Customer Reviews of Toshiba Canvio Basics 3.0 1TB USB 3.0/2.0 Portable Hard Drive - Black
Great drive at a good price.10/15/2014
This is my second Toshiba Canvio external HD. The first has been working fine as a backup drive on my dual-boot Windows XP Pro/Windows 7 PC. It is a USB v. 2.0 drive but this latest drive is USB v. 3.0 compatible. I intend to use it as an external backup drive for a newly built Windows 8.1 tower.
good product worked right away
Toshiba portable hard drives are worth the money. Does not crash or damage easily. I bought one about 3 yrs ago I still have it and still good. This purchase was for a friend. I will recommend this product
Excellent product for home and office use.
Great hard drive!8/24/2013
I recently bought a Seagate portable 1TB USB3.0 hard drive and this Toshiba is my 2nd portable USB3.0 hard drive. This hard drive is hands down faster than the Seagate (atleast 20-30MBps). Also it is smaller and lighter too. A must buy product!!
The enclosure is well-designed. The activity LED is bright and located on the top where it's easy to see. There are rubber feet on the bottom that do an adequate job of keeping it in place. It has a hard matte finish that doesn't smudge or scratch easily like glossy finishes used on other enclosures. Overall, it feels solid and durable.

Great little backup tool.5/22/2013
I use this to backup my pictures. This just plugs in (windows 7) and fires up. Works like a charm. I'm glad I bought it.
The item was just as it was describe. I have not used the item yet but do not anticipate any problems.
I didn't read the full description when I purchased this drive. It does come with USB 3.0 which is considerably faster than 2.0. It's a great little external hard drive to have around.
Nice solid hard drive4/28/2013
I just got this hard drive from rakuten.com with free shipping and it was quite fast. It seems to be real solid drive. I just transferred my 100 GB data in very few minutes. Comparing to other hard drives it definitely is better in terms of speed and durability.

Great USB 3.0 Hard Drive!2/19/2013
This is really a great hard drive, especially considering the price. The USB 3.0 has amazing speed. A complete backup of my MacBook which used to take 5-6 hours only took 90 minutes this time. Very quick shipping and great packaging also. Would definitely buy again.
This is an amazing USB Hard Drive. It is very fast and seems reliable as well. My Windows 7 Workstation picked it up automatically so no need to install third party drivers. The Shipment was quiet fast as well. I am planning on purchasing two more of these drives.
Compact with a matte finish. Works as expected
