NewrTech-Guardian MAXimus

Newertech has announced its Guardian MAXimus RAID-1 Mirror triple interface model. The FireWire 800/400+USB 2.0 drive has two 300GB 10,000RPM drives in a RAID-1 (mirror) for redundant, high-speed storage. The company claims data rates up to 100MB per second and utilizes Western Digital VelociRaptor SATA drives. The MAXimus is ready for Time Machine and geared toward Audio/Video and photo editing, as well as 3D rendering projects. The drive is available immediately for $900 and is compatible with Mac OS X 10.1 and later (as well as legacy Macs on OS 8.6-9.2), requiring Mac OS X 10.2 and later for FireWire 800 and USB 2.0.

The MAXimus includes a $200 retail value software package of ProSoft Engineering Data Backup 3, NovaStor NovaBACKUP, and Intech SpeedTools Utilities.

The drive features a 16MB drive cache and they attach via a custom Oxford 924 Based Bridge Solution with two FireWire 800 ports, one FireWire 400 port and one USB 2.0 port (backward compatible with USB 1.1). The two mirrored 300GB drives, each offering up to 1.4 million hours MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure), allow the Guardian MAXimus to exceed enterprise-class standards for reliability.

The MAXimus carries a two-year warranty and each drive carries a three-year warranty. The drive also comes with a Kensington security slot.
