Toshiba Portable HDDs

Toshiba this morning took its first steps into external hard drives by revealing the simply-named Portable External Hard Drive. A pocket drive with a 2.5-inch hard disk for storage, Toshiba's initial entry is notable for its easy, automated backup. The drive comes bundled with NTI's Shadow software for both Intel- and PPC-based Macs ans well as Windows PCs; once settings are chosen, Toshiba says, plugging the drive into the USB 2.0 port will automatically power it up and transfer data in the background without intervention. The enclosure is also made of a stylized black aluminum and showcases a unique, shock-resistant design by Toshiba that also safely vents trapped heat. The company plans a Spring launch for 100GB, 120GB, and 160GB versions that will start at prices of $140.
