MegaDisk 1.5TB RAID drive features FireWire 800

Fantom Drives and MicroNet Technology have introduced the new MegaDisk 1.5TB. As the name implies, the external hard disk drive storage system provides 1.5 terabytes (TB) of storage capacity, and costs $999.95. It’s compatible with Macs and PCs.

The MegaDrive 1.5 TB features FireWire 800, FireWire 400 and USB 2.0 external interfaces. It features two 750GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard disk drive mechanisms, and is encased in an aluminum chassis with a design that complements Apple’s Mac Pros, Power Macs, PowerBooks and MacBook Pro systems.

The drive uses native hardware-based RAID Level 0 (striping) capabilities build into the Oxford Semiconductor 924 chipset used within the system, and works with Mac OS X and Windows XP.

Fantom and MicroNet sells the G-Force MegaDisk in other capacities starting at 500GB from $269.95.
