The temperature is dropping and so are prices!

ministack-iceIt’s the middle of January, and it’s C-O-L-D here in Woodstock, IL. We even had to stop OWC Grant from licking our Wind Turbine because his tongue kept sticking to it.

Though it may be cold out, the deals are just heating up. Last week, we had some great price drops on the NewerTech Guardian MAXimus. Now, that torch has passed on to the GMAX’s little brother, the miniStack v3. We’ll talk about that in a moment. Right now, let’s look at what you get.

The NewerTech miniStack v3 provides up to 2.0TB of storage with support for FireWire 800/400, USB2, and eSATA, plus the convenience and the function of an integrated FireWire/USB2 Powered Hub. All of that functionality is packed into a compact “Mac mini” sized profile of 6.5” x 6.5” x 1.5”.

Ideal for any Mac or PC, the miniStack v3 offers full compatibility for performance data access via whichever interface you have best available. The “Quad Interface” offered makes this great for moving between multiple systems; you can connect via FireWire 800, FireWire 400, USB2, or eSATA for up to 150MB/second performance.

Even if you don’t use it for your boot drive, its availability in capacities up to 2.0TB make it great for General Data, Backup (it’s Time Machine Ready), Audio/Video (it’s also fully A/V Certified), Music, Photo work, and more. You can even use it as a startup drive; it’s fully bootable from any of the 4 interfaces.

It doesn’t even make a dent in your computer’s available ports, as its built-in Powered Hub provides additional FireWire 800, FireWire 400, and USB2 ports.

As with all OWC and Newer Technology storage solutions, the FireWire 800, FireWire 400, USB2, and eSATA cables all included, as well as Intech HD Speedtools (Mac), Prosoft DataBackup 3 (OS X), NovaBackup (Windows), and Carbon Copy Cloner (OS X) Software. And because we stand behind our products, the miniStack v3 is backed by an industry leading 3 Year NewerTech Warranty.

However, that’s probably not why you’ve read this far. We mentioned some great new price drops, so here they are:

Yeah, it may be cold out, but these great new prices sure put a warm feeling in your heart. We’re pretty sure this guy would agree.

      Is there a power brick available that will power up to 4 of these at a time? Having 4 bricks for 4 mini stacks takes up too many valuable power sockets not to mention the mess of tangled cables it generates underneath the desk.
