I have tried to get product support but nobody is able to help! The latest is that I have been given a number for product support when actually it goes through to Tina Webb's voicemail. The support guy said that that is the number that he has been using. WILD GOOSE CHASE!!!
I am gutted that I have lost my money for a device that doesn't work and also all of my files including my photos of my new born baby.
DO NOT BUY
Basically I bought a new LG 2018 4K Smart TV and needed the option to record. (I'm relying a lot on the built in tuner etc rather than a dedicated box.) This item came with some good reviews.
Have tried and tested (just plugged and played into USB port 1) No formatting needed. If your smart TV has the feature of being able to record then an HDD like this should be perfectly suitable for you. Once recorded you can have option to pause/rewind. Very nice and essentially completes the setup for me (I am trying to avoid bulky set top boxes)
This item is also much smaller than I thought. Am currently looking at a way to secure it to the back of the television (similar to an HDD bracket for PC) Would be much tidier this way.
I believe it also works fine for Samsung TV's. So expect it will work for all brands (AS long as your TV supports recording (many don't))
I wish I hadn't! It has corrupted and become unreadable after only 2 months. Luckily it was 'only' a backup.
Internal packaging by Toshiba is the reasonable inflated bubble wrap. The USB3 cable was folded up 4 times and as a result has 4 kinks in it, 2 of which are pretty brutal. The drive socket wasn't completely firm, a small bit of play was felt inserting and removing the cable. A bit more research revealed this type of socket is usually soldered to the drive's board and looking at the size of the drive (a footprint slightly SMALLER than a 50g tobacco tin!) it's very likely this socket is soldered to the drive, so if you're thinking you can remove the case if it fails at a later date and stick the drive in another case or computer, think again. This alone is why I removed a star. If the socket fails, a new one typically costs a fiver and that's before you learn to solder or pay someone else to do it. I'll probably wrap some tape around the end of the drive to limit the cable movement too but that's just me being paranoid, since during a file transfer to the Toshiba external drive, one of my internal drives kicked out a couple of Command Timeout errors in the SMART readout, something I've never seen in 18 months of owning my system. A thorough geek-esque system check revealed the Toshiba was totally blame-free :)
CrystalDiskMark & CrystalDiskInfo reveal more information. According to CDI, the drive is a SATA II drive. Not really an issue since USB3 speeds on my laptop max out around 130MB/s but is it really a SATA II? I hope it's not an old drive inside, I haven't seen anything but SATA III and NVMe in years. Still, CDM speed tests were pretty much what I hoped for - at best 131MB/s writing a 1GB file, 130MB/s writing and reading a 2GB file (I ran this test several times). SMART codes seemed perfectly normal at this point. Most of the time the speed hovered between 120-130MB/s whilst writing large files, occasionally it would drop to 80-90MB/s. A large folder of image files gave the typical snails pace you get from a HDD. All files transferred ok, although I discovered the transferred folder (42.2GB) was 5MB smaller than the source, despite being identical file systems (right down to cluster and sector size, on NTFS). No files are missing... Never seen that before in an identical setup but during the backups, I had a lot of "firsts" (and in 26 years of computing, I just wanted to put it down to my age lol).
Finally, the reason for the packaging comment at the start. During tests, I noticed the "Disk Shift" SMART output changing a few times. Exhaustive reading threw out several possibilities, not least one being external force - a package being tossed around, for example. I've had parcels from here that looked like they'd been kicked about. It's unacceptable and it likely reduces the lifespan of most sensitive devices. Idling, the Disk Shift output returns to zero. Whilst active, I've seen values from 1 up to 22, 14 has appeared a few times. It seems like the drive is shifting when running at full speed but no other errors have emerged yet.
Phew. Lastly, The auto power-off (1min or so) is a little annoying but considering how hot it gets (45C from 25C after a 10 minute file transfer) it's probably a good thing. Also, yesterday this drive was cheaper than the Seagate/Maxtor equivalents, today they're the same price - Something to bear in mind if, like me, you were comparing several drives and cost was a deciding factor. The drive seems to be exactly what it would be, great size, plenty of care needed to keep it in working condition but always treat your external drives with great care regardless. 1TB of course will show as approx 931GB in Windows. I run a dual-boot system (Win/Linux) and the drive works fine in both operating systems. Would I trust it with critical data? I don't know yet.
I have asked for my money back.
