New FireWire hard drives from Maxtor
Maxtor today announced two new external hard drive solutions for connection to IEEE1394 aka FireWire. The core of this solution is Maxtor's DiamondMax, which is used here in a 40GB and 80GB solution.
Thanks to the Firewire interface, which is 30 times as fast as USB with a transfer rate of up to 400MB per second, good transfer rates should also be guaranteed for the hard disk. The dimensions of the Maxtor 1394 External Storage are 4 x 14 x 22 cm. Availability should be ensured at the beginning of October, whereby you have to put 279.95 US dollars on the table for the 40GB solution and 399.90 US dollars for the 80GB version.
