Sony debuts a 5GB Compactvault removable hard disk drive that uses Compact Flash type II slots, such as those found in digital still cameras.
Measuring just over 1 ½ inches wide and less than 1 ½ inches high, the Compactvault drive can hold up to 1,600 JPEG images (at 3MB each) or 200 minutes of MPEG4 video. The new drive also features high transfer speeds of up to 12MB/sec.
Shipping will begin later this month with a suggested retail price of $199.99. The Compactvault drive will be available online at SonyStyle.com, SonyStyle stores and authorized retailers nationwide.
