Fabrik on Monday announced its SimpleTech [re]drive, a new 500GB external drive with USB 2.0 connection. It costs $159.99.
Fabrik has also paid attention to recycled content in the packaging, and has slimmed down the packaging to just the bare essentials to create as little waste as possible.
The drive uses “Turbo USB 2.0,” a new technology that promises to provide faster performance for USB 2.0 hard drives by storing information in currently unused frames of data. Fabrik will offer a Mac version of Turbo USB 2.0 drivers for download from its Web site soon.
The drive also comes packaged with Prosoft drive backup software for Mac OS X.
