Samsung S-series drives

Samsung on Monday announced it has added a 160GB variant of the S1 Mini external hard drive along with two new Pop colors. The new 1.8-inch S1 Mini, along with the existing 120GB S1 Mini and 500GB, 2.5-inch S2 Portable, are now also available in Sweet Pink and Ocean Blue. Other colors for the S1 Mini and S2 Portable include Piano Black, Snow White, Wine Red, and Chocolate Brown. The S1 Mini is about the size of a credit card, although much thicker. Both it and the S2 interface via a USB 2.0 connection.

All S1 Mini and S2 Portable drivers feature an automatic back-up scheduling feature, a built-in capacity gauge that shows how much space is left, how much is being used up and how much is being used for back-up storage. A sleep mode saves power by putting the drives in standby mode when it hasn't been used for five minutes. For security, there is 128-bit or 256- bit AES encryption along with password protection.

The Pop edition drives are shipping now in Korea and will be available in the company's other worldwide markets by the end of June, though no prices have been announced.
