This is the age of internet and computer.As the the reaches of modern technologies expanding with every day,requirement for data storage units is also reaching to its pinnacle.Although modern computer science has provide many solution for common people such as cloud technology.But there are data security risks there.So people need a personal data storage drive so that they can keep their sensitive data safe.There are a lot of <a href='https://www.vplak.com/computer-accessories/external-hard-disks'>portable hard drives</a> are available in market.So we need to keep a few points in mind to buy the best possible drive.
1.Drive should be compact,small and lightweight so we can keep it with us when ever required.
2.Data storage capacity.
3.Backup and data security programs and their strength.
4.Compatibility with multiple device.
5.And last if may,you can look for its looks.
Now I have a drive in mind,about which I want to share a few specs.<a href='https://www.vplak.com/toshiba-canvio-basics-2tb-hdd-external-hard-disk-drive-hdtb320ak3ca-p88'>Toshiba Canvio Basic 2 TB external portable hard disk</a>is a drive which fulfils all these conditions in a satisfying way.Its a solid state drive.Its a tiny 2TB external hard drive supports a USB 3.0 interface and currently has the highest storage capacity for a 2.5-inch form factor.Its much cheaper than other competitors in the market in this product range.
The part where canvio creates a big gap among all is bundled applications.The Canvio is preloaded with Pogoplug and NTI Backup (Now EZ) which allows you to access the drive remotely and backup your data respectively. The former alone costs a lot to buy separate and comes with 10GB online cloud storage for free and NTI's application can't be bought on its own.
Canvio is ridiculously small in size ,size of your palm if needed to be compared with something . It weighs 230 gms and has dimensions of 111 x 79 x 20.5mm.There is a white LED on the front that lights up when the drive is on.
Most likely Toshiba has used MQ01ABB200 ; it is a 15 mm model that has four 500GB platters, a 5,400RPM rotational speed, 8MB buffer and an average seek time of 12ms/22ms in read/write.
If you are interested in something Compact,trusted and cheaper hard drive then this is it.It has ample storage,not to be mentioned that it can slip in your back pocket, and has some really good stuff in it bundled applications(Pogoplug, free online storage, backup application).
In simple words , Only a Tosibha Cavio basic can beat a Toshiba 2TB Canvio Basic USB 3.0 drive.
