Jarques, South Africa. 8 April 2016

I was really very pleasantly surprised by how small this drive actually is! It fits into my hand! USB 3 compatibility is very handy.

David, South Africa. 8 April 2016

So far so good. I like the shape of the drive and its good looking LED light. A bit thicker and heavier than smaller drivers. But the price per TB was much lower than buying individual drives. Here's to a long life!

Sean, South Africa. 18 April 2016

Great drive, good value for money.
Awesome to take loads of mobile storage.

Western, South Africa. 14 April 2016

A compact little drive that does what it says on the tin with its small form factor and large capacity. Surprisingly, it is pretty quick as well with the Blackmagic Speed Test returning read and write speeds that touch on 100MB/s.

Riaan, South Africa. 17 May 2016

So far, so good. Light, quiet and quick. Just what I needed.

Tauriq, South Africa. 3 February 2016

Performs as required however does not register on my Samsung TV as a media source, however my 2x 2TB WD portable drives do. Not sure what the issue is

Jackie, South Africa. 23 May 2016

Very happy

Karen, South Africa. 15 April 2016

A bit disappointed that I placed and paid for the order 1 day before the daily deal.
Other than that a good 3TB portable hard drive, twice as heavy compared to the 1TB but you get about 2.7TB worth of space. The bottom side has a rounded edge whereas the top is flat.

Irvine, South Africa. 30 December 2016

Had to figure out how to reformat as exfat. Got that right by running disk utility. Now up and running. Its 3TB and thats a lot for a portable drive this size and price is good

Andre, South Africa. 21 October 2016

value for money works well

Armandt, South Africa. 12 May 2016

Brilliant external drive with lots of space. Love Takealot products

Arthur, South Africa. 8 April 2016

As expected, the drive is fast. Thanks

Trevor, South Africa. 18 April 2016

I'm currently using 4 of these drives for rotational offsite backups at my company(I'm in the IT department, just to be clear).Value for money on these drives are great. A 3TB portable for 2 grand is fantastic. The drives are small(Can literally fit the drive into my top pocket.) and easy to use. No external power needed. USB 3.0 which means when plugged into a USB 3 port(The blue one.) Transfer speeds are exceptional. The only point which doesn't give this drive 5 starts is that it not military grade drop, dust and shock proof like some transcend drives.(I've used them personally and they really do stand up to the test.) Although I new this when I bought the drives originally which i weighed up with price vs value vs features. For everyday use or for an expansion drive that stays connected to your computer, i would recommend these drives without a doubt.

Brilliance, South Africa. 19 April 2016

Muhammad, South Africa. 12 July 2017

it's a piece of shit

Joseph, South Africa. 3 August 2017

For a USB 3 device it copies really slow around 22MB/s where my 2TB and 1TB WD portable drives hit a nice 80-90MB/s. I really don't want to wait an hour to move 50GB of data.

Adrian, South Africa. 4 October 2017

Great drive. Quick enough and at a good price point

Note: if you are wanting to use this for Xbox One.
You cannot partition the drive. Xbox One will format and allocate the entire HD for the console

Raymond, South Africa. 7 August 2017

I love the external drive.

Jonathan, South Africa. 31 October 2017

Wayne, South Africa. 10 November 2017

Kevin, South Africa. 28 July 2017

Nice looking unit. Slim and lightweight. Could do with some rubber feet/pads on the underside to prevent the unit from sliding whilst being used on a desk.
