Logitec Releases New 1.5 TB External Hard Drives

Japanese hardware manufacturer Logitec (≠ Logitech) released the new LHD-ED line of 1.5TB external hard drives, variants of which are segregated on the basis of connectivity options:
  • Model LHD-EDU2 provides just USB 2.0
  • Model LHD-EDFU2 provides USB 2.0 and FireWire
  • Model LHD-EDSAU2 provides USB 2.0 and eSATA
Connectivity aside, the variants are identical in measuring 42 × 225 × 132.5 mm, weighing 1.1 kg (around 2.42 lbs), and feature hard drives with spindle-speeds of 7,200 rpm. They are backed by a one-year company warranty, and will go on sale by the end of this month at prices ranging between US $282 and $304.

I wonder why the went with such a similar name to Logitech. Its either gonna confuse the crap out of people, or make them think they are buying a good, well established brand.

"Logitec" was a name already established in Japan before the Logitech came to be (estd. 1982), and Logitech operates under a different name there (Logicool).

It looks nice, but if the company is only willing to warranty it for a year it makes me uneasy about the quality of the product. IMO drives should have a 3-5 year warranty minimum. ;)
