The Hitachi Touro Desk 3TB external hard drive has been created by Hitachi to provide a powerful and high-storage capacity drive with pleasant aesthetics. It is probably the biggest and fastest of Touro Desk Pro models. Hitachi has taken a totally different approach to make this utilitarian device attractive with smooth curving lines, glossy rear side and silver body. The two-toned color scheme adds to its looks, but it takes more room for its capacity because of its monolithic design.
The 7200-rpm drive produces more heat than its slower counterpart, and despite the two vents on its sides, it is a passively-cooled device. It does not have a power switch and needs to be turned off by plugging out. But, it powers down after a preset length of idle time. It provides two levels of protection namely, local backup and cloud backup, ensuring safety for your data, whether you store photos, documents, music or videos. Besides, you can access your files anytime from web browsers or smartphones, and also share them online by just sending web links. The fast USB 3.0 interface is a plus, and you can upgrade for higher cloud storage and mobile digital applications by opting for a paid subscription.
