Paul Lilly

How do you look good while toting around 1TB of data? Ask Toshiba's new 1TB Canvio portable hard drive , which combines an easy-to-use backup solution with oodles of storage and shoves it all into a stylish casing.

"As the survey shows, home computers hold very personal and valuable assets, and yet the majority of people aren't doing enough to help protect that precious data," said Manuel Camarena, product manager for consumer storage at Toshiba Storage Device Division. "For consumers who know backup is important and want an easy path to peace of mind, the Canvio is a no-brainer. It simply acts like an insurance policy against the loss of crucial data and precious digital memories."

Toshiba says the 1TB Canvio can store up to 285,000 digital pics, 263,000 music files, or 820 digital movies, and do so in a frame smaller than a postcard weighing about six ounces. The Canvio product line also comes in 500GB, 640GB, and 750GB models, as well as five different color options, including Raven Black, Satin Silver, Liquid Blue, Rocket Red, and Komodo Green.

Pricing breaks down to $120 (500GB), $140 (640GB), $160 (750GB), and $200 (1TB).
