US Modular 12GB Drive

US Modular is preparing a high-capacity version of its mid-range Monstor Drive, the company announced on Tuesday. The updated version stores as much as 12GB of data (up from 8GB) on a 1.8-inch hard drive, providing enough room for music and other valuable data that won't fit on standard flash drives. Despite the increased storage, the transfer rates on the 4200RPM USB 2.0 drive remain comparatively quick, varying between 3.3MB and 6.5MB per second depending on the activity. The drive comes in a stainless steel enclosure that has a 1500G shock resistance rating. US Modular plans to ship the revised Monstor Drive on November 1st for $130.
