There's more to store these days, and PC users may find that hard drive space is a precious commodity. Look into the Toshiba 1.5TB Canvio 3.0 Portable Hard Drive (Black) and you may find a simple solution that you didn't even know you were looking for.

This portable hard drive has room for everything you need - storage of personal files, documents, music, movies, and photos - as well as several features that some other portables don't. Notable are the data encryption (256-bit), and file, folder, or full system backup and recovery. There is also an internal shock sensor to guard against drops and accidents, and ramp loading technology that keeps heads parked off the drive when not in use.

The unit is ready right out of the box for PC users, but there is an included NTFS driver so Mac users can also share in the 1TB capacity. This drive even offers Drive Space Alerts which alert you when you are running low on space. It does practically everything for you - why not do something for your PC or laptop and help keep yourself organized with the Toshiba 1.5TB Canvio 3.0 Portable Hard Drive?

USB 3.0
A hard drive is simply storage - the transfer rate is the key to fast and reliable data transfer. With USB 3.0 connectivity, you can be assured of transfers as fast as 4.8Gbps. If you do not have a USB 3.0 port, the unit is still compatible with USB 2.0.
Simple Storage
The enormous 1.5TB capacity of this drive is more than enough to store your digital files, including photos, movies, and music. The 1.5TB Canvio is capable of storing up to 428,000 digital photos, 394,000 digital music files, or 1,230 downloaded digital movies (capacity may differ based on file size, formatting, settings, software, operating system and other factors).
Integrated Cloud Backup
Included with this unit is a free 30-day trial of Toshiba's cloud service storage option.
Pre Loaded Backup Software
The unit comes preloaded with NTI Backup NOW EX software for added security and data protection.
Shock Sensor
Thanks to a special internal shock sensor and ramp loading technology, you'll be well guarded against accidents and drops for greater peace of mind.

        Comments about Toshiba 1.5TB Canvio 3.0 Portable Hard Drive (Black):

        I use this for periodic backup, so it doesn't get a lot of heavy use. It's certainly small enough to function as a portable drive. It was very easy to set up, and I haven't had any problems, though I've only had it a few weeks. My only slight complaint is that it could be faster, and when I initially access the drive it takes several seconds to wake up. Other than that, everything is fine.

              Bought this as a repacement for another external drive. A great price for a small package. Only shortcoming for me personally is the backup software I found to be bloated and inferior to other products. Nonetheless, for the drive alone a great value!

                I use my 1.5TB Canvio 3.0 to transfer files from another laptop and external hard drive. The files I was transferring were extensive including documents, pictures, pdf's and video clips. The process of extracting over 400GB went smoothly. I find this product so convenient since I only have to plug it into my USB and "walla." It's a great compact portable device with giant capabilities. Thanks Toshiba!
