SmartDisk FireLite Wins Best of Show Award at Macworld Expo

Palm-Sized FireLite Has 5 GB Capacity (July 23, 2001)
SmartDisk Corporation today announced that its new FireLite 5 GB FireWire portable hard drive was voted "Best of Show" by exhibitors attending the Macworld Conference and Expo 2001. Using a 1.8" disk drive mechanism developed by Toshiba Corporation, FireLite fits in the palm of the hand and, with its 5 GB capacity and FireWire interface, is capable of handling a variety of digital music, digital video and digital pictures applications. In addition to these multimedia applications, FireLite can be used by both consumers and professionals for data backup.

"FireLite is one of a handful of products at the show to be chosen for this award," said Jim Dalrymple, News Director for Macworld Expo. "The device's capacity and extremely small profile make it like no other drive on the market."

FireLite is about the size of a pocket calculator, weighs only five ounces, and easily fits into a briefcase, purse, or shirt pocket. Because the drive is FireWire bus-powered, no external power source is necessary, even when it's used with a notebook. FireLite also features hot-plug/unplug support, eliminating the need to shut down or restart the computer when adding or removing drives.
