Conclusion: The Toshiba Canvio Slim II is a good all-around portable drive, with lots of storage space and easy compatibility with PCs and Macs alike.
Pros: Stylish design conceals formidable 1TB storage capacity. USB 3.0 connectivity makes it speedy, while preinstalled tools make it easy to back up and protect your data, and jump from PC to Mac without difficulty.
Excerpt: In this group, the Toshiba Canvio initially came across as the vanilla stepchild—nothing to get excited about, at least in this company, given its bland exterior and specs. We tested the 1.5TB version of the drive, which is the highest capacity offered by Toshiba. Surprisingly, it’s almost as thick as the 2TB WD drive despite its 500GB capacity deficit, so the lesson here is that if you’re going big on a USB drive, prepare to be toting around a Hot Pocket -size...
Pros: Sizable capacity; great software, affordable
Cons: Cloud storage trial didn’t work, no specs stand out
Summary: The Toshiba Canvio with its good performance doesn’t surprise us. Most of the drives we’ve tested in the past come with more or less the same kind of scores. The USB 2.0 speed limitation has never made external portable hard drives an exciting space. The Canvio 1TB unfortunately is no different. The larger capacity and the pricing is what makes or breaks this product. The MRP for the product was stated at Rs. 10,990. The market price on the other hand is around Rs.
Conclusion: Overall, Toshiba 500GB Canvio USB 3.0 works as a great solution to share or transport digital content. With speeds of 5400 RPM, this external HDD deliver quality and reliability to great performing laptops, workstations, gamer systems, and even middle ?of ?the ?road laptops and netbooks.
