Starting today, the MicroGB price has been reduced as much as US$160 depending on configuration. 20, 30, 40, and 48GB models are available, with prices ranging from $217.95 to $439.95 depending on capacity. (Prices had been from $259.95 to $599.95 before today.)
As with all USB 2.0-equipped devices, the MicroGB is downward compatible with the slower USB 1.1 interface available on all currently shipping Macs. It also uses the popular Oxford 911 bridge chipset for high-speed Firewire connectivity. FireWire and USB cables are included. FireWire bus-powered, the MicroGB also has available an optional 12V DC adapter (required for USB use).
WiebeTech also sells a bare enclosure, if you’re interested in installing your own drive. That unit’s price remains unchanged at $159.95.
