Warren, South Africa. 18 February 2014

I bought a few of these drives and they are durable and portable. The included one touch auto-backup is also convenient.

annaline, South Africa. 25 April 2013

Great product and easy to put in your handbag or notebook bag with your notebook and the rugged rubber finishing was just what I wanted.Transcend products never let me down, so I am satisfied.

Mike, South Africa. 11 July 2015

No problems with this drive. Have 3 already and just ordered the fourth. Very fast on USB3 and pretty good on older USB2 as well. Highly recommended!

Clint, South Africa. 28 October 2015

Bought mine 3 years ago from Takealot, this thing is built like a tank (but without the weight) and is super reliable. If it was ever lost, stolen or broken, I would definitely buy another.

Jason, South Africa. 21 January 2015

This is my second one, and I actually bought it for a friend - mine goes with me anywhere and is very handy and reliable.
I usually buy WD drives, but this one is hard-wearing and well worth the money.

Carin, South Africa. 6 June 2014

I just received my hard drive. It looks and feels really solid. Just one point - in the description it states that a Y-cable is supplied, but the cable in the box is not a Y cable.

Phillip, South Africa. 14 April 2014

If ever you're looking for "the best" external hard drive for backup purposes then look no further! Not only is this hard drive sleek and stylish, its super light and padded all around to offer support for those accidental "oopsies".

The read and write speed on these little monsters are extremely fast, I was copying a few hundred gigabytes of backup files at over 100MB/s at USB 3.0 it just makes backing up and restoring your files a complete breeze!

While the device is operating you cannot hear it, at all, owing to its brilliant casing. As an added bonus it also has a one-touch backup button that you can push to have your data automatically backed up once you install the provided software that comes on the drive itself.

Christina, South Africa. 25 February 2014

I have the 500 gig portable drive and was so happy with it that I got the TB one. Its hardy, I can use it anywhere with my laptop and I don't have to worry about my data getting lost when it happens to bump against something for example.

Gia, South Africa. 10 November 2015

Great quality, strong build, quiet. The only issue I have had with this drive over the last 3 years is that if the drive is moved at all it tends to disconnect from whatever it is connected to.

Herman, South Africa. 9 August 2014

Great portable. No problems after long time use. Protective casing is very durable. Highly recommended!

Zanie, South Africa. 9 October 2013

Such a small and compact product. Extremely durable and reliable. Highly recommended!

uno, South Africa. 24 May 2015

Super fast, used to work great until recently. The USB connector is somehow only working intermittently causing the HDD to disconnect and 'unplug' from the computer.

Ferri, South Africa. 19 May 2014

Excellent build-quality - sturdy, rugged and appealing appearance.

Marcel, South Africa. 1 June 2015

The best external hard drive ever.
My first one is 4 years old and had fallen a couple of times and still working.
That is why I got my self another one :).
I really recommend it.

Ida, South Africa. 9 January 2017

Great product
Value for money

Ayesha, South Africa. 12 March 2015

Great product

lee, South Africa. 8 November 2016

Awesome product. Got mine more than a year now and still happy with my purchase

Tracy, South Africa. 6 July 2015

The delivery was extremely fast. I started using the product and so far i am very happy with this hard drive.

Jasper, South Africa. 25 January 2017

I just love this type of soft touch externals. I am a bit rough, so this just keeps better.

Glenn, South Africa. 10 November 2015

My Transcend 1TB lasted 2 years before it crashed, taking my photograph collection with it. I took it in to a recovery expert who managed to recover about 60% of my work at a cost 3x that of a replacement HD. Make sure you back up to more than one HD and when you start getting strange messages saying that you need to format the drive (which you've been using for years)prepare yourself for a crash in the days / weeks to come.

Lerato, South Africa. 8 February 2016


Warren, South Africa. 6 April 2016

Bought the same product about 4 years ago and it has been through quite a bit. I dropped it several times and it's has been shared with many people. I have not had one problem with it. Best for value, best on the market

Micheala, South Africa. 20 April 2017

This item is amazing, feels and looks wonderful. Transcend is by far the best Hard Drive in this price range. Have had mine for close to 3 years now and it is still going strong. Definitely worth the purchase.
