5.0 out of 5 stars Getting into the Toshiba 1TB drive, 23 Mar. 2009
This review is from: Toshiba 1TB USB 3.5" External Desktop Hard Drive (Personal Computers)
A well-made external usb hard drive at an excellent price. The enclosure is fanless, and is made of aluminium to take heat away from the internal disk. The separate power brick seems to be a good quality one. It came formatted ready to use on Windows and had over a gigabyte of Toshiba utilities on it. I actually wanted to use it with Linux, so I reformatted it with EXT3 and XFS file-systems instead.

I had another purpose for the disk drive inside the enclosure (put it into a home server) so after a few weeks of use, I decided to void the warranty and open up the unit. There are about 12 screws holding it all together and it isn't difficult to open. Inside is a Green Economy Western Digital 8Mb cache SATA hard drive. I have put a Maxtor 320Gb SATA drive into the enclosure instead (The SATA data and power connections matched up perfectly to the Western Digital ones).

Happy with my purchase - a re-usable SATA enclosure and a very cheap 1Tb hard drive which I was able to re-purpose elsewhere.
