Excellent 500gb portable hdd from japanese electronic giant toshiba.
8 March, 2014
I just buyed this toshiba 500gb usb 3.0 external hdd and after using it i can say it is the cheapest 500gb usb 3.0 external hdd which you can get for as low as 3000rs to 3600rs.
Pros --- Slime form factor so easy to carry.
Read and Write speed is superfast when using usb 3.0 port and also very good when using usb 2.0 port,also depends on your pc and laptop configuration.
Has usb 3.0 so i was able to transfer 4gb of data in about 50 sec.
Backward compatible with usb 2.0
Has a 3 year limited warranty
Compatible with windows xp,windows vista,windows 7, windows 8, mac os.
Its a 5400 RPM drive
From a brand like toshiba so quality is great.
Has internal shock sensor and ramp loading technology which protects your drive and data if you accidently drop it.
No software to install so just plug n play.
Can also be used with tv with usb ports,gaming consoles.
Cons --- The usb cord that comes with the hdd is very short in length so it becomes difficult to connect especially on back ports of desktop pc and even on laptops,so you may have to buy a new usb 3.0 cord.
Overall this is the best 500gb external hdd which supports usb 3.0 and backwards compatible with usb 2.0 and also the cheapest and slim hdd so go for this as it is from Japanese electronic giant toshiba.
