Samsung updates STORY drives with eSATA port

Samsung has announced it will soon replace the existing STORY Station range with a a new STORY Station Plus external hard drive line, add a new 2TB model and update the entire range with the inclusion of an eSATA interface. Compared to the original STORY drives which only have a USB 2.0 connection, the new 3.5-inch STORY Station Plus drives have the ability to transfer data at a 3-gigabit per second speed, or about six times faster than the outgoing models. A USB 2.0 port remains for wider compatibility.

Samsung also took the time to reduce the power consumption of the drives, now rated at 0.1W instead of the 2.5W draw when in standby.

The Plus model is also available in 1TB and 1.5TB capacites and all of them sport an aluminum case that doubles as a heat sink, and ship with Samsung Auto Backup software, a SecretZone program for data encryption and SafetyKey password protection.

Due for a late November release, the updated STORY Station Plus in a 2TB capacity will cost $299.

    Nice drives

    I have one of the current (non "plus") 1.5TB drives which I picked up for under $120 from New Egg. Makes a great and very quiet Time Machine volume. Much higher quality construction than most budget external drives, and have had no speed problems with the USB connection. Highly recommended.
