Bit Tech reports Freecom releases the Mobile Drive CLS, a new line storage solution that enables you to plugin up to three external 2.5" HDDs into a USB 2.0 storage dock. It's quite pricey though.
The labels - which are a rare sight for external drives these days, and hearken back to the days of floppy disks and hand-written notes frequently erased - form one-third of the drives' "Collect, Label & Store" moniker, and come in eight different colours for easy at-a-glance discrimination as to which drive contains work-safe material.
The design of the drives - which are a pocket-friendly 109.8 x 79.5 x 13.5 mm and enclosed in rubber for vibration dampening and sound proofing - is courtesy of Belgian designer Sylvain Willenz, and certainly goes some way to make the CLS series look like a pretty premium product.
And there's the rub: while the dock isn't too expensive at £14.99, each individual drive will cost you at least £64.99 - and that's just for the bottom-end 250GB model. The higher capacities - with 320GB, 500GB, 640GB, and 750GB also available - will cost increasing amounts, and when you consider that you really need at least three drives to make full use of the docking station the costs soon add up.
