Fantom Drives has introduced the G-Force MegaDisk eSATA+USB external hard disk drive. As the name implies, it features both external Serial ATA (eSATA) and USB 2.0 interfaces. The drive is available starting at $319.95.
The G-Force MegaDisk comes in 1.0TB, 1.5TB and 2.0TB capacities, configured in multiple RAID options built in. Users can configure the drive in RAID 0 (disk striping) for maximum performance, RAID 1 (disk mirroring) for fault tolerance, as a JBOD (Just a Bunch of Disks) or spanned for simple large volume support.
The MegaDisk is housed in an aluminum enclosure designed to dissipate heat. The enclosure features a single eSATA port and a single USB 2.0 port. eSATA isn’t yet standard issue on the Mac; you’ll need a Mac Pro or Power Mac with an expansion card installed, for example, or a MacBook Pro with an eSATA Express/34 card installed.
System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.2 or later. It ships with USB and eSATA cables, power cord, user manual and backup software.
