Minimalist design lives on contrasts in material and surface. A matte silver bodyfinish combines with glossy black bezels. Enclosures are based on durable, passive-cooling aluminium-extrusion profile. Mechanical design is optimized for assembly, service and recycling. The series includes four enclosure versions to supply a wide range of different requirements: capacity (40GB up to 1000GB), connectivity (USB, FireWire, eSATA, LAN, WLAN) and data protection (hardware button for synchronization and encryption).
Special feature: A blue LED light shows the drive’s capacity on the front bezel.
