Toshiba Canvio Slim Portable Hard Drive Announced Discussion

6 posts in this topic

I'm planning on a Samsung 830 128GB notebook kit... but if I needed a 500GB USB3 to slip in a shirt pocket at a reasonable price, the Toshiba Canvio Slim looks like a winner! B)

We're expecting to see one before they hit the market, we'll see how it compares to the WD My Passport Edge for Mac. That's a very nice external as well.

These guys rarely quote the drive inside or much by way of performance for the branded products. I'd expect to see similar results as the WD Edge, but we'll see.

As to Thunderbolt- really? You'd want to pay a premium to get the Thunderbolt ports? They're not going to help with performance, what's your use case for the extra ports?

RPM?

Sustained transfer read/write?

Bring also the 2 x Thunderbolt + USB 3 version!

Call him Harpo - he's got too many pocket$... and they're way too deep!:P
