Canoga Park, (Los Angeles) California USA – January 7, 2008 – Rocstor, a leading provider of fast, high-capacity data storage solutions, is announcing its new line of “ROCPORT SB” pocket external hard drives. Rocport SB Pocket Drives deliver exceptional performance and reliability. Engineered to meet the needs of demanding mobile data storage market, the 2.5” Rocport external hard drive is compatible with both Windows® and Macintosh® environments.
ROCPORT SB — Just like other Rocstor products, these drives are both bus-powered and bootable according to Mr. Asher, Director of Business Development. The new Rocport SB Pocket Drives contain a fast, high capacity 2.5” SATA drive mechanism, with blazing 1,500 MB/sec transfer speeds and multiple interfaces in a stylish aluminum case for thermal efficiency and silent operation.
Rocport SB Pocket Drives feature the state of the art DuoLink connector – both USB and SATA in the same port; with two additional FireWire 800 (1394b IEEE) ports, makes this quad interface device the most versatile and rugged drive in the market today. For extra flexibility, an optional cable can connect the FireWire 800 ports to any FireWire 400 (1394a IEEE) ports in any Mac or PC.
The advanced patented anti-shock chamber and shock-absorbent casing protect the drive against impact damage, accidental drops and bumps. These outstanding design features prolong product life and protect data integrity.
Despite the diminutive size (L x W x H: 5.1 x 3.1 x 0.8 Inches or 129.5 x 80 x 21 mm) and shock-resistant mechanism, the wide array of ports ensures maximum compatibility regardless of the type of computer or operating system that is used.
