Toshiba Canvio Gaming 4TB Portable HDD Review

Storage/HDD by stefan @ 2021-10-01

The Canvio Gaming 4TB offers good performance for an external 2.5’’ 5400RPM drive and is silent during operation as well. The amount of storage should be plenty for a big game collection and while not getting the same access times as on an SSD model, the product can sustain high speed transfer rates for longer versus cheap-QLC based solutions.
