Maxtor Corp. announced the Maxtor Personal Storage 3000LE, a 40GB external hard drive that connects to the computer via the USB 2.0 interface. Ideal for digital photos and video, MP3 songs, electronic games and other large files, the 3000LE with USB 2.0 also delivers up to 40 times faster performance than current generation USB 1.1 hard drives.

Priced at $199.95 and currently shipping to retail stores and, the 3000LE provides users with a convenient and speedy alternative to the complexity of installing internal hard disk drives. Operating at 5400RPM and providing 40GB of capacity, the 3000LE meets the demanding needs of today's computer users by storing up to:

  • 10,000 4-minute MP3 tunes

  • 40,000 high-resolution digital photos (JPEG compressed)

  • 40 hours of digital video (MPEG compressed)

  • 1,000 video games or any combination of files.

    The 3000LE's high speed USB 2.0 interface enables easy and instant connectivity with virtually all existing USB ports -- including backward compatibility with USB 1.1.

    To upgrade older PCs to USB 2.0 performance, Maxtor will be offering a USB 2.0 PCI adapter card ($49.95) featuring four external and one internal high speed ports.
