We have in our labs a portable Hard Disk Drive (HDD) with a USB 3.0 interface and a capacity of 1TB. The Samsung M3 series is a result of the strategic alignment between Seagate and Samsung last year, when Seagate combined its hard disk drive (HDD) operations into Seagate. Seagate is also offering the S2 Portable external drives and the Spinpoint M8 internal laptop drives under the Samsung brand.
Besides the 1TB model, the M3 series also includes a 500GB version.
