, the USB 3.0 cable included with the drive is rather short (~18in). I suspect the short length may have something to do with Toshiba's attempt at mitigating potential problems with older/out-of-spec USB components. I had luck using a USB extension cable, but that was on a USB 2.0 port. Your mileage may vary.

So, two caveats: (1) If you use it with older and/or out-of-spec components you may have some troubleshooting to do; and, (2) the included cable is shorter than others. Neither of those things is worth taking off a whole star.

I must write to express my extreme frustration and dissatisfaction with the customer support service offered by Toshiba.

This drive worked fine for about a year, and now will no longer mount. Toshiba claims that there is a 3 Year Warranty on the product, which is clearly expressed on the box, and in the pamphlet. Well, I spent 3 hours so far trying to file a warranty claim on the product with no progress. I've called about 5 phone numbers and visited 3 websites, and I just keep getting redirected from one person to another. Nobody can help me, and they even refuse to escalate my call to a manager.

The warranty claim phone number put me on hold for about 35 minutes before I gave up, with no indication at all as to how long I would have to wait, or how many other people are ahead of me!

From my point of view, the warranty that Toshiba claims to offer on their external harddrives is total B.S. It seems that they are purposely making it impossible to file a claim their products. So frustrated and upset after this experience, I will be sure to avoid Toshiba in the future.

After reading the reviews with caveats about poor cable connections, I thought, "those must be older USB ports, and I'm sure it won't be a problem connecting to my new Toshiba Satellite laptop." However, there truly IS a problem with quality control of the cable connectors. The Canvio intermittently lost connectivity, with the problem being on the end of the cable that connects to my laptop USB port. When I swapped the Toshiba cable for the cable from my iomega eGo portable hard drive (also USB 3), the Toshiba Canvio worked perfectly. When I called Toshiba tech support to tell them this, fully expecting that they would send me a functional cable, their response was "We can only help with the drive and the software, not the cables." So, don't expect Toshiba to help you if they supply you with a bad cable.

Toshiba Canvio 1.0 TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive - HDTC610XK3B1 (Black) is what I purchased. I've always liked the Toshiba portables because they are small, have low power consumption and just work with no BS involved. USB 3.0 is a new standard in USB speed, but is backward compatible with the USB 2.0 standard. So if you have USB 3.0 ports on your computer then you can enjoy the speed of the USB 3.0 standard. I have USB 2.0 ports and the drive works at USB 2.0 speeds.

So, here's the reasons that I purchased the drive:

1. Small = The drive is wide as a 1.5 deck of playing cards and thin as a flat dinner plate/dish

2. Low Power Consumption = One single USB attachment is plenty to power the drive... granted the USB port is on a powered USB hub (USB hub has its own power supply plugged into an electrical outlet) or a bus powered USB port on a computer has good power flow to it.

3. No BS = Even though the drive comes with backup software, you do not have to use it.

4. Size = Its got a 1 terabyte (1TB) capacity. Bigger is better IMO(in my opinion it's what I needed and the color that I wanted).

I plugged in the dive and Windows installed the device and recognized it. I reformatted the drive even though it already comes NTFS formatted. NTSF is a file standard file structure format just as FAT or FAT16, on NTSF is better and much more flexible in its use.

Whenever I plug it in, it takes 30-50 seconds for my computer to recognize it, but that might have to do with the USB ports on my computer or the USB cable that came with the drive and not the actual drive (either way, I don't care because it works)!
