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.

Toshiba 3tb External Hard Drive

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

I bought this drive to back up movies on my DISH Network DVR. After purchase I went to the Dish Network site to install only to find out that the requirements were 500 gb to 2 tb, so i got technical support on the line and they told me the same thing, so I ask if a 3tb drive would work? they replied the same thing that specs for it were 500gb to 2tb. So I asked would it hurt any thing to try? because they have to format the drive to their specs, and they said you can try, so I did and it worked like a champ.

Great Value

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

I really like this new 3TB External Hard Drive. I take a lot of High Resolution Photos and shoot a lot of HD video as well and keeping storage space free can be a challenge some times. With 3Tb of space I don't think I'll be running out any time soon. The transfer speed is great as well. If you're a Mac user like me you'll need to go into your "disk Utility" app and re-configure the drive as a Mac Os Extended Journaled and then its all drag and drop from there. Set up takes about 5 minutes and then you're good to go.

Great product as advertised!

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

This external hard drive works great. It has fast transfer speed, ample storage space and a sleek design. If you're a Mac uswrt like me you'll first have to use your "disk doctor" app to re-configure the drive it OS extended journaled, and it's all drag and drop from there. I'm very happy with the look, price, functionality and easy of use with the external hard drive. I highly recommend it to anyone who experience loss of space due to excessive picture and HD video storage. If you buy this you won't be disappointed.
