Maxtor ships first 40GB external storage solution

United Arab Emirates: Sunday, August 26 - 2001 @ 11:41

This value-priced solution quickly and easily expands computer storage without opening up the computer. Ideal for digital photos and video, MP3 songs, electronic games and other large files, the 3000LE with USB 2.0 also delivers up to 40 times faster performance than current generation USB 1.1 hard drives.

The 3000LE, provides users with a convenient and speedy alternative to the complexity of installing internal hard disk drives. Operating at 5400RPM and providing 40GB of capacity, the 3000LE meets the demanding needs of today’s computer users by storing up to:

• 10,000 4-minute MP3 tunes
• 40,000 high-resolution digital photos (JPEG compressed)
• 40 hours of digital video (MPEG compressed)
• 1,000 video games
• or any combination of files

“The popular USB interface is used to connect a variety of external devices such as digital cameras, printers, scanners, and MP3 players, to computers with plug and play simplicity,” said Tex Schenkkan, senior vice president, consumer electronics and business development at Maxtor. “Now that the same easy connectivity is available to hard drive users at an affordable price, each family member can own a 3000LE to store their data and applications, thereby personalizing their content library and extending the value of the household PC or Mac computer.”

The 3000LE’s high speed USB 2.0 interface enables easy and instant connectivity with virtually all existing USB ports – including backward compatibility with USB 1.1.

“USB 2.0 makes data transfers easier when upgrading from older PCs, and also protects a consumer’s investment when purchasing new computers with the new USB port,” said Jason Ziller, Intel technology initiatives manager and USB Implementers Forum chairman. “From the user’s perspective, USB 2.0 has the same benefits and ease of use as USB 1.1 but with considerably higher bandwidth which greatly benefits the performance of devices such as Maxtor’s personal storage solution.”
