WiebeTech LLC on Wednesday introduced the bus-powered
in capacities up to 500GB. UltraGB+ is 3.5-inch storage enclosure that works with FireWire 800 (downwardly compatible with FireWire 400) and USB 2.0, though it’s only bus-powered on the FireWire 800 interface.
UltraGB+ features “FlexMount” shock-mounting for the drive, and includes an AC adapter for users who plan on running the mechanism off an unpowered interface.
The UltraGB+ is available in a 120GB model for US$349.95. The new 250GB and 500GB models cost $399.95 and $799.95 respectively.
