Toshiba (http://www.toshibastorage.com) has introduced the CanvioM 3.0 portable hard disk drive (HDD) featuring a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface. It’s available in storage capacities of 500 GB, 750GB or 1TB for US$119.99, $129.99 and $179.99, respectively.
Canvio 3.0 drives are backward compatibility with personal computers and other devices equipped with USB 2.0 ports. Which is good for Mac users as Macs don’t currently support USB 3.0.
Canvio 3.0 drives offer password-protection with up to 256-bit data encryption. On the inside, an internal shock sensor and ramp loading technology keep data safe during day-to-day movement from a desk, pocket, bag, or beyond, says Manuel Camarena, product manager for consumer storage at Toshiba Storage Device Division. The product maintains the same dimensions as previous Canvio products.
