    3TB Canvio Connect II Portable Hard Drive (Black) is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Big Mistake I bought this thinking I could use it as an external drive with my new 2016 Apple iMac 27 desk top configured with the biggest and fastest that Apple offered. Big's not compatible with Sierra and won't accept any data. Works ok on my 2009 iMac currently running Yosemite and before that Mavericks and Snow Leopard. A check of the enclosed read me file confirmed the lack of support.....discovered this after I bought 3 of these drives. This unit needs to be better identified to clarify compatibility issues and avoid the expense of having to purchase compatible replacements only days after purchasing this unit. If I could give this zero stars, I would......

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only lasted about three months then just broke down. The hard drive worked ok for a couple of months and I transferred about 50 movies to it and two burn marks appeared in the drives face.(see image) I watched four or five of these and then it began freezing half way through a movie. This got worse and worse until the movies would no longer play and after that the drive would no longer show up on my computer. Looks like money down the drain. I used to like Toshiba too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow!! I own & use Canvio 1 & 2 terabyte units to backup my Mac machines. They are small and work flawlessly. I am getting the 3tb unit because the price is low and the reliability is great. Highly recommended. DoctorSaul

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfactory Toshiba portable drives are smaller than other brands, and in my experience the cable connection is more reliable than some others. I ordered this model for its greater storage capacity. Very satisfying.
