Published: 12th September 2006 | Source: Seagate | Price: |Introduction
Seagate is a name familiar with all in the technology world for their vast range of storage systems. Today I will be looking at one of Seagate's newest creations, the Seagate 5GB Pocket Hard Drive. These "elegant, palm-sized drives can fit in your pocket, yet they safely store large business files, music, photos, videos and more. You can even password-protect your files".
These days the transfer of data from PC to PC or from home to work is becoming more and more important, the answer for some time now has always been discs or flash drives, but as the world progresses the storage limitations and fragility of these methods is more and more becoming a hindrance. Enter the Pocket Hard Drive
The packaging for the drive is fairly basic and clearly aimed towards shops and retail outlets with the device completely visible and plenty of details selling the capabilities of the drive.
Fortunately Seagate have not sacrificed protection in the name of aesthetics with this raised edge protecting the contents from falls from the shop shelf.
The inside of the packet contains a set of quick instructions and information on compatible operating systems, a utilities disc with optional software and a separate plastic pouch with the drive, a silicon crystal pouch and a security tag
Overall the packaging suits the product and its market nicely.
Lets take a look at the drive itself....
