New Maxtor OneTouch Solution Hits a Terabyte


Maxtor today announced its new Maxtor OneTouch III, Turbo Edition external storage solution that delivers a simple-to-use solution for the consumer mass market.

With capacities up to one terabyte, the new Maxtor OneTouch III, Turbo Edition integrates Maxtor's automated backup and restore capabilities for Mac and PC users, allows users to configure the solution for either RAID 0 or RAID 1 and includes new software tools to synchronize data between two or more computers and to help repair PC systems after a damaging spyware or virus attack.



The Maxtor OneTouch III, Turbo Edition also includes a new industrial design, an improved software user interface and redesigned retail package. The device also features improved acoustics, a self-adjusting cooling system and an inner disk drive casing and shock mounts for additional drive protection.

The new Maxtor OneTouch III, Turbo Edition is addressed to more advanced users and professionals, such as videographers, photographers, and graphic artists who need high performance and high capacity. It is also user configurable as either RAID 0 or RAID 1.

RAID 0 divides a data stream and writes pieces of it to both drives at once, a process called striping. This process enables faster write and read times for speed-hungry applications like video editing and game loading. RAID 1, also called mirroring, simply takes everything that gets written to the primary hard drive and creates a copy of it on the second drive.

Maxtor has also added Sync -- a feature with the ability to automatically synchronize files between two or more systems on the same operating platform -- to its newest external storage solution. Also, to combat spyware, the new Maxtor OneTouch III, Turbo Edition includes a System Rollback feature that reverts a PC system to a healthier point in time while preserving current data.

All Maxtor OneTouch external storage and backup solutions come with a data security feature called Maxtor DriveLock, providing a password protection option to safeguard contents if the drive is ever lost or stolen. If the Maxtor OneTouch solution falls into the wrong hands, special firmware embedded on the hard drive restricts data access. Even if the internal hard drive is removed from the casing and attached to another computer, access will be denied without the correct password.

The Maxtor OneTouch III, Turbo Edition comes in a 600GB or 1TB capacity and features a triple USB 2.0/FireWire 400/FireWire 800 interface for easy connection to a Mac or PC. Availability begins in December at major U.S. retailers, distributors and online stores, as well as at www.maxstore.com. The manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) for the 600GB is $549.95 and $899.95 for the 1TB. Worldwide availability varies by region.
