Posted on Nov 3 2012 - 7:55pm by Richard Sharp

We’ve given away some epic gear in the past, some of it small and some of it big. On this occasion we have something physically small which is bigger on the outside (sorry it’s not a T.A.R.D.I.S).

Toshiba has supplied us with one of their ultra fast USB 3 external hard drives to giveaway.

Read on if you want a chance to win it.

This beautiful hard drive is tiny, measuringΒ 12 x 7.7 x 1.5 cm and weighing just 177g. The version we have has 500GB of space, comes bundled with BackItUp and Burn essentials and is capable of a blistering 5GBps transfer speed.

    Backup – it's always worth doing on an independent device like this even if you keep your files and media in the cloud.
