FIVE STARS!!!!!! This is a great USB Hard Drive. The installation was quiet easy even for newbie like myself. Windows picked up the Drive immediately and installed all the stuff it needed. It has worked great so I have no complaints. The shipment was also on time and I appreciate that.

I purchased one of these Toshiba drives about 8 months ago. It has worked fine and I have experienced no issues with it at all. I would recommend it.

I bought this drive in April 2011. It failed 2 months later. Returned it to Toshiba and received a coupon to purchase replacement from ToshibaDirect. Purchased the replacement. The second drive arrived DOA. Returned it to ToshibaDirect. Will never buy Toshiba again and you shouldn't either. You've been warned.
