Toshiba Gulf unveils latest CANVIO portable hard drives
New CANVIO PREMIUM and the CANVIO ADVANCE portable hard drives deliver up to 3TB in a sleek design
The Toshiba portable hard drive storage portfolio is getting a major upgrade.
The Toshiba CANVIO PREMIUM and the CANVIO ADVANCE now offer flexible capacity with 1TB, 2TB and 3TB options and slimmer 2TB design than previous models.
The CANVIO PREMIUM series offers versatile connectivity in a sleek design with an aluminium finish and diamond-cut edges in silver metallic or dark grey metallic. The top of the device is flat, making it easy to store, and curves have been minimised to emphasise the thinness of the drive and give it a sharper look.
It is accompanied by USB Type-A to USB Type-C adapter that can be inserted in any orientation for easy connectivity to everything from notebooks to high-end desktop PCs. The 2TB devices in the Premium line have a 13.5mm profile, 5.5mm slimmer than the previous model. The 1TB devices also have a 13.5mm profile and the 3TB devices have a 19mm profile.
The CANVIO ADVANCE series has a flat design and four colour options – black, white, blue or red – with a glossy finish. The 2TB devices in the Advance line have a 14mm profile, 5.5mm slimmer than the previous CANVIO CONNECT model. The 1TB devices have a 14mm profile as well, and the 3TB devices have a 19.5mm profile.
“We are always striving to create more compact, high-capacity devices to handle the growing amount of digital content that today’s consumers need to store,” said Santosh Varghese, general manager, MEA at Toshiba Gulf FZE.
“Achieving 1TB per platter capacity is a major milestone that allowed us to create our densest storage solution yet. These new drives offer high-capacity storage in an easy-to-use, slimmer design, making it more convenient than ever for consumers to store their files.”
The brand new Toshiba backup software is available for download, enabling users to easily back up important data through an improved user interface with option to set your own backup schedule. Additionally, the brand new Toshiba security software allows for simpler password setting with a more intuitive user interface so users can protect private data and prevent unauthorised access.
The CANVIO PREMIUM and CANVIO ADVANCE models will be available from 8th October-2017.
