Hawaiian-themed company TikiMac on Tuesday introduced its
series of external hard drives, which feature a pair of FireWire 800 ports and an Oxford Semiconductor 912 chipset, which the company said “offers up to a 25 percent speed boost over the original Mahana drive, as well as transparent compatibility with Macintoshes and Windows PCs.” The Mahana II comes with FireWire 400 and 800 cables and can be purchased in 500GB (US$399), 600GB ($599), 800GB ($799) and 1.2TB ($1,149) capacities.
The company also noted that its
external FireWire drives are now available in 300GB ($299.99) and 400GB ($419.99) capacities, in addition to the 160GB ($159.99) and 250GB ($219.99) versions, which have been reduced in price. They feature two USB 2.0 ports and one FireWire 400 port.
