Using perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR) technology, this advancement by Toshiba is a great data-storage addition to any traveling laptop, especially if you plan to use this device as your main system. Other options include form-factor computer system implementation, NAS storage or small portable HDD functions.

Set as an upgrade to their 4-platter 2TB MQ01ABB200 drive, this 3TB option provides the same low energy consumption values but with 50 percent more storage space.

Shipping in May 2015, there is no currently listed retail price.
