Toshiba America Electronic Components Inc. today announces a new addition to its popular family of CANVIO external hard drives (HDDs), a 4TB option in its ADVANCE, BASICS and READY series.
The 4TB option gives up to 33 percent extra storage (compared to 3TB) for consumers and small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) that want to store large files and back up their data. Using 1TB platter technology allows the 4TB CANVIO models to maintain the same low-profile design as 3TB models. All models support Windows® and Mac operating systems and are compatible with both USB 3.0 and USB 2.0.
CANVIO HDDs combine a sleek, slim and stylish design with practical features such as a ramp-load design to prevent internal wear, plug-and-play functionality, backup and security software (available on the ADVANCE models), and a range of more flexible capacity options of 1TB, 2TB, and now 4TB.
“The amount of data a person or company needs to store and back up is increasing exponentially. Toshiba constantly strives to give our customers cutting edge technologies with ever greater storage in a portable, lightweight and attractive design,” says Michael Cassidy, Vice President, Consumer HDD, Americas, at Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc.
The 4TB BASICS model is available now. General availability of the 4TB ADVANCE and 4TB READY models will start in January 2019. For further information and the detailed product specifications on our full line of consumer HDD storage products, please visit: http://storage.toshiba.com/consumer-hdd.
