Does this work with the XBox one?

According to the Q&A on the mothership page, Yes… it will work with the XBox One

Is this a solid state drive?

According to the specs, the drive is 5400 rpm (revolutions per minute). So no it’s not a solid state drive.

Can I use this to backup my PC? (Like, will the backup/restore function from Windows work?)

I looked for an answer in Amazon questions on this product, did not find it.

I wish I could figure out a good way to back up my PC that has maybe a 400 Gig hard drive.

I use this WD external for my XB1…and its double the size for like another 13-18 bucks.


Unless you’re in love with the nice slim, metal case, $70 (shipped) is a high price for a 1 TB USB 3.0 portable hard drive.

Not at $70 shipped. A raw (no case or USB 3.0 interface) 1 TB SSD goes for around $300+ alone.

BB has a WD 1 TB drive for $50 with free shipping.
I will leave it to the reader to decide whether WD is better or worse than Toshiba

BTW, there are lots and lots of Q&A’s and reviews there about that drive that probably apply to any external USB attached drive.

I agree with those that said that this is not that great a deal…2TB harddrives can routinely be had in the neighborhood of $100. By today’s standards, a 1TB drive is relatively small considering all the multimedia files and such that are being stored.

How is this drive powered, and what is the interface (USB, HDMI, or something else)? Is a cable provided?

I am not aware of a currently available portable USB 3.0 drive (this drive) that is not solely powered by its USB cable.

Having said that, USB 3.0 cables are different at the drive end from USB 2.0 cables. Therefore it is hard to imagine a USB 3.0 drive that does not include a cable… this must be an error, but there it is on the specs tab - no cable mentioned:

Per the vendor: It is USB powered and includes an USB 3.0 cable. Thanks!

“wooting for more than 10 years…
I’m so old, i remember in the olden days when Woot just had ONE item, yes only ONE item a day…Oh and the b a g s of c r a p were actually interesting and possibly worth more than the price.”

I remember those days too. Where did the time go. :thinking:

Probably the same place my hair and one sock of a pair put in the dryer go… and never to be recovered. :frowning:

Yep. My hair also, and my memory. …Wait, what were we discussing again?:sunglasses:

Hard Drive Rotational Speed: 5400 rpm…not a SSD here.
