Samsung S2 portable hard disk review
Man…. samsung have one of the priciest 2.5inch portable hard disk out there in the market. I picked up a samsung s2 500gb recently for RM 269 so here is a short review of it :
One of the striking feature of the hard disk is the appearance of the disk itself. the casing is so BEAUTIFUL, really… you will not want to scratch this baby at all!
So what do you get out of the box? a point to note : the white “box” holding the hard disk in place is actually a soft rubbery material and not paper box material! very nice touch samsung…..
Very nice of samsung to include the pouch. indeed, they do understand that customers would want to protect the shiny surface of this lovely designed hard disk casing! One thing to note is that if you DO carry your hard disk with the pouch, people will MISTAKE it for a blackberry as the size is and pouch is very similar!
The drive performed very well during transfer tests :
PRO : Fast and very beautiful colourful designed hard disk casing
Cons : Price (Street price of RM260 for a 500GB)
This is a great 2.5inch hard drive for people who not only want to have functionality but also a trendy and cool looking piece of hardware.
Thanks to samsung malaysia for providing me with a review unit.
