Mobile Hard Disk Drives have gathered popularity in recent times. In fact it is only in the past few years that things have really picked up and this is due to the size of portable media being introduced. Once upon a time 3.5” solutions were the only available products on the market and carrying this size of device around with you is more of a hindrance than a solution. Such a large device can’t fit in your pocket, is difficult to transport and in some cases may even be heavy. But now we have a new generation of portable media hard disk drives - faster in speed and smaller in size.

The drive we are to look at today comes in at just 2.5” which is small enough to fit into your pocket. What’s more is that, 2.5” isn’t the smallest we can go to in this category of product either. In the last 12 months we have seen devices as small as 1.8” hit the market – the size of a credit card.

The Toshiba drive we are looking at today comes from the STOR.E Steel Series – a sleek, elegant portable stainless steel media solution with a choice of four colours and up to 640GB capacity. The drive we are looking at today has a capacity of 250GB. Before we take a look at this product in depth let’s see what Toshiba have to say about this product line.

Toshiba’s take
A slick, modern and minimalist design for one of the most elegant products in its category, the Store Steel hard drives offer a full range of exclusive and vibrant colours!
