Lamborghini Hard Drive Won’t Make Your Computer Run Faster

After Asus released some Lamborghini laptops, it’s time to make more money off the Lambo name by releasing some USB hard drives. While the enclosure looks nice enough, it’s by no means the fastest or biggest drive out there.

The USB Lambo hard drives come with 5400 RPM drives in the USB 2.0 flavor and 7500 RPM in USB 3.0. They are offered in 500GB and 750GB versions, which is a bit small for external drives these days, even for 2.5-inch drives. They’ll cost $140 and $190 (USD) respectively for the 5400 RPM USB 2.0 version. No pricing details for the USB 3.0 version.

They seem a bit overpriced, especially when a 2TB WD MyBook sells for $140 or a similar form factor WD My Passport SE for $113, which works with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0. I honestly wouldn’t buy an external hard drive without a fan these days anyhow. I had one fail on me (LaCieĀ  2.5-inch), and since then, I always buy an enclosure with a fan for a 3.5-inch Western Digital hard drive. Naturally, these drives need to be plugged in.
