Samsung preps Wacko Jacko movie hard drive

Film pre-loaded on HDD

5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Wacko Jacko fans, Samsung has the external hard drive for you.

In just two weeks' time, the South Korean giant will release a 500GB 2.5in drive - the S2 Portable - pre-loaded with the Jackson film This is it. Gold coloured, the drive's top is styled with the star's sillhouette.

Samsung's Jacko Drive: yes, this is it

The drive, which will go on sale across Europe, is being released alongside the movie's appearance on all the more usual formats.

Samsung described the drive as a special edition product, but you may not need to snap it up quickly to avoid missing out. Last summer, Samsung released a Terminator Salvation-themed 500GB S2, and you can still pick these up.

The manufacturer didn't say how much the Jackson S2 will cost. The standard version will set you back between £65 and £70. ®
