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.
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!
