August 19, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran
Samsung has announced its new external hard disk drive, the S2 Portable 3.0. The new 2.5-inch HDD comes as an update to the Samsung 640GB S2 portable USB hard drive which was launched earlier this year.
The new HDD comes equipped with an on-board SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface and a 7200RPM spindle speed, delivering faster performance over preceding versions. The USB 3.0 interface offers a maximum transfer rate of 5 gigabits per second. The 7200RPM rotation speed delivers high performance. Samsung has added the Dynamic Balancing technology for low vibration, and the SilentSeek and NoiseGuard technologies for providing a low noise performance. The S2 also features Samsung Auto Backup, SecretZone and SafetyKey for data encryption and password protection. The on-board USB technology reduces the size of the hard disk casing and delivers reduced power consumption.
The S2 will come in multiple color options and you can choose from capacities of 320 GB and 640 GB. There is no news on the price tag of the HDD which will start selling in Europe by the end of the month.
