The FireWire RAIDs features two 7,200 RPM mechanisms in a single enclosure.

The RAIDs will be available Oct. 18 in the following capacities: 120 GB for $499.95; 160 GB for $599.95; and 240 GB for $699.95.

The FireWire ports can be daisy chained, and the drive is bootable for Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X. All models are bundled with MediaFour's MacDrive 5 software, which allows Super DesktopGB to mount on Windows computers when the drive is formatted as a Mac volume. An AC adapter is also included.
