20% of the reviews on Amazon gave it one star due to total failure in 2-6 weeks of purchase.

Toshiba hard drives are horrible IMHO, would only give them as a present to my worst enemy.

Be aware this is a "desktop" drive, not a "portable" one. The upshot being, it's larger/heavier and can't run on USB power only. It requires a separate power adapter (included).

I've had good luck with the portable Canvio drive I own, which a 2TB. But of course, that's a different HDD product line inside the case.

I can't speak for this specific drive, but according to the studies by BackBlaze, Toshiba has some of the most reliable drives on the market, next to HGST.  That being said, the 3TB raw drive is rated one of the worst, so....

UPDATE: THE DATA WAS INCONCLUSIVE ON THIS SPECIFIC DRIVE.  OVERALL, TOSHIBA DRIVES ARE GIVING THEM VERY GOOD RESULTS.

Actually, if you read thru BackBlaze's scientific analysis of HD vendors, Toshiba makes some durn good drives.
