Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I bought this drive for my friend as a birthday gift. I knew she had just bought a new HP laptop and I thought this would go well with it to complete the computer. However when her birthday arrived 2 months after purchase, the unit would not power up. I tried it on 4 different computers and it would not power up on any of the USB ports on any of the computers while other devices powered up and worked fine. Since it was already over the 30 return at Amazon before she received the drive I could not return it. I am unsure how to proceed since my friend now has a relatively expensive paperweight and I cannot send it back to the manufacturer.
Update: After posting a negative review the company contacted me and asked if a replacement drive would be acceptable since the original did not work. I gladly accepted the new drive and it works well. My friend is very happy and I am thankful that even though the initial drive was bad the customer service was great and made up...
Had to give it one star because the product just didn't t work. Tried on two different laptops - Windows 7 and Windows XP. Both attempt to recognize the drive and load the driver, but then they immediately un-recognize it and disconnect it. I purchased a different manufacturer's drive that same day, which worked like a charm as soon as I plugged it in. Teswell customer service was very persistent about replacing the defective drive (even offered me $12 to change my rating to 4 or 5 stars), but like I said, I had already purchased the replacement and was happy with it so I couldn't tell you if another Teswell drive would have worked or not.
Great little USB 3 drive. My HP laptop doesn't have DVD/CD drives any longer, and this works just fine when I need it. Works with Windows 10. Love It. ____________
Does not work with my Surface 3. My IT guy said Buffalo makes one that usually works, but not always. He had to get Microsoft tech support involved to have them help find one that the Surface will recognize. Even with a powered USB hub connected to the Surface, the Surface still won't recognize it.
