  1. Best answer
    My own experience: Bought a Toshiba portable 3 years ago - - it failed within 6 months.

    Then bought a WD My Passport, no problems with it at all, still working after more than 2 years.

    Now, some people will no doubt have had the opposite experience as all makes of drive can have bad batches leaving the factory. But I can only speak from my experience, not someone else's.
  2. WD are better than Toshiba I would definitely always pick WD, the Toshiba will work but from performance, reliability and customer service I would pick WD.
