HGST Touro S Mobile External Hard Drives Announced
HGST has announced it is expanding its line of external storage and backup solutions with a new family of Touro S mobile external hard drives, boasting 7,200 RPM and up to 23 percent faster than standard 5,400 RPM-based drives. The new Touro S line is available in metallic finishes including gold, silver, ruby and platinum and offers two levels of data protection – local backup and cloud storage – to help protect, transport, store and access photos, music, videos and documents wherever the user may be. HGST Touro S mobile external hard drives are also Mac and PC compatible.
In addition, the Touro S local backup software quickly and automatically backs up files from a computer directly to the drive every 30 minutes. Flexible settings give users the ability to customize their scheduled backups on a time or day that’s convenient for them.
Pricing and Availability
The 1TB Touro S drive has an MSRP of $99.95 while the 500GB Touro S drive retails for $79.95. Both models are backed by a two-year limited warranty and are available now.
