[Amazon.ca] [$77.99] Toshiba Canvio Slim 2TB Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0, Black

Needed something for storing photos that doesn't take up a lot of space, this fit the bill nicely and appears to be an all time low price.

Is there any reason to pick this over the WD and Seagate 2tb portable drives that are $74.99 each?

Didn't Toshiba sell off their brand to random companies so who knows what you're getting in here? Or did they keep the hard drive division?

Shucking. Probably not possible with WD model. may not be with toshiba either. IIRC WD are built with a usb controller while toshiba may still use sata

Responses say no shucking so go cheapest with longest warranty.

FYI, these can't be shucked, the USB controller is soldered directly on the logic board like the WD external 2.5" drives.
