They’re two drives in one.
QPS introduced its Que! D2 Dual drives, described as the first drives of their kind, at this week’s Macworld San Francisco. The new drives purportedly combine the capacity and of a hard disk with the convenience and reliability of cost-effective SuperDisk or MO (magnetic-optical) removable media.
“Que! D2 Dual drives are great for video, camcorder, digital camera and MP3 storage,” said Pierre Abboud, QPS vice president. “The combination of a hard drive and removable media is perfect for any application that involves large amounts of data.”
Each Que! D2 Dual drive has a built-in LS120/LS240 SuperDISK or 640MB MO drive. By connecting the drive with one FireWire cable, the user can quickly access both the hard disk and the removable media drive, Abboud said.
The Que! D2 Dual drive is compatible with both Macs and Intel systems and are priced at US$499 for a hard drive/LS120/LS240 combination, and at $599 for a hard drive/MO combination. The drives will begin shipping later this month.
