Plextor Launches Shockproof Portable HDDs

Plextor launched its first shock-proof portable hard disk drives created "for the rough and tumble of modern life". In 80 and 120GB capacities, the silver lightweight 2.5" PX-SP08U & PX-SP12U drives are designed to withstand the inevitable knocks and bumps of normal use that can seriously affect more fragile units. They come with a silicon skin and a handy carrying pouch to protect the chassis from shocks and scratches. PX-SP08U and PX-SP12U have 80GB and 120GB respective capacities, feature 8MB cache and 5400rpm spindle speed.

In addition, Plextor is adding a 160GB capacity drive to its popular professional Network-Attached Storage (NAS) unit. The PX-EH16L has all the useful features of its 250/400GB brothers, but is more affordable for small businesses and professional home users. This fan-less drive operates silently for minimum intrusion in an office environment. The noise reduction is achieved by the heat-release aluminum case and the convection cooling design which needs no fan installed. As well as providing instant shared storage across the network, the PX-EH16L includes: a print server that can share a printer over the network when connected to it via USB; and an automated backup scheduler from the NAS to a USB-connected external HDD of the same capacity. Additionally, the Professional Network HDD is both secure and flexible: it includes a high security feature so that the administrator can limit access to certain folders; and it can be configured as a dedicated FTP server.

The new products will be available from April 2006 from the network of Plextor dealers. They are covered by Plextor’s Fast Warranty Service (2-year warranty in the EU, Norway and Switzerland (Collect & Return); 1 year in other countries).
