PRESS RELEASE

The perfect way to combine style and versatility

10th March 2016, Neuss, Germany – Toshiba Europe GmbH (TEG) Storage Peripherals Division today announces the launch of the Canvio Premium portable hard drive, allowing easy, secure and safe file storage.  With diamond-cut edges, the sleek and stylish, high-quality aluminium Canvio Premium is ideal for use with high-end notebooks and includes a USB Type-CTM adapter to connect with top-of-the-range devices. This sophisticated external HDD available in silver and dark grey metallic is perfect for the modern lifestyle-oriented consumer looking for a superior storage unit.

Able to store even large digital libraries with up to 3TB[1] storage capacity, the Canvio Premium is perfect for the fashion-conscious wanting to keep their precious movies, music and photos safe. Pocket-sized and easy to carry with a soft pouch included, it combines practicality with a fast USB 3.0 port, making transfers at home, work or on-the-go speedy and straightforward. 

For added convenience, remote access software means users don’t even need to carry the Canvio Premium to access their files. With Canvio Premium at home, connected to a laptop[2], users can still access all of their files, photos, music and movies on any computer, smartphone or tablet. The external HDD also comes with 10GB of free cloud storage for “always-available” copies of important files.

Because it can be locked with a unique password, users do not have to worry about unauthorised users accessing important data stored on the hard drive. For convenience, backup software supplied with the drive allows scheduling of automatic backup at any time and any day.

The Canvio Premium is also available in a Mac ready-use model, the Canvio Premium for Mac, already formatted with HFS+ for daily use with Mac devices, making it possible to transfer data from and to a Mac without the need to reformat. The devices are available in dark grey metallic and silver metallic, in capacities of 1 TB, 2 TB and 3 TB. The drives will be on the market from mid-April and the TPP starts at 66 GBP for 1TB. From March 14th to 18th the new premium hard drive will be presented at the CeBIT 2016 together with the whole storage line-up of Toshiba in hall 14, booth H52.

[1] Definition of capacity: Toshiba defines a megabyte (MB) as 1,000,000 bytes, a gigabyte (GB) as 1,000,000,000 bytes and a terabyte (TB) as 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1GB = 230 = 1,073,741,824 bytes and therefore shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files) will vary based on file size, formatting, settings, software and operating system, such as Microsoft Operating System and/or pre-installed software applications, or media content.  Actual formatted capacity may vary.

[2] Canvio Premium or Canvio Premium for Mac must be connected to a PC and internet. (PC must be on or in stand-by mode).
