SimpleTech Duo Pro Drive by Fabrik
With the SimpleTech® Duo Pro Drive, users receive massive performance, capacity and data protection on multiple levels. As a dual-drive solution, you can choose RAID 0 for super-fast performance or RAID 1 for added data protection. RAID 0 divides a data stream and writes pieces of it to both drives at once, a process called striping. Using RAID 0 with eSATA 3Gb/s, the Duo Pro Drive is one of the fastest external drives in its class, offering significantly faster write and read times for speed-hungry applications like audio/video streaming, imaging and game loading. RAID 1, also called mirroring, simply takes everything that is written to the primary hard drive and creates a copy of it on the second drive. That way, if the first drive fails, the second one swings into action so the user does not experience data loss or downtime. The new Duo Pro Drive comes loaded with a high-speed USB 2.0 and eSATA 3Gb/s interface for super-fast data transfers. Suggested retail pricing is $399.99 for 1TB, $599.99 for 1.5TB and $799.99 for 2TB.
