Many external hard drives are small enough that you can cram them in a back pocket for taking with you on the go. The Seagate Seven, however, takes portability up a notch, coming in at mind-bogglingly slim dimensions that will hardly fill up all the space available in that slot at the back of your jeans.
Measuring 7mm thin and weighing 90 grams, it’s barely thicker and heavier than most smartphones, making it just as convenient to haul around, so you can bring all your content wherever you go. Seagate claims it’s the thinnest half-terabyte portable drive you’re going to find in the market, so if traveling light is a priority, you really can’t possibly do any better.
The Seagate Seven houses a 500-gigabyte 5mm HDD inside a 7mm continuous enclosure, which boasts an industrial design on par with Lacie’s current crop of designer storage modules. Cut in 100 percent stainless steel, the enclosure is produced using a deep draw manufacturing process that guarantees both an impeccably-slim body and a build that’s tough enough to protect your data from everyday hazards. And, no, a hard disk destroyer machine is not an everyday hazard.
Armed with USB 3.0 for high-speed transfers, the drive includes a braided USB cable to match the durable enclosure. It also comes with Seagate’s Dashboard software preloaded, so you can quickly configure digital protection and backup settings for all your content.
Along with the premium design and state-of-the-art 5mm HDD, the Seagate Seven comes in at an equally attractive price of $99.99. It’s available now.
