The high-performance Echo SE is an ultra-portable drive that easily plugs into a computer's USB port to perform automatic backup and transfer of files, at read speeds up to 28MB/s and write speeds up to 10MB/s. Echo ZE, with its low-profile 20.1 by 15.1 millimeter size and plug-and-stay design, is an always-ready drive providing a convenient means to automatically back up essential files – anytime, anywhere. Both drives are interoperable between Windows® XP, Windows Vista®, and Windows 7, as well as Mac OS® X operating systems, allowing data to be seamlessly accessible whether using PC or Mac® computers.
