Seagate Launches World's First USB-Powered Desktop Hard Drive with Innov8

Seagate Technology plc, a world leader in storage solutions, today announced the launch of Seagate Innov8, the world's first USB-powered desktop hard drive. Seagate Innov8 features innovation from the inside out with its industry-leading 8 TB capacity, trend-setting Ignition Boost Technology and expressive design.

There is still an abundance of consumer electronics that require an external power supply, placing a premium on power outlets. With advancements in USB 3.1 technology, major manufacturers like Apple are beginning to rely on one connection-type for everything. Today, with the introduction of Seagate's new Ignition Boost Technology, Innov8 is the world's first 8 TB desktop hard drive that does not need to be plugged into a power outlet. Similar to a standard car requiring a battery kick to start the engine, Ignition Boost together with USB 3.1 enables Innov8 to thrive off bus power. No dedicated power source or adapter required.

What's more, Innov8 features industry-leading capacity with Seagate's 8 TB HDD. Now users simply plug in the reversible USB-C cable and have access to a lifetime of data - including more than two million songs, four million photos and eight hundred HD Movies.

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.

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.
