Easy storage at super speed

Canvio Ready

Toshiba’s Canvio Ready external hard drive uses USB 3.0 technology for transfer speeds of up to 5 Gbit/s – and with plug-and-play technology, you’re able to quickly save and secure up to 4 TB of media to a compact, portable device. The Canvio Ready includes ramp load design that prevents damage to the disk while mobile, and a shock sensor that will cut the power to protect data in the event of physical stress – so you can rest assured that your files are safe.
