Introducing the Canvio Home, a new versatile NAS from Toshiba

Toshiba launches new NAS aimed at personal home storage to compete against Western Digital's My Cloud devices

Hot off of its acquisition of OCZ, Toshiba has unveiled a new home cloud storage product line named Canvio Home. The new home NAS series is designed to compete directly with Western Digital's My Cloud series of devices, and to provide a quick and easy solution to those users who need home network storage, but do not want to go the DIY Route.


Toshiba says that the Canvio Home series works with Windows, Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Android devices as well. Toshiba has built dedicated apps for the Canvio line which can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and Google Play to allow remote access to your device when not at home. Additionally, Toshiba says that the Canvio Home series is DLNA certified, and is capable of streaming media to any TV or other device that supports DLNA streaming.

The Canvio Home series of NAS devices come in 2TB and 3TB flavors an are available now for under $300 for the top model. With more personal cloud storage devices coming out every month, I am betting that these prices will drop over the next year to something close to external HDD pricing, if previous storage trends are any indication.
