      Couldn't stand negative reviews saying this drive "isn't compatible."

      PLEASE only pay attention to negative reviews if people say it came DOA or it died while in service. All other people with negative reviews on here are WRONG.

      It IS Mac compatible, it DOES NOT come formatted for a mac. Please take 30 seconds on google to figure out how to format your drive correctly before posting another review.
      (Just because it isn't white and priced 3 times what it's worth does not mean that it doesn't work on a MAC)

      It IS USB 2.0 compatible (so it will work on all Macs as well since they haven't upgraded to USB 3.0 yet >_<). Those who posted that it wasn't probably also are just having problems with the stock formatting. (I believe they come stock as NTFS... can't remember)

      I got mine, formatted it in "FAT" so I could use it for PC and Mac and it has worked great. I have had no hiccups whatsoever.

      It will format in Fat, NTFS, Journaled, etc.

      Great device ready for USB 3.0

          I use this drive to backup my photographs. It was extremely fast in transferring over 3500 photos from my digital library and very easy to use. It was also much smaller than I expected.

            I bought one of these a year or so ago, and it's excellent. I use it for backing up my systems, and for sharing directly or via PogoPlug. I bought a second one to allow me to backup my systems regulary, and store it in my safety deposit box. Easy to use, fast access, trouble free...

              I'm a Mac user and the Toshiba Basics 3.0 comes Windows formatted but fear not, it's the fastest format process for OS X use. It took me literally 45 seconds to do so. Not bad at all. Also, has a quick response and decent speed to it. I highly recommend this product.

                              I really like this little external drive. It does not come with a bunch of junk extra software like so many other drives. You just plug it in and use it. It is a nice portable size for a 1TB drive making is a good choice if you need a larger portable drive especially since it also has usb 3.0.

                              Couldn't stand negative reviews saying this drive "isn't compatible."

                              PLEASE only pay attention to negative reviews if people say it came DOA or it died while in service. All other people with negative reviews on here are WRONG.

                              It IS Mac compatible, it DOES NOT come formatted for a mac. Please take 30 seconds on google to figure out how to format your drive correctly before posting another review.
                              (Just because it isn't white and priced 3 times what it's worth does not mean that it doesn't work on a MAC)

                              It IS USB 2.0 compatible (so it will work on all Macs as well since they haven't upgraded to USB 3.0 yet >_<). Those who posted that it wasn't probably also are just having problems with the stock formatting. (I believe they come stock as NTFS... can't remember)

                              I got mine, formatted it in "FAT" so I could use it for PC and Mac and it has worked great. I have had no hiccups whatsoever.

                              It will format in Fat, NTFS, Journaled, etc.

                              Great device ready for USB 3.0

                                  I just kept buying this product, now have 3 of them, because it is just a very reliable and convenient portable storage solution. Much smaller than the USB2.0 Seagate 2.5" external drive I also have. Just love the matt finish, simple and practical design. Because it is USB powered, it will power on and off along with the equipment it is plugged into. Works fine on Windows, MacOS, TV, PS3, etc.

                                      Makes my seagate 2.5" expansion drive look like a 3.5" (exaggeration) but you got the point. It is small, no fuss and just a great external drive that does the job. Like the matt finish over the piano finish of the seagate as well.
