Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"I hate the Touro USB cord!"
_
"It will plug in to any USB inlet but the plug into the actual unit weird and it will not take any other cord."
_
"although the drive works well, after less than 6 months the cable plug in to the drive connects erratically and will fail."
_
"Its very good; the only problem is the cable."
_
"It lasted for about 1 hour of usage before the attachment point for the USB cable broke off and fell inside the case."
_
"The only negative is that it uses a USB cable with what appears to be a proprietary connector on the drive end."
_
"Look for a drive with a molded cable or something more robust as a connection."
_
"although the drive works well, after less than 6 months the cable plug in to the drive connects erratically and will fail."
_
"Its very good; the only problem is the cable."
_
"The only minor problem I had is that the cable connecting to the drive itself comes out fairly easy (I had it come out at the end of the first backup and I had to do it all over... 4 hours again), but if you don't move the computer or the drive while in use, it works just fine."
_
"Note that USB 3.0 cables are different so you can't just swap them like the USB 2.0 cables where I use THOSE cables to access drives as well as charge cell phones that also have a mini-USB connection."

Case

Case:
"It was a good buy, but the part that you plug the usb into broke, so I had to buy a new case for it."
_
"It lasted for about 1 hour of usage before the attachment point for the USB cable broke off and fell inside the case."
_
"Also, MBs, usb chipsets, and or usb 3.0 drivers can be at fault (not my case).Following this experience I purchase an uspeed 3.0 external hdd dock (from Amazon) and plugged a WD 3.5 in 1 TB RE4 drive into it."
_
"The case is cheap plastic and it's sealed, you will not be able to swap drives."
_
"The case is highly durable--I accidentally dropped it on a tile floor and there wasn't even a scratch."
_
"The case is also sturdy and well built."
_
"Excellent case."
_
"Does not come with a case of any sort, but is easier to fit into one than others, and I'd like it to have some rubber feet or strips to prevent slippage, but that's the only con I've noticed thus far."
_
"It is remarkably small, but with a sturdy feeling case that has a matte finish that lends grip and resists fingerprints."

Connection

Connection:
"Connections seem to be the weak point in portable drives and this one is no exception."
_
"It made a few noises a week ago but the 3.0 usb connection isn't the best and I had to make an adjustment and then the noise would stop and the blue light would blink again all was fine."
_
"No matter how reliable a drive, they all (eventually) fail...but in my experience they frequently give off warning signs before they completely fail (odd noises, delay in connecting, etc)."
_
"The only minor problem I had is that the cable connecting to the drive itself comes out fairly easy (I had it come out at the end of the first backup and I had to do it all over... 4 hours again), but if you don't move the computer or the drive while in use, it works just fine."
_
"The Touro website is easy to navigate to read about how great the drive is, but it's fairly terrible about providing you with access to drivers--it assumes you'll connect smoothly and not need anything."
_
"There is one drawback: I've got more than one USB 3.0 drive, and if you don't use the exact cable that came with the Touro, you might have problems connecting."
_
"Look for a drive with a molded cable or something more robust as a connection."
_
"The only minor problem I had is that the cable connecting to the drive itself comes out fairly easy (I had it come out at the end of the first backup and I had to do it all over... 4 hours again), but if you don't move the computer or the drive while in use, it works just fine."
_
"this drive is very easy to connect and use."
_
"The blue LED indicator is a nice little feature to tell you it's connected."
_
"The Touro website is easy to navigate to read about how great the drive is, but it's fairly terrible about providing you with access to drivers--it assumes you'll connect smoothly and not need anything."
