Toshiba fuels the USB 3.0 market
“USB 3.0 will become a standard feature in the computing market of the future. As users are increasingly storing large files such as videos, music tracks and photos, they demand a fast data connection between the backup medium and the computer. USB 3.0 offers data rates of up to 5 Gigabit per second. Compatibility to the widespread USB 2.0 ensures that computers supporting only USB 2.0 can also be used with STOR.E ART 4.

Designed to give storage a personal touch
Available in a selection of five models with red, green, blue, white and silver coloured graphical accents on a high gloss black finish STOR.E ART4 gives customers the choice to express their personal style. It provides a capacity of up to 1TB and comes with a protective pouch to secure your device safely and protect it while you are on the go.

High level of security for sensitive data
The STOR.E ART4 also comes with full version NTI© BackupNow EZ software which provides an intuitive user interface for ease of use. Besides automatic backup routines it offers even a full system backup for disaster recovery as well as data encryption for maximum security. The built-in shock sensor is an additional smart feature which suspends write function in case of an accidental drop or shock, and helps to avoid physical damage to the drive.

The small dimensions and light weight of less than 190g, rubberised edges and power supply via the USB connection, STOR.E ART4 is ideal for mobile usage and makes it suitable for stationary usage, making a very smart desk too.
