              (Solid in performance, not solid state)
              Small compact drive that does as advertised. One ofthe more affordable drives at the 7200 RPM speed. I have no complaints.

                  Comments about 1TB Touro S Ultra-Portable External Hard Drive (Ruby):

                  It's a very fast USB 3.0 drive I use to backup my desktop hard drive. Backup took less than half time compared with a WD "book".

                  I did not use the backup software for privacy (it's cloud based)

                  The speed comes from having a SSD buffer, a 7200 RPM drive, and USB 3 interface

                  B&H had a great price, and expedited delivery (got in less time than promised)

                    Small, doesn't require a power supply, fast 7200 rpm drive. I think I have about 9 of them now. Have never had a problem. the Black Magic Disk Speed Test shows it at 120 mb/s write, 130 mb/s read. Very fast. Works great for HD video.

                    Comments about 1TB Touro S Ultra-Portable External Hard Drive (Platinum):

                    So far it's been great. I'm using it to backup my older laptop that doesn't have usb 3.0 so the 7200 rpm was a plus. Definitely faster than my old external. Runs fairly quiet as well. I'll probably pick up another for Xbox one.

                        maybe not the prettiest (not the ugliest) nor the more robust external disk market, but efficient and fast, really very good relation value for money. Touro cloud backup works fine.

                        Still works after about 3 weeks. my only complaint is that it doesn't come with a case for transporting it. Also the little light on the unit that shows that it is turned on is located on the same side as the cord. So if you have the cord running away from you, which is normal, you can't see the little light. But who cares about that. Might even be a benefit.

                            These Touro drives are the best I have ever worked with with regards to speed, portability, and the price. If they could make them with some rubber edges and maybe some type of durability upgrade on the internal moving parts then they would be perfect. For example, rated down to 0 degrees Fahernheight and able to be dropped from desk level and be fine.

                              No issues. Good price and works as advertised. First project was to backup almost 400G of photos. No errors during the copy process through the USB 3 interface.

                                  Simply connect the hard drive to the editing
                                  equipment and transfer the material from one machine to another machine. the program is also stored on the hard drive so losing the sdcard is not a disaster. This product easy to set-up and easy to use.
