This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Basics 3.0 750GB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTB107XK3AA Black

Pros: It's black, Other than that none!

Cons: SLOW
EXTRA POOR CUSTOMER ASSISTANCE
NO USER MANUAL
HOGS MEMORY AND VIRTUALLY STOPS OTHER ACTIVITY WHEN BACKING UP
NOT EASILY TO PARTITION
SUPPLIED SOFTWARE IS NOT FRIENDLY

Other Thoughts: absolutely horrible drive. it's back up programming is very poor, hogs processor and bogs down when it works. i have yet to learn how to get around it and customize it for what I want. Have it for one year now and plan to dump it. Customer support has been a total bust and No comprehensive users manual even for on line download. A REAL ZERO

5 out of 5 eggsDoes the job

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Basics 3.0 750GB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTB107XK3AA Black

Pros: Synced right up to the three PC's I needed to take sizable files from and moved the quickly.
Got it when it was on sale and there was a Toshiba promotion. $39.99

Cons: Cord is a little short. About 3" more would do the job.

4 out of 5 eggs2nd Response

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Basics 3.0 750GB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTB107XK3AA Black

Pros: The "expert" who had to write the "Response" utterly forgot to mentioned that industry uses measure of 1GByte = 1 000 000 000 bytes , while computer treats 1Gbyte = 1 073 741 824 bytes. Thus computer's count is actually 6.9% LESS than what the vendor states.

Cons: The loss due to formatting is actually below 1% of the total space available.

Other Thoughts: Same advice you gave to other!

5 out of 5 eggsResponse to "Not 750Gigs"

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Basics 3.0 750GB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTB107XK3AA Black

Pros: Just have to respond to the idiot who posted the "Not 750Gigs" post, probably a couple below this post. This moron, who listed his tech level at "high," is utterly clueless. ALL hard drives are sold labeled with their unformatted data capacity. The formatting is what uses up a % of the drive's addressable capacity. Anyone with more than 1 tick on the "tech" scale would know this.

Cons: ...but this loser doesn't. The amount of space lost to formatting accounts for the addressable size of this drive. Period. And if the chump posting that message had the slightest clue about computers, he'd know that.

Other Thoughts: Lesson: remember that any cretin can post something on the internet while declaring themselves an expert. You need to learn to spot those people and then not pay them any attention.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid drive

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Basics 3.0 750GB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTB107XK3AA Black

Pros: Typical solid Toshiba quality, no issues, large capacity, USB 3.0 interface, portable 2.5 form factor with no need for additional power supply.

Cons: If you read the specs and understand what it is that you are purchasing I see no cons.

Other Thoughts: What amazes me is people who claim "High Tech Knowledge" and yet the fail to understand that hard drive manufacturers always report the capacity using the decimal definition yet OS's use binary logic, which equates to roughly 7% less usable capacity than advertised.
Nothing to gripe about since its been this way from day one and every manufacturer does it.

2 out of 5 eggsNot 750Gigs

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Basics 3.0 750GB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTB107XK3AA Black

Pros: USB 3.0 works great

Cons: This is 698Gigs, not 750. As everyone knows, the amount of space on any storage device is never what is advertised. Usually ~2-3 gigs off, but to be 50 gigs short is robbery. 50 gigs, that is approx. 12,000 songs or tens of thousands of pictures that could be stored on there. Mis-advertising by 50 gigs is a lot. If you haven't understood my point yet, don't buy this hard drive unless you only want 700gig of space.

Other Thoughts: And of course they have their own special connector, not the universal mini-usb. Not something i looked at when i purchased it, but something to be aware of.

1 out of 5 eggsSupport FAIL

This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Basics 3.0 750GB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTB107XK3AA Black

Pros: Terrific price

Cons: This drive lasted about 2 hours from when I turned it on but since I didn't open the package until just a little over a month from when I got it NewEgg won't offer an RMA.

ZERO support from them and t Toshiba support info on the NewEgg page goes to a 404 - page not found.

If you search you can find the main Toshiba site but they have farmed their support to the 'acclaim' site.

Try entering your serial and part number there for an RMA and it comes back with an invalid serial number.

The toll-free number won't let you talk to a human, it directs you to get an RMA on the website.

But the website says the serial is in valid.

So I tried a support chat with a NewEgg rep and they gave me a bogus serial number to use... and then said they don't open the packages so they don't know what my serial is and then told me I have to get support from Toshiba.

When I questioned 'Devin' on where did he/she get the serial number they disconnected my session.

I am aghast at the lack of service from NewEgg and Toshiba.

I rue the day I got this Piece Of Sh* as whenever I've had a Seagate or WD drive fail I can promptly enter the serial and get warranty status/RMA.

The 3 year warranty from Toshiba is a lie since you can't get service from them.

NewEgg should be ashamed that they are selling these things.
