Don't Miss: This How to find Fingerlings in Stock

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."

Pros:
- Design by Pininfarina screams elegance
- Built-in capacity meter
- Cross-platform backup software by ArcSoft
- Includes CD/DVD burning utilities for Windows

Cons:
- Relatively low write speed
- No FireWire or eSATA interfaces available yet

Verdict:
While the SimpleDrive's speeds aren't anything extraordinary, Pininfarina's suave-yet-functional design and ArcSoft's cross-platform backup software will make this one stand out to buyers with a keen taste in aesthetics, especially those in the Mac crowd.
