Everything USB reviews the SimpleTech Pininfarina 500GB External Hard Drive.
Quote from the designer HDD drive review:
"Have you ever noticed how boring the external hard drive market is compared to some of the finer computer cases on the market? With perhaps one or two exceptions, everything currently on shelves is either squared off, constructed of dull matte plastic, or glows so freakishly bright it may as well substitute for a lighthouse. Today, we bring you an in-depth review of another exception to this travesty, the SimpleTech SimpleDrive External Hard Drive. While the name may fall flat, read on to see just how this Ferrari-inspired designer hard drive soars."
