You have to appreciate a good external hard drive that faithfully ferries important data from one place to another, while safely stashed on a drive that’s wrapped inside a slick-looking, durable chassis. These days, the storage capacity on a typical and relatively inexpensive external hard drive is large; 1TB is a standard size, and it isn’t at all uncommon to see 2TB drives, too. We looked at a few external hard drives from Toshiba, WD, and LaCie, all with similar specs to see how they stacked up against one another. All three of the units in our test bank employ a speedy USB 3.0 interface with capacities that range from 750GB to 1TB in size and, as it happens, all three are compact... Read more...

There's slim, and then there's Toshiba's Canvio Slim II. The company's second-generation drive follows up on a successful launch last year, with this one offering up as much as 1TB of internal storage space and measuring just 12.5mm thick. It's easily one of the thinnest and smallest on the market in terms of external HDDs, and it relies on USB 3.0 in order to keep those transfers brisk. For those seeking remote access, you'll find it here.  As long as Toshiba’s Canvio Slim II is connected to an Internet-enabled PC that is powered on and active, users will have complete access to their files, music, movies and photos from any device — no matter if they are home or away. ...

1TB may not quite be the new black, but it's getting close. And that's just the way we like it. As capacities increase across the board, more and more external HDD makers are looking to get the biggest drive(s) possible into their products. Toshiba isn't as popular as Western Digital or LaCie in the external hard drive market, but a 1TB drive with good looks may go a long way in changing that.The new Canvio is a bold new step for Toshiba, and if they continue to style their drives like this, we may have to re-consider what's "okay" in terms of HDD styling.
