WiebeTech Launches Storage DevicesFireWire 800 Pocket Drive adds to portable lineup
The MicroGB800 is WiebeTech's new FireWire 800-based Pocket Drive. The new model is a modified version of the MicroGB+ line of portable drives and offers dual FireWire 800 ports and a single USB 2.0 port. The device measures 5" x 3" x 0.6" and weighs less than 6 ounces with drive. An AC adapter is included, though the drive can also be powered through the FireWire bus. Models include:
- 20 GB, 5,400 RPM, $259.95;
- 40 GB, 5,400 RPM, $329.95;
- 60 GB, 5,400 RPM, $459.95;
- 60 GB, 7,200 RPM, $529.95;
- 80 GB, 4,200 RPM, $489.95.
All of the new MicroGB800 models are expected to be available July 22.
WiebeTech has also introduced a new serial ATA dock called the SATADock, along with a serial ATA PCI host card. The SATADock is designed to allow users to transfer data from IDE drives to Apple's upcoming G5 machines. (The host card provides Windows compatibility for internal and external serial ATA drives.) The dock supports ATA-5 and ATA-6 and converts standard IDE drives into serial ATA devices, providing higher raw data transfer rates with plug and play operation on Apple G5 computers. The dock will be available later this month for $119.95 ($139.95 with power supply). The serial ATA PCI host card is available now for $39.95.
The company has also launched new encrypted storage and write-blocked storage devices. Details are available on WiebeTech's Web site. For more information, visit http://www.wiebetech.com.
