Freecom Launches Mg External HDD with USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt Interfaces

Freecom launched the Mg line of external hard drives with Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 interfaces. While either interfaces are fast enough for the roughly 100 MB/s hard drive with 1 TB capacity, the point behind the design is probably to cater to both 2011-'12 Macs/MacBooks with Thunderbolt minus USB 3.0, and the more recent Macs with it. The drives come pre-formatted with the HFS+ file-system. The drive bagged this year's Red Dot design award thanks to its classy magnesium alloy chassis. Measuring 129 x 81 x 15 mm (WxDxH), the drives weigh about 175 g.

Freecom Intros 3 TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive for TVs and DVRs

Freecom, part of the Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Group and award-winning manufacturer of external hard drives and portable storage devices, today unveiled the Hard Drive Sq, a 3.5” external hard drive with an innovative square form factor. With its unique appearance and state-of-the-art technology, the Hard Drive Sq strikes a perfect balance between elegant design and practicality. In addition to being able to back up and store files on a computer, the drive connects directly to a TV set for USB recording and playback, enabling users to store and watch their favourite shows quickly and easily.

“With the Hard Drive Sq, you can really put the information you need at your fingertips – whether it is on your PC, laptop of even a TV screen,” said Cas de Heus, marketing and communications manager EUMEA at Freecom. “From a practical point of view, the Hard Drive Sq is everything you would expect from a high-quality external hard drive in that it is fast, easy to use and visually stunning – but the ability to plug it into a TV set gives it an additional edge. People are changing the way that they watch television and with so much great content to choose from, many are opting to record and playback the programmes that they would most like to watch. The Hard Drive Sq enables users to make the most of this by reliably expanding their TV’s storage capacity.”
