by Sequoia Studio. The Octave is an artistically beautiful hard drive that incorporates a simple shape and airy architecture – digital information encapsulated in elegance. It features a thin black anodized aluminum grid to increase ventilation. The polished perforated aluminum plate keeps this high-capacity drive silent and cool. A lacquered white coat, slip resistant rubber pads and a power button round out the specs. A blue LED indicates read/write status and a white LED indicates the Octave is running. For those who require two Octave hard disks, they can be assembled vertically, with a base designed specially for this purpose.
