Samsung Launches Speedy S2 Portable Hard Drive
"As digital content continues to evolve from standard definition to HD and now 3D content, we expect the demand for high performance external HDDs to increase, especially among IT enthusiasts," Ho-Seong Lee, vice president, storage marketing, Semiconductor Business, Samsung Electronics. "The S2 Portable 3.0 delivers the benefits of top performance and quality, and as a result, lowers the power usage of the external hard drive also."
Good looks, high performance, and lower power consumption? That's a trio we won't argue with. The S2 is available in 320GB and 640GB capacities, both of which come preloaded with a software suite that includes Samsung's Auto Backup, SecretZone, and SafetyKey for data encryptiong and password protection.
Countries in the European Union will get the first look at the S2 Portable 3.0 sometime later this month. No word on when Samsung will ship these drives stateside, or for how much.
