"New design" aka a slightly different looking box that a seagate or WD drive pops into, that is in no way, shape or form any different from the thousands of others that already exist.

I’ll admit that they look great, but those prices are nuts.

If we consumers were more logical, prices for most goods would likely be at least 30% lower.

Truth is, most of us are foolish with our money, hence companies like this feel secure in pricing items like this so high.

We’ll gladly overpay for a bargain bin hard drive because it looks cool or cereal because it comes in a colourful box.
You have just described the bulk of the drivers of inflation right now. If the masses would decide that the money was worth more than new toys, prices would come down. Sellers want the revenue more than buyers should want the offerings. However, buyers seem to have forgotten the mighty power of “No” and instead just pay (more), which is directly rewarding the many moves to raise prices.

So kinda like the unique design of an iPhone verses other smartphones (a rectangular slab with rounded corners and a charging/data port on the bottom).

I have a LaCie 5TB "ruggedized" portable drive - the one with the orange rubber on the case.
I use it exclusively for backups of my laptop - Time Machine and an emergency disk image.

So there's ONE reason these kinds of drives still exist. (No, I don't trust "the cloud", and my data is too sensitive and big, anyways.) If this doesn't have the ruggedization aspects of my existing drive (which bounces around in my backpack all day), this is useless to me.

By the way, there has been NO advancement of 2.5 inch spinning hard drives in the past 10 years or so - they're stuck at 5TB max!
