The Freecom Hard Drive XS is available with a one-terabyte (1TB), 1.5TB or 2TB capacity.
The rubber enclosure on the Freecom Hard Drive XS not only provides it with an attractive and tactile finish but also absorbs a large amount of the noise produced by the drive itself. The design also means it feels more portable than most desktop drives.
The Freecom Hard Drive XS's transfer speeds are above average and even when working with large Photoshop or video files it always stayed fast and responsive. There is no bundled backup software. If you want to use Time Machine with an Apple Mac it will need reformatting in Disk Utility.
