I was starting to run out of room on my 1GB external HDD and this looked like a good deal. One of the things that I like most about it, other than the capacity and the USB 3.0 connection, is the fact that the power light changes color depending on which type of USB port you are hooked up to. For USB 3.0 the power light color is blue but if you inadvertently hook up to a USB 2.0 port the power LED color is gray.

This is a big help if you are going to back up a lot of data because USB 3.0 is so much faster than USB 2.0 and most PCs and laptops still have both.

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.

Should Be Easier

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

I purchased this portable drive to backup data from old computer and transfer to my new computer. No so Fast. What should have been a simple task did not happen. I still haven't figured it out. The accompanying backup program is confusing, and wants me to sign up for a Cloud Account, which I don't want. I used Zip Drives in the past with no such problems.

Good value for price

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

Haven't opened this one yet, but I also have the 1 TB version and it's been very reliable. This was on sale, plus combined with one of Staple's periodic "20% off all purchases" coupons I got a very good price. I've heard mixed reviews re. reliability of other major brands typically stocked in-store, but so far haven't heard any about Toshiba. Knocking on wood as I write this... I do see that Toshiba now has WiFi solid state drives, but they're still low capacity (128 GB). It would be nice if they bump those up to the TB spectrum.

Inexpensive & Portable but not fast

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

I bought this mainly because it is inexpensive and doesn't require a separate power source. It's small size and light wight makes it very mobile, which makes it very convenient. The only negative that I have found is that it is slow when copying files to and from my mac. I don't have any "speed test" comparisons, but compared to my desktop external drives, it is pretty slow. That being said, it isn't slow enough to warrant replacing it, and as I mentioned earlier, I'm comparing it to desktop, not mobile external drives. If high speeds are a necessity for you, double-check the more expensive portable drives to see if they have better speeds. If not, this will do the trick.
