Look and Feel
Drawing inspiration from the beauty of the natural world, the Ultra Touch HDD boasts a sleek design and gentle hues. With two natural color choices, cloud white and pebble grey, this device effortlessly infuses a touch of nature into your workspace. The one we’ve got on hand is the pebble grey version, with small specks completing the whole recycled feel of the product.
Additionally, its lightweight design ensures easy portability, allowing you to take it with you to work, school, or while traveling. The HDDs also come with a complimentary 6-Month Mylio Photos subscription and 6-Month Dropbox Backup Plan on top of the three-year of limited warranty and Rescue Data Recovery Services that will help user defend against any potential data loss.
Pro-tip: Large capacity external hard disks like these are meant for cold data storage, if you’re looking for a carry around storage solution, an SSD or thumbdrive with no moving mechanical parts might be a better option!
