Excellent little drive,
This review is from: Toshiba HDDR500E04ER_CS StorE Art 500GB 2.5-inch Portable External Hard Drive, Red (discontinued by manufacturer) (Personal Computers)
I bought two of these external hard drives so I could offsite important data. They are small, neat and exceptionally quiet. I am very happy so far with these. They fit great in the case logic Caselogic Small Hard Drive Case - Black.
Only negatives are:
* they come formatted as FAT 32 so when you plug them in you don't appear to have anywhere near half a terrabyte. So just copy off the Tosh software (alhtough I have never used it) and format the drive as NTFS. In this day and age it would have been sensible to format them as NTFS in the first place.
* stupidly short USB lead. It won't even let you balance the drive on top of a PC with it plugged in the front. The capable is fine for a laptop but for anything else you will have to get a USB extension lead.
But don't let the couple of niggles put you off.
