Storage peripheral maker
has taken the wraps off its Cobra+ FireWire 800 drive. It’s the company’s first offering to support the IEEE 1394b standard, or FireWire 800, as it’s known on Apple’s 17 inch PowerBook G4 and newest Power Mac G4.

The Cobra+ FireWire 800 also incorporates USB 2.0, the increasingly popular peripheral interface standard seen on PCs (Macs still remain with the slower USB 1.1 standard built in). What’s more, the drive is available in capacities up to 250GB. EZQuest says the new drive is both Mac and PC compatible.
Cobra+ drives ship in light gray cases shielded with 0.6mm metal. The drives ship with Intech Hard Disk Speed Tools software, which enables users to stripe multiple drives together in a RAID Level 0 configuration. Also included is a data cable and an auto-switching power supply. The Cobra+ FireWire 800 is stackable, according to EZQuest.
Other Cobra+ drives remain available with the FireWire 400 (IEEE 1394a) interface, in 40, 60, 80, 100 and 120GB capacities.
