The storage device specialists at Western Digital have a new 120GB FireWire external hard drive available.
Designed with the company’s 7200RPM WD Caviar hard drive and a second-generation 1394 to IDE bridge card, it utilizes the industry-leading Oxford 911 chipset. In other words, for those who don’t care about techno-speak, it’s fast.
The FireWire drives can be stacked together and daisy-chained. Western Digital’s external hard drives are compatible with any computer with a built-in FireWire port, using Mac OS 8.6 or higher. For computers without FireWire ports, Western Digital offers a PCI Adapter for desktops and a CardBus PC Card for notebooks, which will add the FireWire interface to these legacy systems.
All Western Digital FireWire products carry a one-year warranty. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price for the 120GB FireWire Drive is US$349.
