[CES 2011] Samsung has just released three new types of USB 3.0 external hard drives in CES 2011 with two of those series are made for portable market and the other one is for desktop usage.
All of those USB 3.0 external hard drives are featuring superspeed 5Gbps transfer rate, which let you transfer faster than USB 2.0 interface. For example, you can use these Samsung USB 3.0 hard drives to transfer 25GB HD Movie in just 4 minutes, instead of 13 minutes with USB 2.0 480Mbps interface.
The above image is the 1 of 3 new lines of Samsung external hard drives. It’s a portable type that is pretty similar with standard portable drive, but it’s USB 3.0 interface and it has been pre-loaded with backup and security software for secure encryption. This series will be available in three different color tastes such as Onyx Black, Sapphire Blue and Coral Pink. It also has a nice pattern to show their own uniqueness.
Pictured above is the 2 of 3 Samsung portable hard drives. This series is a bit different from the first one, especially the wavy matte finish on the exterior design. It looks quite unique and you can easily distinguish this series with the other series in Samsung product line. Also, this portable drives will be available in size up to 1TB that other series are missing, and are also available in four colors choices like Brown black, Noble beige, Clay orange, and Mist gray.
The last one of the new hard drive line is a desktop hard drive. IT looks pretty classic with a fabric-patterned enclosure, and it’s way bigger than those two just now because it’s using 3.5-inch HDD instead of 2.5-inch laptop HDD. However, you can only find capacity bigger than 1TB in this option because this Samsung desktop hard drive will be available starting from 1TB, 1.5TB and 2TB. There are only two color choices for this version, which has been shown at the picture above: Brown Black and Noble Beige.
These newcomers will be hitting the US market starting April 2011. Pricing will be revealed when the time has come.
