WiebeTech LLC on Tuesday introduced the
DuoGB800, a new external hard disk enclosure that mounts two drive mechanisms inside a single enclosure. Unlike the original DuoGB, which supported FireWire 400 only, this model is equipped with dual FireWire 800 (downwardly compatible with FireWire 400) and USB 2.0 interfaces. WiebeTech offers a do-it-yourself model without any drives for US$179.95 or pre-configured 240GB – 500GB versions ranging from $329.95 to $619.95 depending on capacity. WiebeTech will begin shipping the new drive on May 27, 2004.
