Seagate with new USB hard drives
Manufacturer Seagate now also offers USB hard drives with capacities of 20 and 40 GByte.
The new hard drives are called DiskStor and achieve a bandwidth of 12 Mbit/s when transferring data, so they only support that USB 1.1 standard. In addition, the disks are only compatible with Windows PCs. The 20 GB version (STH6201U-R) currently costs around $ 269 and the 40 GB version (STH6401U-R) costs around $ 349. The ACDSee image management software and the Datakeeper backup solution from PowerQuest are also in the box. However, prices and availability for the German market were not yet available.
