CES 2015 -Seagate has managed to fit 500GB into an amazingly slim external hard drive. The aptly-named Seven is only 7mm thick, and is intended for users on the go who require plenty of storage capacity. The Seven connects via the speedy USB 3.0 interface, and is manufactured from premium steel to withstand the rigors of portable use. Even with its rugged exterior the Seven manages to be aesthetically pleasing and feather light.

The Seven is thin even in comparison to a modern smartphone, and below we can see the size of one of the first 500GB HDDs. Storage has certainly came a long way, and with SSD manufacturers beginning to encroach upon the external storage market Seagate is upping their game to compete by offering the highest capacity available in external storage devices, and now also the thinnest.
