Toshiba Canvio Slim 2TB External HDD Review

Storage/HDD by stefan @ 2022-03-25

The Canvio Slim 2TB is a stylish drive from Toshiba sporting a regular HDD, where you can keep data backup, move it around or use the drive as a storage expansion for a computer which does not have enough integrated. Its performance is in-line with other 2.5’’ 5400RPM drives we have tested before and remains silent while operating. The drive value is enhanced when used with the included backup and encryption software, which is useful when using the product in both home and business environments.
