I've owned quite a few external drives in the past, however this is the first Toshiba I've had. Over all it does what it should in a backup drive. No frills, a solid design, just a block with a USB port and one for the included power supply. Plug it in and it was immediately seen by my Mac Pro,(it comes formatted in Windows NTFS which can be read by Macs but not written to without additional software.) All the backup software is for Windows as well so I can't review any of it.
Once formatted correctly the drive is ready for files, I used a backup program from the App store called Backup Buddy, that seems to pickup the slack left behind by Time Machine, however Time Machine is perfect for primary backups, and with 3TB of storage, this drive gives me tons of storage.

My only problem is that it failed after only 20 days of use. Staples was great about replacing it and hopefully it was a fluke. At least the info it backed up was still on the original drive so nothing was lost. If this doesn't fail again for a while then I have nothing else to complain about.

The drive formatted quickly, and I'm using it for my Time Machine backups. It provides plenty of additional storage. The 3 year limited warrant is good too
