    Comments about Toshiba 500GB Liquid Blue USB Portable Hard Drive:

    Set-up on my iMac was easier than expected. However, on my Toshiba laptop, it was more cumbersome. Required 2 or 3 attempts; thus, one star is deducted. Overall, it works as stated.

    On a PC, there are graphics displaying what and when a back-up occurred. On the iMac, there's simply the date and time. Now I wish I had two, one for each computer. Given its compact size, very little desk space is taken. I just wish the power cord was an inch longer for my iMac, because the USB port is on the back. And it is much quieter than my Apple Time Capsule back-up device. In fact, I do not notice when it's in use unless I look at the tiny blue light. It just completed a back-up, and I only noticed after checking the time recorded.

    I would definitely buy this product again. And the color blue does not scream at you like the higher capacity red unit. Oh, the first complete back-up may best be conducted overnight. Mine required 12+ hours.
