    Toshiba HDTB330XK3CA reviews

    3TB Canvio Basics 5400 rpm USB 3.0 External Hard Drive (Black) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use this EHD for full system backups using Win 7 Backup. I am running Win 10 Pro on an older lap top that supports USB 2.0, therefore and am not using the full potential of this EHD. I have many pictures and movies on the system and a full Win 7 Backup takes about 9 hours. Interim backs take about an hour and a half. I cannot attest to the maximum speed capabilities of the EHD, but I can attest to the durability and endurance. I have the EHD plugged in to a 4-port USB 3.0 Hub with power adapter. There is no software to install, as it is not needed. I have about 40 hours of usage on the EHD and it has not missed a beat. The form factor is very compact and takes up little space. The hard case does not show finger prints or smudges. I purchased a soft padded Case Logic case (B&H# CAVHS101) that fits the drive like a glove. The Case Logic case has a corduroy fine wale texture so it will not slip in your hand. I will be buying another of this drive shortly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Drive My 12th Toshiba Canvio. Worked greate. I ran badblocks on it 4 times an a burn in test. The disk is no doubt gerat. The power management is decent. It goes to sleep when not in use, this is mostly fine, but if you are watching a video, pause, resuming will be a bit jittery.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just a Hard Drive. It's simple to use. No software to install. It's just a drive waiting for you to back up your photo files to. It is exactly what I was looking for. It was the least expensive 3tb I could find too.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Portable Backup I use this as a portable offline, offsite backup for my RAID 5 system. It does the job, fast, simply and quickly.
