The Seagate Seven is a celebration of company’s 35 years in the industry
Seagate earlier today announced what it says is the slimmest portable drive the world has ever seen. The Seagate Seven — called thus because of its 7mm depth — is as minimalistic as it is slim. Its unembellished steel enclosure, according the storage vendor, gives it a premium feel and “highlights the essence of a bare hard drive, Seagate’s core competency for over 35 years.”
The new Clickfree C2 Rugged Back-up Drive is "built to strict U.S. military standards," though that doesn't mean you should lug this on the battlefied and use it to repel bullets. What you can do is accidentally (or purposely, if you're the curious type) drop the drive from up to four feet, plug it into your PC, and watch it come to life as if nothing happened.
Verbatim has announced the launch of its maiden USB 3.0-equipped portable hard drive. The Store 'n' Go SuperSpeed USB 3.0 compact portable hard drive will be available in 500GB and 750GB capacities in October, with a 1TB variant to follow in November. If your world is rife with USB 2.0 ports like everyone else's, the drive's compatibility with the ubiquitous interface will ensure that you don't feel out of place. We are still waiting for Verbatim to spill out the price of the portable hard drive, but we do know that it will be covered under a 7-year warranty.
"We're excited to introduce the Store 'n' Go, the first portable hard drive in Verbatim's USB 3.0 collection, and allow consumers to experience a significant improvement in data transfer speeds that will let them complete their tasks in a fraction of the time," said Charles Klinker, Verbatim's Director of Marketing, HDD Products. "With the Store 'n' Go, users can seamlessly enter into the new generation of USB 3.0 and safely and reliably share, store and back-up their data anytime, anywhere."
