ASUS and Lamborghini have collaborated to create an external HDD that, to be perfectly commending, resembles a Lamborghini vehicle.
ASUS is already known for making elite computers and computer peripherals (and semi-decent cell phones). A friend of mine has an ASUS gaming laptop that he is very pleased with, and can run Starcraft 2 in Ultra mode. Computer sites all examine ASUS peripherals closely and have a general idea that they’re going to get a quality product.
Similarly, Lamborghini makes luxury cars. Many a career goal has a Lamborghini involved. So when I first looked at this hard drive, I was a bit skeptical.
The hard drive itself is standard. It has 750GB of storage, which is somewhat mediocre given today’s 1TB standard. Also, it has USB 3.0 capabilities, which is a small plus. The only differentiation points are its design and the FlexSave software. I like to think users of computers know how to drag and drop, so the whole FlexSave thing seems like a bit of hogwash to me. Perhaps if it’s capable of auto-synchronization, I’d give it a few points.
The design is quite nice though. It definitely emits a Lamborghini vibe, given the bezel and shape. I’m a bit disappointed that it only comes in black and white colors. The classic Lamborghini would be a red one, which should definitely have been included. I’d have preferred a green and yellow one too, but the red is an essential. If ASUS took this route, perhaps the external HDD could become a collector’s item, which I think would be a legitimate strategy for it.
Alright, fine I sound a bit hard on it. I’ve been told that if I have nothing nice to say, that I shouldn’t say it at all! Well, I’d still say it’s a standard HDD and has a very fascinating design, but I think it has plenty of room for improvement. I think that its specs need to be stepped up a whole lot, especially with the “elite” Lamborghini image to keep up.
