HGST mobile external hard drives
HGST, a Western Digital company, has launched a new line of Touro S mobile external hard drives. The 7,200 RPM hard drives move files up to 23 percent faster than standard 5,400 RPM based drives.
Featuring an aluminum enclosure and USB 3.0, the Touro S drive family delivers two levels of data protection—local backup and cloud storage. It comes with Touro S local backup software which automatically backs up photos, music, videos and documents from a computer directly to the drive.
The Touro S family offers 3 GB of Touro Cloud Backup for free. For more cloud storage, users can upgrade to 250 GB for $59 per year.
The drives are available in capacities of 1 TB and 500 GB priced at ` 6,000 and ` 5,000 respectively. They carry a 3-year limited warranty.
