Featuring some serious good looks and functionality boot, HP’s new SimpleSave External Drive incorporating Western Digital (WD) hardware, is now available from Drive Control Corporation (DCC), just in time for the Festive Season.
Available in the 2.5 inch SimpleSave Portable and 3.5 inch SimpleSave Desktop options, these external drives look good enough to display but still incorporate some great storage capacity. The SimpleSave Desktop is available in 320 and 500 Gigabyte (GB) capacities and the SimpleSave in 1 and 2 Terabyte capacities.
An important differentiator of the SimpleSave range is its partnership with WD. Comments Vassen Naicker, Western Digital product specialist at DCC: “By incorporating WD’s hardware technology, HP is offering products that are already backed by one of the world’s leading manufacturers of external hard drives. The combination of some serious hardware and advanced HP software make these drives a truly viable storage option.”
In order to ensure that the HP SimpleSave is provided by external drive experts, it will only be available to authorised WD distributors and will be offered at pricing that is on par with WD products as well as a two-year warrantee.”
Staying true to its name, the SimpleSave is really as simple as plugging the drive into a USB connection; once connected backup is automatic which is enabled by pre-installed backup software.
For example, the software automatically finds and backs up the data on the PC or notebook, and after the first backup, automatically updates the backup with file changes whenever the computer is idle.
The SimpleSave hard drives are designed with heat-dissipating cases that stay cool and run quietly without a fan. The SimpleSave Portable is powered by the PC’s USB 2.0 port and does not require an external power supply. In addition, the 2.5-inch portable model is designed with a shock-resistant case to protect the drive from the bumps and jolts of everyday usage.
