Neptune drives offer 1G of storage

Other World Computing announced that its Neptune line of external FireWire hard drives has doubled their capacity from 500 gigabytes to 1 terabyte.

Two new models are now available, a 750G gigabyte model for $169.99 and a 1 terabyte model for $299.99.

Neptune uses the same Oxford chipset that Other World Computing uses in its higher-end Mercury Elite storage line, the company said. The drives are portable, weighing 2.7 pounds, and measure 1.5 inches by 9 inches by 5.5 inches.

The drives also feature a 7200 RPM drive mechanism, two six-pin FireWire 400 ports, up to 32M data buffer and data transfer rates of up to 400 Mbps, the company added.

All drives come with a FireWire cable, Intech HD SpeedTools, Prosoft DataBackup III and NovaStor NovaBackup. The drives are covered by a one-year limited warranty, and the premium hard drive mechanisms are further covered by an additional four-year replacement warranty.
