Toshiba Canvio The Best External Portable Hard Drive

Updated on December 4, 2013

Leading Innovation

Currently there are three leading manufacturers of portable external hard drive, Seagate, Western Digital and Toshiba. For the product features, they are almost the same. Speed, reliability, durability, they are all good. What I like most from Toshiba Canvio is the Shock Sensor and Ramp Loading Technology that cannot be found from Western Digital and Seagate. Aside from that, Toshiba Canvio External Hard Disk Drive offers a 3 year limited warranty compared to Western Digital and Seagate which only give 2 years limited warranty.

Shock Sensor and Ramp Loading Technology - Why is it a great advantage?

Western Digital have shock tolerance, On the other hand Toshiba have shock sensor, meaning, when your hard disk drive sense a rapid movement, before your hard drive fell or introduce to any kind of shock, your hard drive will keep your files safe. The needle will go back to its ramp and avoid scratching your hard disk that can cause corrupt or damage data. This is far better than shock tolerance offered by Western Digital.

      Thanks for all the good information; I wasted my money on a Western Digital it blew and I was told it would cost $1,000. to recover my data. Wish I read this Lens before I wasted $265 (this was back a couple of years ago, now external hard-drives are much more affordable, the last one I bought was under $100.).
