Toshiba has introduced the StorE steel and StorE art portable hard drives:
StorE steel – minimalist design made from glossy steel
It is the minimalist and elegant design that makes the StorE steel unique. The casing is made up of a glossy, scratch and smudge resistant stainless steel design that is available in three different metallic colours: titanium, silver and gold. Customers can choose between a 1.8’’ and a 2.5’’ hard disk. The 1.8’’ version measures 10.3 cm x 6.3 cm x 1.4 cm and offers a storage capacity up to 160 GB. The 2.5’’ hard disk drive can store up to 500 GB of digital content.
Measuring 12.7 cm x 7.8 cm x 1.3 cm it is small enough to fit easily into a laptop carry case. Furthermore the drives are very lightweight, despite their steel casing, and weigh only 120g and 190g respectively. Above all there is no need for an external power supply as StorE steel is powered via USB interface.
StorE art – the art of storage
Your storage device can be as personal as your digital content with the new StorE art. The first devices will be available in glossy black. More colourful designs will soon follow.
StorE art ideal for customers looking for a robust, portable solution to back-up or store large quantities of data.
The range comes in three sizes: a 1.8’’, 2.5’’ and 3.5’’ hard disk drive. The 1.8’’ and 2.5’’ hard disks weigh between 106g and 175g, making them ideal solutions for either using at home, in the office or while on the move. Both are powered by USB, making them even more desirable to carry round. Despite the small size of the hard disk drive, which isn’t much larger than a typical smartphone, the 1.8’’and 2.5’’ StorE art offer a storage capacity between 120 GB and 500 GB.
For users with large amounts of multimedia data, the high capacity version of StorE art, with its 3.5’’ hard disk drive, provides between 500 GB to 1000 GB of storage. As a desktop solution, this model required an external power supply.
