    HGST Touro Mobile reviews

    500GB Touro Mobile 5400 rpm USB 3.1 Gen 1 External Hard Drive is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 41.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice small drive Nice little drive. I didn't pay for it, it was a manufacture promotional give away hosted by B+H. I'd likely have purchased a drive in metal case for reasons of heat dispersion, if I were looking to buy such a drive. My spec software sees the drive as Hitachi, if that matters to anyone. Obviously that doesn't say which party makes the PCB control unit. The USB-3 cable works nicely. (I bring this up, since I've had several USB-3 cables fail over the years.) To stress test the drive, and to make it readily compatible with Mac, I did a full format of the drive from NTFS to exFAT. Took a while. Noted no problems.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I purchased this hard drive only a few weeks ago but it has proven to be a very nice piece of hardware. Seems reliable, quiet, and doesn't take up much space. My only complaint is the USB cable is a little on the short side. Another 3 or 4 inches in length would be helpful. This is a minor complaint however.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product. Maybe this brand would never have bought it unless it was on sale at an incredible price. I decided and I have not regretted, it does what it offers. I am very satisfied.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work well for me. Just starting to use the pair as swappable backup drives for customer system. Have used in the past and no problems. Shipping was quick and packaged well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good stuff I have 6 of these, some 500GB and some 1TB. All work good. The HGST drive in it alone is sometimes less $$$ than the same drive in retail box. So about half of my Touro's I have taken out the HGST. Can always put a 2.5 HDD back into the enclosure.
