Toshiba adds new 4TB CANVIO Portable Hard Drive models for safe and reliable personal data storage

 Toshiba Electronics Europe GmbH today announces a new addition to its popular family of CANVIO external hard drives (HDDs), a 4TB[1]option in its PREMIUM, ADVANCE, BASICS and READY series.

In its continuous determination to optimize business and individual data storage capabilities, Toshiba presents its new 4TB capacity external portable hard drives, adding 33% more storage capacity than the previous 3TB models. The 4TB models are ideal for individuals and small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) that want to store large files and back up their data. Using 1TB platter technology allows the 4TB CANVIO models to maintain the same low-profile design as 3TB models. All models support Windows® [2] and Mac[3] operating systems and are compatible with both USB 3.0 and USB 2.0.

CANVIO HDDs combine a sleek, slim and stylish design with practical features such as a ramp-load design to prevent internal wear, plug-and-play functionality, and a range of more flexible capacity options of 500GB[4], 1TB, 2TB, 3TB, and now 4TB.

“With the new 4TB drives Toshiba strives to give our customers ever greater storage capacity as the personal or business requirements to store and back up data are increasing exponentially. The new drives combine cutting-edge technology within a portable, lightweight and attractive design.”, says Larry Martinez-Palomo, General Manager, HDD Business Unit, Toshiba Electronics Europe.

The CANVIO PREMIUM is the family’s flagship series and comes in a stylish aluminium-finish design with diamond-cut edges and options of silver or dark grey metallic. In addition to a USB Type-A to Type-C adaptor[5], the CANVIO PREMIUM offers free downloads of the Toshiba Storage Security Software for password protection; and the Toshiba Storage Backup Software which automatically backs up data at regular, user-defined intervals. All models come with a 3-year guarantee.

The CANVIO ADVANCE series is available in four colour options – black, white, blue or red – with a glossy finish. Like the PREMIUM model, the series offers free downloadable Toshiba Storage Backup Software and Storage Security Software for password protection and automated backup.

The CANVIO BASICS series comes in a minimalistic matte black design, and is ideal for a wide range of storage needs, from PC data, to video and audio file storage to photography.

The CANVIO READY series comes in a compact, chic black dotted unit. It is ready-to-use with the plug-and-play functionality, and provides space for large media libraries.

General availability of the new 4TB models will start in January 2019. For further information and the detailed product specifications on our full line of consumer HDD storage products,please visit:
