Toshiba stuffs 3TB into its latest portable hard drives

Toshiba Canvio Connect 2

Portable hard drives don’t typically hold nearly as much data as their desk-bound counterparts, but Toshiba is closing that gap in a big way. Both its simple Canvio Basics drives and sharing-friendly Canvio Connect II models (shown above) are some of the first reasonably portable drives to carry 3TB — well over the 2TB you’ve seen before, and enough that they’re more likely to have room for your 4K videos and giant photos. They don’t have any fancy new tricks in store, although that extra space could come in handy for the Connect II’s PogoPlug-based remote access and bundled backup software. Mum’s the word on pricing at the moment. With that said, it’s safe to say the 3TB models will cost more than a similarly sized disk for your desktop.
