The Perfect Storage Partners for those On-the-Go

South Africa, 23 November 2010 – LG Electronics, a global leader and technology innovator in Business Solutions, introduces the LG XD5 and XG1 External Hard Drive devices. They are perfect for adding extra data storage capacity as well as act as an on-the-go systems back up solution.  

“In today’s digital environment, PC users are downloading and sharing vast volumes of data from the web and via peer-to-peer platforms. The adoption of the USB devices to store their information on-the-go have proven to be very useful, however the storage capacity of such devices are often limited. LG’s XD5 and XG1 HDD’s are the most suitable mobile accessory for those on the move to solve storage dilemmas”, says Michele Potgieter, Director Marketing and Corporate Communications from LG Electronics.

With storage capacity of 320 and 500 GB, the XD5 sports two USB 2.0 ports for easy pug-and-play functionality and accommodates a fast data transfer rate of up to 480 Mbps, improving time efficiency in the fast paced modern society. The device is USB powered, which eliminates the need to find an alternative power point to ensure its operation and it further adds to the ease of use of the hard disk drive.

Featuring innovative LED side-bars that light up when the device is in use, it not only makes the device’s state of use easy to determine with a simple glance but also adds that element of style wherever they go style and colour is an important aspect of its design.

In addition, for a diminutive hard disk drive packing more of a punch, the LG 3.5” XG1 hard disk drive might be just the thing. It is a monster of a hard disk drive in a small package with dimensions of only 137.0 mm (L) x 188.0 mm (W) x 44 mm (D). Despite the XG1’s deceptive physical size this gadget is available with 1Tb or 2TB storage capacity, providing ample storage space for all your multimedia content and additional data requirements.

The XG1 is also USB powered, making it ideal for the mobile worker or socialite that is constantly on-the-go. It is available in either black or white and sports backup software to help keep your PC files safe and secure, just in case something unforeseen happens to your PC.

Both of these external hard disk drives support both Windows and Apple machines.
The XD5 500 GB and XG1 1 TB HDD’s are available at all reliable retailers with recommend retail prices of R849.99 and R1, 099 respectively.
