Plextor Corp. is introducing the PX-SP family of shock proof, portable hard disk drives (HDD). The external drives are available in two capacities: 80 GB (PX-SP08U) and 120 GB (PX-SP12U).
PX-SP Series come with a specially designed silicon jacket bumper that helps prevent the unit from crashing if it is accidentally dropped. Compatible with both Microsoft Windows and Apple Macintosh personal computers, the PX-SP features a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port interface for a maximum data transmission speed of 480 Mbps.
Plextor's retail package comes with everything a user needs to get started, including a portable external hard drive, silicon jacket bumper, Hi-Speed USB 2.0 cable, and quick start guide.
Plextor PX-SP series drives measure just 3.33 x 0.74 x 5.51 inches (W/H/D) and weigh less than 8 ounces. The company will ship to distributors in North and South America in May 2006.
The PX-SP08U, with 80 GB capacity, has a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of US$169. The PX-SP12U, with 120 GB capacity, has a MSRP of US$260.00. All retail packages include two-year full parts and labor warranty and unlimited toll-free technical support.
