S2 Portable External Hard Disk Drive
About: Compact on the outside. Massive on the inside. Smaller and lighter than almost any external hard drive on the market, the S2 is the ideal storage solution for those who need to carry massive amounts of digital content when they’re on the go. With it’s desktop sized capacity, this pocket sized wonder is powerful enough to store up to 640 GB of information. The unique inclusion of a USB on-board controller reduces the drive’s weight and power consumption making it as efficient as it is compact.
I’m not a tech wizard. At all. And I wasn’t even really sure what a portable hard disk drive was for or why I would need one. So I did what I always do when it comes to tech devices and I asked one of my teenagers who informed me that we definitely need one of these to store “everything.”
The S2 is available with 160, 250, 320, 500 and 640 GB. Those numbers didn’t mean a whole lot to me, so I asked my kid if it would be enough to store things like his pictures, artwork and music. He laughed at me. ;) And then he explained that his old laptop only has a 120GB hard drive. So, yes, this small hard drive (less than an inch thick, a little over 3″ wide by 4″ long) has an amazing amount of storage space.
The S2 is available in fun colors to suit your style: Piano Black, Snow White, Wine Red, Chocolate Brown, Sweet Pink and Ocean Blue. It comes preloaded with the software you’ll need and includes a protective storage pouch and USB Cable.
As I expected from Samsung, the S2 is very user friendly – just connect it to your computer with the USB cable and follow the easy prompts from the Quick Start Guide to get up and running. It was easy! I saved the manual (without reading it) just in case I need it later, but this is one of those products that just makes sense when you plug it in.
There are 2 ways to protect your data on the hard drive: SafetyKey and SecretZone. Both are password protected and SecretZone encrypts your data for an extra measure of security.
As we become more and more reliant on our computers, the thought of losing it all (financial records, photos, documents, videos….) is pretty scary. The Samsung S2 is a convenient way to backup the things that are important to you!
