Great quality USB 3 portable drive at a good price! I was looking for a well made, self powered USB 3 hard drive. Only been using it for a few hours today to store music files, but it feels like I made a good choice here. The drive is silent in operation. It has a useful blue LED drive activity light at the cable end of the unit. The supplied cable is well made and around 40cms in length. The great thing about the drive is that I can use it with my USB 3.0 laptop or any other USB 2 based laptops or PC’s… A good deal in my book!

Good, but …. This works out of the box and looks neat (if rather understated). Seems fast enough with USB2 (faster with USB3) (but I haven’t done any proper speed tests). Doesn’t have any user software (an advantage in my opinion). Would have given it 5 stars but for supplied USB3 lead. This is short (about 44 cm incl. connectors), which isn’t particularly generous but seems typical for portable HDDs and may be sufficient for many people, but it’s also too stiff and inflexible. This, coupled with the light weight of the drive itself, becomes a nuisance (at least as I want to use it) because it tends to lift the drive and put pressure on the connection at the drive end. I don’t have much experience of USB3 leads – typically they seem thicker than USB1/2 leads – but I don’t believe it’s impossible to make them flexible enough to avoid this problem.

works well with my Mac I just used the Touro Mobile MX3 1TB to back up my MacBook Pro with no problem. This Mac has USB 2.0 connectors not USB 3.0, but the Touro is compatible with both types (ie the cable provided will connect to both types). I backed up approximately 200 Gb of files in about 135 minutes; that’s roughly 25 Mb/sec which is what I expected. With a USB 3.0 port you will probably get 3 or 4 times that speed. I checked that I could successfully recover a couple of files via Time Machine.As some reviewers have noted, the Touro is compact and lightweight – the USB cable that comes with it is short (about 43cm or 17″) and sturdy. It means that the disk tends to follow the cable, rather than vice-versa, but that will not be a problem for most users.My only slight criticism is that the box containing the disk has a list of contents;2.5″ portable driveUSB 3.0 cableQuick Start Guideand I searched for a couple of minutes for the ‘Quick Start…
