has announced plans to use next week’s Macworld Conference & Expo to show off new bus-powered storage products that work with the Mac.
WiebeTech’s new products include the UltraGB, a 3.5 inch desktop FireWire storage peripheral that is bus-powered, works without a fan and sports a small footprint. WiebeTech compares the UltraGB to pocket drives, but unlike most pocket drives, the drive uses a 3.5 inch high-performance, full sized hard disk drive mechanism.
WiebeTech will also introduce the NanoGB, a storage drive that the company calls “wafer thin.” The drive features either a FireWire or USB 2 interface, and is less than 0.5 inches thick. Despite its diminutive size, the NanoGB sports capacities up to 50GB and transfer rates up to 35MB/sec.
Last but not least, the Super DriveDock is WiebeTech’s new, complete bus-powered FireWire bridge from 3.5 inch IDE hard drives. It enables users to attach a full sized IDE hard disk drive to a FireWire-equipped computer without needing to use a wall transformer, according to the manufacturer.
Expect to see more details about these new offerings next week during
Macworld Conference & Expo. WiebeTech will be exhibiting at booth 158.
