Announces Combo Hard Drive For Desktop or Mobile Storage
FREMONT, Calif. --(May 03, 2001)--
Addonics Technologies announced its Combo Hard Drive -- a hard
drive kit solution that provides a literal smorgasbord of options
for notebook or desktop computer users.
Addonics Combo Hard Drive combines the features of the Internal
and External hard drive into one device. When used as an external
hard drive, the device can be connected to one of the three
leading I/O interfaces -- USB, Firewire, or PCMCIA, by using
a corresponding Addonics interface cable. To use as a desktop
storage solution, users can install the bundled Desktop Drive
Cradle in any free 5 1/4" drive bay on the desktop computer
and then slide the Combo Hard Drive into the Desktop Drive Cradle.
The Combo Hard Drive consists of a 3.5-inch drive enclosure;
a desktop drive cradle for use as an internal drive; one of
the following interface cables -- USB, Firewire or PCMCIA, for
use as an External Storage device; AC/DC power adapter; ExData
Pro Software; software driver diskette, and installation guide.
Users do not need any special tools. It takes less than two
minutes to build a mobile storage solution. The Combo Hard Drive
enclosure also comes with a built-in cooling fan to ensure reliable
operation of even the largest capacity IDE hard drives. The
front panel of the drive enclosure is removable to accommodate
any 3.5-inch standard IDE drive, including Iomega ZIP drives
and Fujitsu MO drives. Users merely slide open the cover on
the drive enclosure and connect the cables to the IDE device.
Users then attach their choice of Firewire, USB or PCMCIA cable
options to the back of the Combo Hard Drive and their computer.
The Addonics Combo Hard Drive starts at $99 MSRP for the USB
version. The Addonics Combo Hard Drive enclosure is light and
small, adding just 4 ounces and less than 2 inches to the weight
and length of the drive selected for use. The Combo Hard Drive
supports DOS 5.0, Windows 3.1/95/98/NT/2000 PRO as well as Apple
Mac OS 9.1 and above, Linux and Solaris.
