The mobile storage market is quite competitive even with raising disk prices from the Thailand flooding. Because of this, Hitachi has taken steps to differentiate themselves from most competitors. We've seen several stylish USB 3.0 drives on the market, but we've yet to see one that includes cloud based storage. Hitachi's included 3GB storage can be increased to 250GB by opting into the paid service. Both the free and paid services can be accessed from any IP based device, like your desktop, notebook, tablet or smart phone. This service obviously goes well beyond just mobile storage and moves into the realm of everywhere storage.
Hitachi's Touro Mobile Pro has a single USB 3.0 miniport that can connect to your USB 3.0 or USB 2.0 port. The drive ships with the cable so you don't have to worry about sourcing one elsewhere. Inside the unit we found a 7,200 RPM Hitachi SATA drive. Two options are available; either 500GB or 750GB. We are testing the larger of the two, the 750GB today.
