Freecom mHDD Slim 1TB 2.5” USB 3.0 Mobile Hard Dive Review

The Freecom mHDD Slim 1TB HD a 2.5” portable hard drive that is encased in an attractive brushed aluminium. The entire unit doesn’t seem much larger than a 2.5-inch drive itself and it comes with 2 cables, a standard USB 3.0 cable and the newer USB Type-C cable. This is quite a nice addition, most companies just provide the one cable, though at the moment the Type-C cable doesn’t have much use for most PCs, apart from some newer laptops. Both the cables are quite short, this is handy if you are plugging it into a laptop you are...

Now packing all your favourite and latest Core i3, i5 and i7 processors with Core i3 offerings of 3.2GHz, i5 of 3.6GHz and the massive 27” iMac can house a super Quad-Core 2.93GHz Core i7. So speed is certainly upped. Memory wise they start with a decent enough 4GB of RAM which can be upgraded to 16GB. 500GB of HDD will be standard but one can now opt for the 256GB SSD or again if you’re looking at the behemoth 27”, it can hold up to 2TB of HDD. The SD card slot now supports SDXC cards which at the moment reach as far as 64GB so certainly there’s plenty of space to be found for all your media and docs. The other spec increase comes in the form of a ATI Radeon HD 5750 graphics card perfectly capable of delivering high quality HD graphics and media content on the now standard LED backlit screen.   Packing...
