Samsung Launches USB 3.0 External Drives

Samsung has launched three new lines of external hard drives with USB 3.0 connectivity including two portable models and a desktop drive.

Samsung’s premium portable line of hard drives have added backup and security software and can be encrypted and password-secured. They will be available in Onyx black, Sapphire blue, and Coral pink colors.

The new portable drives will be available in storage sizes up to 1TB and have a colourful wave-like matte finish and will be available in four colors: Brown black, Noble beige, Clay orange, and Mist gray.

The new Samsung USB 3.0 drives have data transfer rates of up to 5 gigabits per second, allowing you to transfer a 25GB HD movie in just 4 minutes, compared with 13 minutes with USB 2.0 devices.

All the new drives are expected to arrive in the US during April when prices will be made available.
