    2TB Touro Mobile USB 3.1 Gen 1 External Hard Drive is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install , Easy to use , It realy works The Touro 2T USB drive is being used as a external backup of the main hard drive . It is unplugged for security and only plugged in when a new backup is made. The next step is to mirror the main active drive onto the Touro so it can be used to boot up the system if needed . Note this requires a change in your BIOS setting to boot from the external drive. Thereafter you can mirror over your main drive , reset the BIOS and your back in business. The TOURO allows you to say the hell with hackers , and ransomware idiots. Perhaps it will help put a end to hackers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as desgined... The review follows B&H's email asking for it. But: It is a bit difficult to review a portable drive directly after the purchase. All we can write is: works as designed. Data transfer rate corresponds to USB3 speed, the drive is quiet. I set it up to be the secondary backup destination for import of mages in Lightroom. Surely, the price was attractive. But the real verdict can be made one or two years later: will it still work?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from FAST Instructions somewhat incomplete..... I did not want to activate the auto backup software and the instructions did not give me that option. So, I just ignored the steps for the auto backup and started using the device as a normal file saving device. Not sure if I was only having a good day or not, but when I backed up my DVD Profiler database, the Touro completed the backup faster than any other device (WD, Passport, etc.) that I have ever used. I got Touro while on sale at B&H; once they put it on sale again, I will grab another one for my wife.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from HGST. Nothing more needs to be said. I've used HGST drives for the past eighteen years and the first drive I bought still works like a charm. That's ruggedness for you in something everybody says will fail someday. It's not to say other drive manufacturers don't measure up, but HGST set the bar for themselves and stuck to that quality. It seems WD will keep on with that tradition. Leastways, I hope so. I bought four when on sale recently.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good. Great price on Daily Deal! A little thicker and heavier than my previous USB powered drives. One for my computer (immediate reformatted for Mac) that works well. A second for my son's Playstation 4, which worked perfectly right out of the box.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, works as it should. Had a WD 2TB small drive which inexplicably died. Needed a replacement and fortunately this was on sale. Previously have had good luck with WD but all hard drives will eventually fail so just took it in my stride.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job Bought the drive to backup all my data & give to friend to keep for me to have off-premises protection. Don't have USB 3.0 but worked well with USB 2.0.
