I really enjoy this little tiger. I call it a tiger because it is compact and presents the feel of a quality product in your hands. It is solid and extremely fast when using the USB 3.0 on my computer. I found both the upload times and download times more than comfortable and within reason. You WILL NOTICE A BIG DIFFERENCE if you go from a USB 2.0 to USB 3.0 connection. I also like the fact that it only requires one USB connection. My older portable hard drive required a DATA & Power USB connection and an additional Power USB connection. Oh did I forget to mention the 2TB space is amazing. I absolutely love it and would not hesitate to recommend this to a friend. At this time I have not used any of the backup software that comes with it.

This 2TB external hard drive came with absolutely no instructions which is probably fine for computer nerds. But, for a person who has never seen, much less used an external hard drive, it left me wondering what to do. I plugged the drive in and eventually found my way to the opening screen through "My Computer". I then needed to make multiple decisions with zero guidance. The screen said it would take five hours to copy my files. The screen wanted my credit card number to pay an undetermined amount of money for cloud storage (?) I thought I just bought an external hard drive to store files. At this point I have no idea what, if anything, is stored on this new Toshiba drive. Staples sent me an email with an 800 phone number to call for help in installing the product. These customer service people had no idea what to do or where to send me.

Oversold and Overpriced

Comments about Toshiba Canvio® Connect 2TB Portable Hard Drive (Silver):

This was over priced for what it is, excessively complicated for what I needed, and I feel that I was oversold a more expensive and more complicated product than I wanted. What I wanted was what I had previously ordered online. However, I needed something ASAP. The store clerk told me this was exactly the same as the model I already had. And it wasn't.

Solid Handy Little Drive

By Texas Gramps

from Garland, Texas

Verified Buyer

Comments about Toshiba Canvio® Connect 2TB Portable Hard Drive (Silver):

I bought this drive to move a lot of files from an old Windows XP desktop I was going to retire from service before the announced "death" of XP on April 8, 2014. I used Teracopy to move the files to the Toshiba Canvio drive from the 500GB and 400GB drives on the XP, after I found that XP's built-in utilities were pretty useless for the purpose, since they were constantly asking me for keyboard input for each problem encountered. The desktop machine had only USB 2.0 ports, so the project took many hours more than it would have if USB 3.0 had been available. The Canvio handled the load without complaint, taking all the power it needed from the ancient USB ports on the XP. A random check of files moved to the Canvio shows that they are all apparently intact and readable. I haven't yet used any of the software that came with this drive. Based on what I have seen so far, I would recommend this drive to others.
