Toshiba has rolled out some new storage products that are aimed at different user groups. One of the products is an external hard drive that connects via USB 3.0 and offers two capacities called the Canvio Desk Desktop External Hard Drive. The other product is a hybrid internal storage drive aimed at notebook users.




The desktop USB 3.0 hard drive is offered in 4TB or 5TB capacities. The USB 3.0 interface will make moving data to and from the drive faster. Toshiba designed the drive so that it can be placed in vertical or horizontal orientations for more placement flexibility.


Backup software called NTI Backup Now EZ ships with the external storage solutions to keep your data safe and secure. The internal drive is a 2.5-inch Internal Solid State Hybrid Drive. That product is aimed at notebook users wanting to upgrade. It combines traditional HDD tech with NAND flash for better performance without giving up capacity.


The hybrid drive is offered in 500GB or 1TB capacities for $129.99 and $179.99 respectively. The USB 3.0 drive is available for $249.99 for the 4TB version and $299.99 for the 5TB version. Both products are available right now.
