Description

Thanks to its size of 2.5 inches, the Toshiba Canvio Alu 2TB Black external hard drive lets you easily bring all your photos and videos with you in your backpack. The aluminum casing and the integrated shock sensor make the hard drive resilient. Make an automatic backup of the folders you've selected at fixed times with the included NTI Backup Now EZ software.

  • Pros:
    price quality ratio is great
  • Pros:
    metallic surface looks sleek
  • Pros:
    small and super portable
  • Con:
    disconnects from mac if not plugged directly
  • Con:
    need to reformat for mac

im quite happy with it. looks great and works like a charm from the beginning. my only beef with it is that if it is not directly plugged into the computer, it keeps on disconnecting. for a mac user this can be a pain, since apple in all its wisdom decided that the less usb ports the better, meaning i have to give up either my keyboard or my mouse in order to connect it.
