    This review is from: Toshiba Canvio 500 GB Slim Portable External Hard Drive – Black (HDTD105XK3D1) (Personal Computers)

    I have the segate 500GB slim, and this thing beats it in every single aspect.
    It’s faster: I transferred about 100GB of photos; the Segate rate was around 60MB/s and the Toshiba rate of transfer was always more than 105MB/s…Amazing.
    The Toshiba is smaller and looks more beaustiful.
    I’m returning the Segate and will get 4 of these..
    Well done Toshiba.

    This drive meets the basic expectations – fast, quickly recognized by Windows and Mountain Lion (Mac).

    After that, it outshines the slim Seagate that carries a similar “slimness” premium in two ways.

    1. The included software is decent enough and does full system backups automatically.

    2. I was expecting it to be metal-lookalike plastic…you know the cheezy finish that’s pretty common on the Seagate and WD slim HDDs. I was pleasantly surprised that the shell is real brushed aluminum and the Toshiba logo is not printed but rather subtly etched on the metal (the sides are plastic though). The finish is very Apple-like, though I would not have paid a premium for that by itself.

    The drive also looks much better in real life than it does in Amazon’s pictures. The connector is a native USB 3.0 connection on the drive side and a regular USB connector on the PC side. I’m using it with a USB 2.0 port and it seems zippy in transferring data over that slower connection. Another nice touch is a white LED the is very subtly built into the back corner corner. So reads and writes can be observed without having to stare straight at the front panel. The included cable is short at about a foot (which I prefer over a six foot cable in a ultraportable drive).

    Overall, this drive exceeds my expectations and I would recommend it over the comparable Seagate slim version.

    Addendum: Its build quality is closer to Japan-made electronics but it is made in China.

    Addendum #2: I’ve used it for six months without an iota of buyers remorse or problems. I’d buy it again in a heartbeat.

    This Harddrive is awesome!, May 10, 2013

    I absolutely love this harddrive. Works on BOTH my mac and windows machines. It has extremely fast transfer speeds as I moved 95GBs in like a couple of minutes. Basically copied my whole computer in 15 minutes. It is nice and slim and looks quite styleish.

    I bought a case from case logic which fits it perfectly. The case holds the cord and device snuggly

    Also, Best Buy IS CHEAP right now. only $65 bucks!!! just sayin
