Priced at Rs.4,400-10,990

Hitachi on Tuesday unveiled its new range of external hard drives, promising perfect storage solutions for users. The LifeStudio family of hard drives offers storage capacity ranging from 250GB and 2TB (terabyte) and priced between Rs.4,400 and Rs.10,900. “With the new LifeStudio family, the company is breaking through the long-established confines of the category and is delivering an external drive that combines highly reliable storage and new levels of data protection with content organisation, management, socialisation and navigation for local and online content,” Hitachi Global Storage Technologies Vice-President (Asia Pacific) Robert Chu told journalists here.

The LifeStudio family, offered in portable and desktop models, creates an unprecedented solution that seamlessly pulls in, organises and protects consumers' stored digital content — photos, videos, music and documents — and unifies them with online digital content from social networks such as Facebook and photo sites such as Flickr and Picasa web albums. These important digital memories are laid out on a stunning 3D visual wall.

Designed for Mac and other personal computer users, the LifeStudio external drive family comes in mobile and desktop solutions. Each comes preloaded with the Hitachi LifeStudio content management app and Hitachi Backup software. Hitachi LifeStudio external drives would be available at large format retail stores and Hitachi GST distribution channels by the end of September, Mr. Chu added.
