  • Conclusion: Note a trend: They're all called "Slim." Like we said in the beginning, since physics and the drive mechanisms inside dictate so much, these drives are by necessity similar. However, if you intend to rely heavily on the bundled software, rather than just using the drive as a drag-and-drop destination for files, you'll want to look at the contents of those bundles carefully. We preferred the more unified approaches of the Seagate and WD drives.
  • Pros: Aluminum-sided design, Activity light signals USB 2.0 or 3.0 connection, Nifty (if patchwork) software bundle, including password-protection utility
  • Cons: Use of password-protection utility requires foresight, No 2TB capacity, Slightly behind other 1TB portables in our tests

Toshiba Canvio 1 TB: Tough Terabyte

Tech2
13 March 2013
  • 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.
