WiebeTech has released a new line or desktop FireWire-based hard drive. The new line, called Super DesktopGB, offers capacities up to 120 GB and uses the FireWire port for power. It also includes a USB 2.0 connection.

The drives can also be used as boot volumes under Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X. The USB 2.0 capabilities of the drives are also backward-compatible with USB 1.1.
