German storage specialist punts luxury external hard drives

Not at all blingy, thank goodness

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

If you're looking for an external hard drive that offers something more than the usual half-a-terabyte of storage in a grey plastic case, Germany's Brinell believes it has what you're after.

You see, the Understated and Elegant series of 1.8in Purestorage XS and 2.5in Purestorage 2 drives are wrapped in, respectively, Macassar wood and leather, each material set against chrome trim. If you fancy something more industrial, the Engineered series slots the same drive into a choice of carbon fibre or brushed steel cases.

The Engineered and Elegant drives all retail for €189 (£171/$277) including tax and shipping. The Understated drive costs €229 (£207/$336). All of them are available now, for Brinell's website. ®
