Sony's new 2TB (terabyte) portable storage hard disk drive gives professionals bus-powered high-speed storage.
The PSZ-HA2T expands Sony's line of portable storage drives, and joins three current models including a 500GB and 1TB (PSZ-HA50 and PSZ-HA1T) hard disk model and a 256GB solid state drive (PSZ-SA25).
Each drive has a heavy silicon cover and protective case to withstand the rigors of field production and reduce shipping damage. Built-in shock resistance can absorb falls of up to 2.3 meters for SSD and up to 2 meters for HDD.
The drives are compliant with MIL-STD-810G standard, the IP5X dust-resistant standard and the IPX4 splash-resistant standard.Pre-installed formatting software lets users easily switch between exFAT, FAT32, HFS+ and NTFS formats, and an LED indicator lets users know the status of data transfers. The drives are also stackable for daisy-chaining with a design that allows for increased airflow between each to reduce heat build-up.
Each drive features one USB 3.0 and two FireWire 800 interfaces, allowing users to transfer video at up to 400MB/s with the SSD model and 120MB/s with the HDD models via USB 3.0.
Sony drives come with a full three-year limited warranty.
The PSZ-HA2T hard disk drive is planned to be available in June 2014 at the suggested price of $269.49.
