Samsung's Spiffy & Green G-Series External Hard Drives

External hard drives tend to be ugly looking devices, that are best swept aside or kept in some kind of hiding place. This isn't the case with Samsung's new G-Series external hard drives, which actually won an award for their design and the materials used in their manufacture.

Samsung's G-Series of external hard drives are so spiffy-looking that they won an iF award. Theses hard drives are available in sizes starting at 120GB up to 250GB.

The enclosures of these hard drives are made from environmentally-friendly halogen-free plastic. They come with embossed patterns on their surface which are photo-sensitive. This means that they will create different patterns depending on where the room's light-source is located. The pattern isn't just decorative, it's scratch- and fingerprint-resistant, and also serves as a heat sink, distributing the heat away.

We think that these external hard drives are a great idea and we hope that other manufacturers include some more green technology into their devices. Also it's nice to see some attractive looking enclosures for once!
