[CeBIT 2008] - Transcend Takes Hard Drives Outside
Transcend’s new drives fear neither extreme conditions nor careless handling.
The external hard drives of the StorJet 25 mobile series are practically immune to shock and vibration and comply with the US MIL-STD-810F norm. In addition to being certified by the US military, transcend can also boast dust and water resistance according to the IP54 norm. Thus, the drives are well-equipped to handle Siberian sub-zero temperatures, Greek summers or even a sandy stay in the Sahara. Transcend claims that the drives will will remain operational and unaffected even by temperatures ranging from minus 40 to plus 70° C and high humidity.
These robust storage solutions use the USB 2.0 interface to exchange data with the host computer and offer up to 320 GB of storage capacity. The devices measure 134 mm x 80.8 mm x 18.8 mm and weigh 206 grams. An external power supply is not required, as the USB connection provides enough power.
The StoreJet 25 mobile drives ship with the StoreJet elite backup suite, which can not only perform backup tasks but also lets you synchronise your data.
The recommended retail prices for the StoreJet drives is €110 for the 160 GB model and €160 for the 250 GB version. Both are available in stores now and can be inspected at Transcends stand.
