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.

Comments about Toshiba Canvio Desktop 3TB Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive (Black):

When I went to plug it in, I had to call technical support to get it set up. I thought it would be easy to just plug it in and let it do its thing.

Now it seems to working correctly, backing up, and letting me add items to the drive without any problems.

Junk

By Ger

from cleveland ohio

Comments about Toshiba Canvio Desktop 3TB Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive (Black):

I bought this due to the size of the hard drive. Never had a Toshiba product before. Plugged it in a presto worked perfect. Loaded up over 200 movies into the drive then took it home and plugged it in and nothing. Dead drive with all my movies gone and a week and a half of work wasted. Angry is an understatement.

Worked for 1 month

By MRL357

from McLean, VA

Comments about Toshiba Canvio Desktop 3TB Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive (Black):

Excited when I got this as it would allow me to reduce all my scattered files to one location. Worked great on laptop with Win 8.1, did great on desktop with Win 7. About 1 month later when I tried to retrieve files, nothing works....has been stored properly so have no clue why this problem
