1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Got a deal on a 1TB model. Everything worked for about 2 weeks. USB bridge went south after full system backup. Had to take drive out, toss adapter and retrieve data with another external drive controller. Don't store really important files on this drive...you might not get them back.

Toshiba 1TB Portable Hard Drive
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Worst usb external drive I've ever had. Even when working, transfers are horribly slow and after copying some files, external drive becomes detached and copying fails. Should rate 0 stars.

Crashed after less than 24 hours
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Review for HDTC610XK3B1 - I've tried several times to copy files from my hard drive to this device over the last 24 hours. The operation consistently crashes Windows 7 Explorer before it can transfer 10 gig. Apologists will blame the user's operating software, but Windows does not single out 1 particular hardware device to hassle on a regular basis. This unit is the common denominator.

good price
4 Star Review   By ecosty on Adorama - Jul 23, 2013   

is a good price for this product ... doesn't look so strong like other brands (Seagate)- the plastic case is too soft for this kind of product ... but it's a good price for 1 TB storage

Unreliable
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Had this bad boy for a little over year. It was used very sparingly as its primary purposed was for occasional data storage. Clicking death, and with it all my data, even though I was very careful while handling it.

1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I liked Toshiba, until my experiences with the Passport external HD, and various 'facets' of customer 'support' that may, or may not be available. They need to remember that thousands of people bought models previous to canvio, and win 8 in the last six, to eighteen months.

It's perfect until it brakes
3 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I had already 2 different Canvio models. They are perfect until they brake. None of them lasted even a year. I hope Toshiba will improve them because they are VERY HANDY.

Worst external HD Ever
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

got the 1TB because of the price. Don't. Had it less than 3 weeks and filled it halfway up with my Wii, and all the sudden it froze up and died. I tried removing the HD from he enclosure, but f'n Toshiba WELDED the enclosure closed, so I can not even get my data off before returning/trashing. Normally I like Toshiba, but after reading other reviews on the DWC110, DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! ps-another person posted you need USB 3.0. Not true; worked perfect for a while in 2.0, not will not work at all, even in 3.0.

If you do not have 3.0, do not waste your money.
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

This drive does not stay connected unless you have a 3.0 USB connection. The device packaging claims it is capable of USB 2.0 use but it is not. It disconnects at random moments ranging from 10 seconds to 20 minutes.

Junk—Lost Data, Dead Drive
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I placed a fair number of files on this drive from a desktop PC running Win XP SP3. Moved them to a new (Sept 2012) Macbook Pro. Installed the provided software to make the disk R/W from the Mac. Tried writing to the drive and it failed. Now the drive isn't even recognized by ANY Windows or Mac machine. And yes—it's *supposed* to work with a Mac. Thank heavens I back up my work using other hardware, too—but this has trashed the files and lost a bit of work on a legal case. Very expensive.

Excellent Drive
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I have used many other Toshiba external drives but read the reviews before I purchased this one. I could disregard all the one star reviews as the problems the users were describing were typical computer software and driver problems, not problems caused by this drive. I have tested this drive on five desktops and four laptops and it works flawlessly.

Just to reiterate
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Do not purchase,read all the above poor ratings and take your pick!!!Although the drive letter is visable on all 7 of various devices, Mac & PC the archived information is only accessable on ONE of them and then only using USB 2. I'll just repeat ....do not purchase. Ps three of the 7 devices mentioned above are.......Toshiba...go figure!!!

Awful!!!!
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Plugged the product in, it said the software was installed but then I wasn't able to access the drive. Tried to uninstall and reinstall with no luck. There is absolutely no support available for this product online and the manual is completely useless. Oh, the manual does tell you if you have problems after installation to just hit the "help" button on the device...too bad I can't even get to that point because the device DOESN'T WORK! I don't have the time to waste on trying to troubleshoot this product and now I have to waste more time returning it and purchasing a new drive. It won't be a Toshiba product. Very unhappy.

Poor Harddrive
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Won't work in USB 3 mode on Win 7 Ultimate, only in USB 2. EVGA X58 motherboard. Crashes my Alienware M17R3 Laptop when connected to a USB 3 port. Get BSOD. First time the M17R3 ever crashed. It does however work on both in USB 2 mode, but thats not what I bought it for. Seriously disappointed. Probably be my last Toshiba purchase.

Poor Equipment
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Just bought this and it stopped working in two days. I have windows 7. There are no drivers out there or support page. I would not recommend Toshiba to anyone. Wal Mart will not take it back since it is opened.

Died after two weeks
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

This was a great drive until it died in the middle of a file transfer... never came back to life. Lasted only two weeks. Had to send it back to Toshiba. Great experience with their support, but would NOT recommend these drives.

Great Product-Error Check Your Hard Drive First!
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

After I bought this drive I quickly installed it and then began a backup using third-party software that I've used successfully with other external drives. I had read reviews in other venues that blasted this Toshiba drive for suddenly disappearing or having severe problems. I began backup of my major hard drive and 57% of the way through the drive went clunk. Windows Vista (64-bit) told me that the drive had been dropped and could not be found. I had thought about this before buying the drive and so rebooted and immediately ran error-checking on the hard drive (in Vista, My Computer, highlight the drive, click properties, click tools, select error checking). Five file fragments were found and were converted to files. I reran the backup and it went flawlessly. Next I error checked my two other hard drives and then backed them up equally successfully. I have had absolutely no problems with the drive after error-checking and it is fast and efficient once I got rid of the problems on my computer. After that the Toshiba did the rest beautifully.

Works well but needs a lot of power
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

It works well but needs a lot of power, I have to use a hub because I dont have a usb y-splitter, the cable that it comes with should have a built in y-spitter.

Where's the support???
3 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Nice speedy little drive. No under voltage problems when used with my laptop like my other drive. I do find it hard to safely remove but that is more likely a Windows problem. My only real complaint is that I can't find a support page of any kind. For that it gets 3 stars. Otherwise a 4-5 star product.

Software not compatable with Windows 7
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

The NTI software supplied with this hard drive is not compatable with Windows 7. NTI told me I should set my compatable mode to Windows XP. This means this software was written before Vista or Windows 7. Changing the compatable did not work. Toshiba product support does not list this hard drive.

Needs more power
3 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I found that the hard drive wouldn't work on my Mac unless it is connected to two USB ports (via a splitter) or a powered USB hub. I bet a lot of the problems users are having with this are a result of it being underpowered. Otherwise it works fine. Hopefully this helps some of you.
