Toshiba Canvio Slim II portable external hard drive
Hard drives are dime a dozen in the market, and if you are a road warrior who prefers to work on your notebook than being tethered to a desktop PC, surely you would have found a portable hard drive to come in handy on more than one occasion. A portable hard drive would be even more of an essential tool if you so happen to be an Ultrabook user, as most Ultrabooks that carry just SSD storage these days come in 128GB configurations, although there is the more pricey option of topping up some cash to bring home 256GB of storage space. Assuming you are in the market for a portable hard drive, might we point your attention to the recently announced Toshiba Canvio Slim II?
Arriving in 500GB and 1TB capacities, the Toshiba Canvio Slim II holds the distinction of being one of the thinnest and smallest portable hard drives that are currently available on the market, in addition to boasting of the ability to access and share data directly from the device. You will find that transfer speeds can be blazing fast, especially when you hook up the Toshiba Canvio Slim II to a computer or notebook that has a USB 3.0 port, although those running on older systems need not fret as it will still support the more ancient USB 2.0 format. Not only that, another bright point of the Canvio Slim II would be its ability to provide you access to your stored files – be they music, movies, photos, or work documents, remotely, as long as it is hooked up to an always-on Internet-enabled PC.
Toshiba knows how the cloud has already grown to be a relatively important tool for road warriors these days, and hence they have decided to throw in another 10GB of free cloud storage so that you can always access copies of important files regardless of where you are, as long as you have an Internet connection. The Toshiba Canvio Slim II allows enables users to perform a back up of videos and photos directly from smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices which happen to carry the corresponding iOS or Android app to the external hard drive, now how about that?
