SmartDisk Introduces Portable HDD With An Always-On Display
SmartDisk introduced FireLite XPress, the portable, palm-sized hard drive that includes a cholesteric liquid crystal display. The always-on display is readable without power, identifies the drive by a user-designated name, indicates the last date that information was recorded and provides a table of contents for the drive.
The display is claimed to provide excellent readability even in direct sunlight, allow for wide-angle viewing and exhibit high brightness and contrast.
Featuring sleek, metal casings for durability, FireLite drives are palm-sized and weigh about six ounces. They are "Mass Storage Class" peripherals, requiring no driver installation when used with operating systems like Mac OS X, Mac OS 9, Windows XP and Windows Me.
All FireLite drives, including the new XPress, feature BounceBack Express backup software.
Available in June, FireLite XPress drives have MSRPs of $199.99 (60GB) and $299.99 (120GB).
