Toshiba Canvio Advance 2TB External Hard Drive Review

Rating: 7.5.

Toshiba recently refreshed their range of Canvio portable hard drives with the Canvio Premium, Advance and Basic models with capacities up to 3TB with HDD’s featuring Toshiba’s 1TB platter technology. In this review we look at the Canvio Advance drive to see if it’s worth buying.

The Canvio Premium and Advance ranges have drive capacities of 1TB, 2TB and 3TB while the Basic models come in 500GB, 1TB and 2TB sizes. By using Toshiba’s 1TB platter technology the drives are slimmer than previous models, for example the 2TB Advance we have for review has a 14mm profile, some 5.5mm slimmer than previous versions. All drive ranges use a standard USB 3.0 interface.

Toshiba back the drives with a 2-year warranty.

  • Interface: USB 3.0
