Kano Technologies has introduced its SureFIRE800, an ultra-small, super-fast external hard drive that fits in your pocket and can store up to 80GB of data. It measures just 3.25 x 5.25 x .75 inches. With a fast interface and matching high-performance disk drives, the SureFIRE800 makes storing and accessing video, audio and data backups fast and easy. Its high-performance, 5400 RPM 8MB cache hard drives and FireWire 800 data connection, give the SureFIRE800 speeds matching those of drives three times its size. And, its FireWire 800/400 and USB 2.0 combo connection achieves data transfer rates of up to 800 Mb/second.
"The SureFIRE800 is the perfect storage solution for creative professionals living the mobile lifestyle," said Richard Young, Kano's president. "With its plug-and-play data connection and FireWire bus power capability, installation is quick and easy. You just plug it in. Then, you can drag-and-drop data to the SureFIRE800 and carry all your data with you. It's also great for backing up your laptop while you're traveling."
The SureFIRE800 is compatible with most Windows and Mac systems and comes with Dantz Retrospect Express backup software for Macs and PCs. Retrospect features full-image backup, specific-file backup and a backup scheduler.
SureFIRE800 comes ready to use, with cables and a user's guide. It is available in four models: a 20GB drive for $249; a 40GB drive for $289; a 60GB drive for $339; and an 80GB drive for $399.
