If the form factor of a portable hard drive has been bothering you, then you might want to check out the Seagate Seven Portable Hard Drive (officially, called Sevenmm). Announced at the International CES 2105 in Las Vegas, the Seven stakes the claim as the slimmest 500GB portable hard drive the world, measuring an incredibly thin 7mm, hence the namesake ‘Seven’. The Seven is not merely the thinnest portable hard drive money can buy now, but the product itself represents the celebration of the latest advancements in storage innovation. The extreme thinnest is made possible by a deep draw process that allows all steel enclosure, and in this instance, 100 percent stainless steel, to be formed to the material’s thinnest possible state without compromising the structural integrity needed for an external portable hard drive.
Its 5mm hard drive is bus-powered, meaning it dispense with the need for additional power adapter and draws the required power directly from your Mac or Windows machine’s USB port. It is, naturally, USB 3.0-equipped, for speedy data transfer and comes standard with an equally beautiful 18-inch (45.72cm) braided nylon USB 3.0 cable. We simply dig the bare drive aesthetic, which we are pretty sure many geeks out there will concur with us and the best part is, it is not a bank-breaker. The Seagate Seven Portable Hard Drive can be yours for just a little under 100 bucks.
