Review 2 for Toshiba Canvio Basics 500GB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive, Black

I just purchased the Toshiba Canvio 3.0 to use as backup drive on a MacBook Pro (running Lion). The MBP did not recognize the Canvio, so I plugged it into my iMac and it was easily recognized. I was able to try partitioning and reformatting the drive...but was still unable to have it be recognized by the MB Pro.
After a call to Apple Support and subsequently plugging it into a powered USB hub on the MBP, I was finally able to see the partitions. Annoying, but Toshiba should have included a Y-adapter to get more power to the drive if that's what it takes...
I plan on returning this drive b/c I don't always want to use a powered USB hub to get it to work on the MacBook Pro.
