External HDDs

HD-LD Series

Back

The HD-LD is a small external hard drive for use with a personal computer and a television. In the case of a PC, the short side is positioned towards the front, so that the LED remains invisible during use and does not disturb the user; when used with a TV, the longer side is situated towards the front. Cables can be hidden in the attached cable cover, maintaining the overall iconic expression. A slit on the side increases the surface area of the case for better heat dissipation.
