Hitachi's LifeStudio External Hard Drive Family Goes Stylish

It seems that the whole world is trying out new external HDD designs. We know that's not true at all, but being in this business, it sure feels like it. Western Digital has their My Book line, and even Seagate has recently produced some rather striking external designs. Now, it's Hitachi's turn. They're attempting to "redefine external storage" with their new LifeStudio Drive family, which are said to make it easier to organize, protect and relive life's greatest moments.

Sort of touching, don't you think? Aside from looking fairly awesome, it's the first drive in the industry that automatically pulls together and organizes your photos, videos, music and documents from your computer, any connected USB device or your social media outlets. There's also a unique "3D Navigation" feature that provides a new way of looking at thumbnails and should make it easier to find things. One interface also provides local and online cloud backup options, and while we generally wouldn't expect to find this kind of functionality on a hard drive, this unit will also let users search, filter, watch or subscribe to millions of titles from online content providers with the LifeStudio app.

The new family of drives all use USB 2.0, and they support both Mac and PC platforms. The LifeStudio Mobile is priced starting at $79.99 for a 250GB version, while the Mobile Plus is available from $119.99 in 320GB and 500GB versions. The LifeStudio Desk starts at $99.99 for a 500GB, and the Desk Plus comes in 1TB/2TB starting at $149.99.
