Toshiba has announced 100GB, 120GB and 160GB external 2.5-inch HDDs that connect to USB 2.0 ports.
The Toshiba USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drive is automatically powered through a USB cable when the computer is turned on for switch-free on/off functions. Bundled with the award-winning NTI Shadow software, the back-up solution eliminates the need to push a button or click an icon to activate back-up once parameters are set. The NTI Shadow software runs in the background, capturing updates to files and automatically saving them to the external
drive. The often tedious back-up process is further simplified by choosing continuous or specific days, times and frequencies for back-up operation in the set-up process.
Packaged in sleek black aluminum housing with a blue power-on indicator light, the
Toshiba USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drive is an attractive complement to any notebook or
desktop PC. At 5.6-inches long by 3.5-inches wide and less than one inch tall (142.08mm by
88.0mm by 23.65mm), the drive is a space-saver on the desktop. The new external hard drive
incorporates Toshiba’s all-new, patent-pending shock mounting and ventilation system for a
trouble-free mobile storage solution. For added security, Toshiba is including a one-year limited
warranty program for its personal storage devices.
The Toshiba USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drives will be available in Spring 2007. Prices will start at $139.99.
