500GB External Hard Drive

Toshiba SDD has launched the latest in its personal storage devices with the 500GB USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drive. Designed to be USB powered only, and complete with an internal shock sensor and ramp loading technology for drive and data protection, users can store files, music, video, or any form of digital memory. Capacity for the device theoretically provides storage for either 142,000 digital photos, 131,000 digital music files, 222 of DVD-quality video, or 58 hours of HD video. The hard drive also contains pre-installed NTI Shadow software to allow backups to start automatically while running in the background.

The device is said to be roughly the size of a postcard and weighs about six ounces. Toshiba describes the drive as compatible with Windows XP, Vista, and Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later, and prices it at $180.
