Resumee

The Toshiba Canvio Ready Hard Disk is not exactly the fastest hard drive in comparison to the competition, but it is sufficient for the average user and pleasantly quiet.

Pro

  • Inexpensive
  • Compact

Cons

  • Average speed

360° View

A sufficient hard disk for the average consumer.

Special features

Apart from its pleasantly low noise level, the Toshiba Canvio Ready Hard Disk offers no other special features.

Appearance

The case of the Toshiba hard drive is black with a rubber - dot pattern on the top and bottom and has a classic shape with rounded corners. A black Toshiba lettering on the top refers to its manufacturer.

Speed

The read and write speeds of 120 MB/s and 119 MB/s are moderate. Therefore, the hard disk is mainly suitable for archiving. Data access can be slow, making work more difficult.

Other

In addition to a USB 3.0 port, the Toshiba Canvio Ready Hard Disk also features ramp load technology, which switches off the power supply in the event of excessive vibration and thus protects the existing data.

We have evaluated about 200 customer reviews on the Internet. In summary, it can be said that about 90 percent of buyers are satisfied (4 stars) or even very satisfied (5 stars). Partially (2 stars) or completely dissatisfied are about 10 percent of the users. The average score at the time of the evaluation was 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Summary: 90% positive and 10% negative ratings

Yes it is possible to connect the device to the mobile phone. However, the hard drive then requires a separate power source. Movies can be saved, but playback may not be smooth because the hard drive is more suitable for archiving data.
