pleased with, so I now decided by buy the 'Toshiba USB 3 & 2 500 GB Store.E'.
When I get home and open the sealed-box which is 10-times the volume of the
contents, I find that the device is probably just semi-conductor.
But you can't see that from the box-label, which is in 8 languages, and
tells: "Requirements. Windows XP/VISTA/Windows 7"
Screw Micro$loth who has forced Toshiba [also] in a way to try to FORCE
me to be married-to and continually paying [like to a narcotics dealer]
USB is an open standard and is NOT owned by Micro$loth.
What is the write-cycle-life-expectance of these semiconductor disks?
Would it be fraudulent if I put my silver-painted-plastic-spoon, next to
your genuine silver-spoons in the market?

That OS warning, could have to do with the state of USB drivers.
Windows 98 did not have good coverage in terms of USB drivers,
and there were a couple of third-party softwares to try to fix that.
What they're telling you, is it is "easy" to use, with the named OSes.
If you install on Windows XP/VISTA/Windows 7, it works right away, with
minimal work on your part.
It will also work with Linux, or Solaris, or FreeBSD, and so on.
If you wanted to use it with a Win98 machine, you had better be
knowledgeable about using the add-ons that make such machines useful.
KernelEx, Maximus Decim USB. Those are examples of things that might
help keep an old machine, young.
As for the contents of the product, the price you paid for it is an
indicator of what is inside. If the 500GB device cost $100, it has
a regular hard drive inside it. An SSD of that capacity is $400.
A hybrid drive (500GB rotating drive and 4GB of flash memory chips)
So if you got it for $100, it's a hard drive inside.

Yea, but the abusive monopolist Mico$loth has leveraged hardware
to be labeled as if any other OS is a perversion.
What threw my more is that the Xmas-Ads show [for 80% of the
Toshiba price]: "Verbatim 2.5" 500GB USB3 *Hard Drive* 5400RPM"
Which shows that it's appropriate to expose "Hard Drive...5400RPM"
