Thursday, September 12th, 2013 | Author:

dual_miniOther World Computing has expanded its Mercury Elite Pro Dual mini portable hardware-RAID storage product line with two new 3.0TB models, available as 3.0TB RAID-1 (for robust data protection) or 3.0TB RAID-0 (for maximum performance).

What it does: This bus-powered (no AC adapter is required) unit stores a tremendous amount of data safely using RAID technology, or even more data with super-fast access. Featuring hardware RAID-1 (mirrored) redundancy for data protection or RAID-0 (striped) for maximum throughput, the Mercury Elite Pro Dual mini contains two 2.5″ hard drives or OWC Mercury Electra 6G SSDs for up to 3.0TB of capacity. A “quad interface” of FireWire 800, FireWire 400, USB 2.0, and eSATA connections delivers data transfer speeds of up to 300MB/s with Mac and PC computers.

Why it’s cool: It’s the ultimate portable storage solution for professional users. Lightweight, bus-powered, and impact-resistant, in a 5.6 in (D) x 6.1 in (W) x 1.1 in (H) brushed aluminum enclosure with near silent, fanless operation, the Mercury Elite Pro Dual mini fits easily into laptop, photography, and other gear bags because of its side-by-side drive orientation. Fast, hardware-RAID technology is ideal for demanding data storage and backup needs, and can be configured with either high-performance hard disks or SSDs.

NuGuard KX

Newer Technology confirmed that its popular NuGuard KX case, the world’s only iPhone case with kinetic energy X-Orbing gel, is ready to protect the amazing new iPhone 5Sannounced this week by Apple Inc. The KX case features a slim, one-piece design that combines a rugged, comfort-grip shell with a soft core. It’s tough: the KX goes beyond Mil-Spec certified protection and is backed by a lifetime warranty. Encased in a NuGuard KX case, the iPhone easily survives 20-foot drops onto concrete — far more than the average parking-lot free-fall that lies ahead for many new iPhones.

Most people need to protect their iPhone to the max — but they don’t want to encase it in hard, bulky plastic. That’s why we developed the NuGuard KX case. Today, we’re pleased to announce that it works perfectly with the iPhone 5S,” said Larry O’Connor, president of Newer Technology. “With its unique, made in the USA X-Orbing gel, the NuGuard KX installs in seconds to provide incredible protection against drops and scratches, while maintaining a remarkably slim, lightweight profile that highlights the forward-thinking look of your iPhone 5S.” Article Continues…
