Maxtor releases 120GB external hard drive

Maxtor has announced its latest external hard drive model, the 120 gigabyte USB 2.0, which triples the storage capacity for its Personal Storage 3000LE external hard disk drive products.

The Personal Storage 3000LE family, which also includes a 40GB model, has been designed to back up and archive the increasing amount of large files present today, including digital photos, audio clips, graphics, home videos and electronic games. The USB interface also allows users to transport large files between multiple systems without having to turn on their PCs.

USB 2.0 will connect with most existing USB ports and is backward compatible with USB 1.1. To assist users upgrading previous generation desktop and laptop computers and PCs to USB 2.0 performance, Maxtor also offers a USB 2.0 PCT Adaptor card, which features four external and one internal high-speed ports.

The 120GB 3000LE will be available nationally in April and will retail for around $899. The 40GB personal storage model has an RRP of $545.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
