Toshiba raises colours in portable storage battle

320GB 2.5in HDD

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Toshiba has added a touch of style to its portable hard drives, whilst also breaking a record. It claims to be the first manufacturer to launch a 320GB 2.5in form factor portable HDD.

The drive expands Toshiba’s existing range of portable 2.5in storage units, upping the range’s largest capacity from 250GB to 320GB. Each unit has a USB 2.0 data transfer connection and is bundled with NTI Shadow software for performing data backups.

2.5in form factor: Which colour floats your boat?

Stylish designs have also been added to the outer surface of each capacity drive, giving users the option of storing their precious files on either a Carbon Grey, Hot Rod Red or Gecko Green unit.

Additionally, Toshiba has created a range of 1.8in form factor 60GB, 80GB and 120GB USB Flash drives. Despite being physically smaller and able to store less data than their larger form factor counterparts, Toshiba claims the range will be shipped with encryption and backup software to aid their “designed for mobility” target.

Toshiba’s 2.5in 320GB capacity drive is available now for around $200 (£100/€140), although a European price hasn’t been confirmed. The range of 1.8in drives are expected to go on sale later this year.®
