Secure your files with Toshiba Canvio Ready

One of the known names in the realm of electronic giants, Toshiba, has added another item on their list of products with the entry of the Canvio Ready.

Toshiba external hard drives are known for their simple design that gives them a minimalist aura. The Toshiba Canvio Ready is no different. Available in elegant black, the drive’s rough chassis with chic dot pattern makes it easy to grip, and its small body aids its portability.

The Toshiba Canvio Ready works with USB 3.0 interface, and is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0. Also, the drive can be modified to HFS+ file system for optimum Mac compatibility.

Unlike other hard drives, the Toshiba Canvio Ready requires no software installation. Once unboxed, the drive is ready to use. One thing that we like about it is its drag-and-drop and plug-and-play technology which allowed us to transfer, view, and play files expediently.

The Canvio Ready also has 256-bit hardware encryption which ensures file security. Plus, it has an internal shock sensor, easing away our worries of having a couple of lost and damaged files due to the drive’s physical stress.

The Toshiba Canvio Ready is available in 500GB, 1TB, 2TB, 2.5TB, and 3TB capacities. What we got in our lab is the 1TB variant. To define its performance, we ran the Anvil’s Storage Utilities Benchmark Test. It is used to determine the drive’s read and write speed. The Toshiba Canvio Ready obtained 107.58 MBps in sequential read and 106.39 MBps in sequential write, which means it can transfer large files fast and easy.


Overall, the Toshiba Canvio Ready is a decent, reliable, and portable buddy that will certainly suffice your basic storage needs.
