Excellent foray into USB 3.0
I got this Toshiba Canvio to go along with my new laptop, which is the first computer I've owned that has a USB 3.0 port. It's very small, light, and and compact, which right away was a huge plus. It will pretty easily fit into a breast pocket. It comes with the required USB 3.0 cable, so you're good to go right out of the box. I did side by side testing, and I got about double the speed of my USB 2.0 drive. I imagine the Canvio is capable of going much faster, but it's limited by the speed of my laptop's internal drive from which the transfer took place. No matter, doing my backups in half the time is fantastic and my next step will be to get a USB 3.0 port for my core i7 desktop and see how the SATA drive transfer works to this beast. Highly recommended!
