Toshiba expands its range of storage drives with USB 3.0
The ongoing digitalisation of entertainment content is fuelling user demand for reliable external hard disk drives with large capacities and fast data rates. Many users want to transmit large files such as videos, music tracks and photos quickly between the backup medium and the computer. STOR.E STEEL S and STOR.E ALU 2S both feature a USB 3.0 port offering a data rate of up to 5 Gigabits per second. However, computers and peripheral devices with USB 2.0 only can still be used with these new state-of-the-art hard disk drives.

Large capacities for large digital media libraries
Both STOR.E STEEL S and STOR.E ALU 2S come with a 2.5’’ hard disk drive offering a capacity of up to 1TB. Powered through the USB connection, these two small and lightweight 2.5’’ high capacity storage devices are perfect for mobile use. STOR.E ALU 2S will also be available with a 3.5’’ hard disk featuring a capacity of up to 2TB for stationary use in the office or at home. It is targeted at users with huge digital video, music and photo libraries who need extraordinarily high storage capacity.
