Guardian MAXimus upgrade

NewerTech has announced an update to its Guardian MAXimus RAID 1 Mirror storage device which provides support for quad-interface connection choices. The device now works with eSATA, FireWire 400, FireWire 800 and USB 2.0 interface ports, and offers a new improved energy efficient design that lowers power usage a maximum of 40 percent for high-performance live backup at speeds up to 300MB per second. The MAXimus writes all information in real-time in two separate drives, each with up to 2TB storage capacity, to provide a mirrored copy.

In addition to the power reduction the new storage device includes reduced thermal emissions, an extended drive life, and a thermo-regulated "smart fan" to help with noise during use.

The Guardian MAXimus comes in 10 pre-configured models with different storage options and is compatible with Apple OS 8.6 to 9.2.2, and Mac OS X 10.0 or higher (with Mac OS X 10.2.8 or later required for the FireWire 800 and eSATA). Users can purchase the storage device from Other World Computing (OWC) starting at $230.
