A sexy looking hard drive !,
This review is from: Toshiba PA4153E-1HE0 500GB 2.5 Inch External Black Steel Hard Drive (Personal Computers)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The first thing you'll notice when you take all of the packaging off this drive is how sexy it looks. It's sleek and black and shiny and any gadget lover will be most impressed. Toshiba have also been clever enough to include a snug fitting leather pouch to protect it whilst maintaining the good looks, but it's not just on appearance that this little gem is a winner.
There's no software to worry about for a start - you can just plug it into your USB socket(s) and go. The supplied lead is a bit on the short side (it's only just long enough to suit me) and has a double USB end in case your computer needs two outlets to supply the power. Having said that I've tried it on two desktop PCs and also a laptop computer, and it's managed ok with just the one USB connected on all of them. In operation it works at least as fast as my other external hard drives and is quiet too, and overall I've been very impressed with it. The only slight negative point for me was that it came with a trial version of McAfee already on it, but for those who don't want to use it then that is easily deleted.
