Beerman Posted September 28, 2008 Report Share Posted September 28, 2008 Fabrik is introducing two external hard drive solutions notable with enormous capacity—1.5TB for the Pro and 3GB for the Duo Pro, which combines two 1.5GB drives that can be used in either Speed (RAID 0) or Copy (RAID 1) configuration. Speed Mode (AKA striping) provides more rapid data transfer (up to a theoretical maximum of 3Gbps, compared with 480Mbps for USB 2.0). Copy Mode (mirroring) provides the security of keeping two identical copies of the data, one on each drive, though it effectively limits the data capacity to 1.5TB. Currently available in smaller capacities, these two solutions will be available within the next few months. Both solutions provide a quad interface, letting you connect to a computer via eSATA, USB 2.0, FireWire 400, or FireWire 800. (If your desktop computer does not have an eSATA port, Fabrik offers the SimpleTech ProSpeed eSATA PCI Adaptor Card for $69.99 list.) With either drive, you get 2GB of free online storage through Fabrik Ultimate Backup. The SimpleTech Pro Drive lists at $159.99 for a 500GB model, $209.99 for 750GB, and $259.99 for 1TB. The 1.5TB single-drive model (pricing not set yet) will be available later this year. The SimpleTech Duo Pro Drive lists at $279.99 for a 1TB version, $419.99 for 1.5TB, and $549.99 for 2TB. The 3TB model (pricing also not set) will be available by the end of the year. Extreme Tech Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
