Silicon Power debuts the Stream S06 external hard drive line

The popular maker of memory solutions Silicon Power has announced the Stream S06 external hard drive line, which is an entirely new disk line in the company’s portfolio. The new external hard drive line offers support for the latest and fastest USB 3.0 standard and features the common 3.5-inch form factor as well as other features that may make it your best friend.

Perhaps the most striking feature of the new line is capacity. The Stream S06 offers capacities of 2 TB, 3 TB and 4 TB, which means you will be able to store your files no matter how large they are on these external hard drives. In the case of the 4 TB model this means that you will be able to store 1 952 000 high resolution digital pictures, 976 000 songs or 1760 hours of Full HD video. This is made easy thanks to the integrated USB 3.0 standard that allows for transfer rates that reach 5 Gbps (read/write), which is 10 times the speed of USB 2.0. This means that the Stream S06 is suitable for all kinds of needs, including videos, graphics editing, gaming and large files backup and execution.

Apart from the large capacity the Stream S06 offers a rather interesting chassis that features a handle for easier grabbing and carrying. The handle also adds contemporary beauty in the construction, which makes the Stream S06 a work of art. In addition to that the chassis comes with a case that can be put upright or flat as well as ventilation holes for better cooling. A LED indicator also provides users with an easier way in which they can see if the drive is transferring data. A power saving sleep mode keeps your electricity bill low too. Finally you get the free SP Widget software that provides 7 major back-up and security functions.

The Silicon Power Stream S06 measures 199 x 117.7 x 36.3 mm and weighs 770-876 grams depending on capacity. The external hard drive comes in a black chassis and supports all modern operating systems starting with Windows XP and newer, Linux 2.6.31 or later as well as Mac OS 10.5 and later.

Pricing is unknown as of now.
