Single-Bay SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and eSATA w/ Removable Tray Module.
Sans Digital, a leading provider of high-performance storage subsystems, is introducing the world’s first single bay SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and eSATA enclosure with removable tray modules: the MobileSTOR MS1UTP. The MS1UTP is based on the same concepts as the award winning MobileSTOR MS1UT and MS1CT models, which implement two high performance connectivity interfaces: the SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and the eSATA. The MS1UTP is a single bay storage system with high performance and versatile interfaces to accommodate your storage expansion needs.
MobileSTOR MS1UTP is a unique external 3.5″ SATA hard drive enclosure equipped with a removable hard drive tray, along with USB 3.0 and eSATA dual interfaces. The new USB 3.0 specification provides up to 5Gb/s of data bandwidth, which is 10x faster than the transferring speed of USB 2.0. High performance hard drives can now utilize this increased bandwidth to provide maximum data transfer performance. USB 3.0 is fast, versatile, and allows backward compatibility with USB 2.0 ports when the USB 3.0 port is unavailable. The combination of a fan-less design and aluminum housing provides a quiet yet cool operation. With portability in mind, the compact MS1UTP weighs only 2.2 lbs. The removable hard drive tray is interchangeable with certain MobileSTOR or MobileRAID models to provide the best compatibility between various MobileSTOR and MobileRAID. The versatile MS1UTP could also be placed either vertically or horizontally on your desktop. MS1UTP supports OS such as MS-Windows, Linux and Mac OS with Time Machine. This combination of versatility, performance, and new technology makes the MS1UTP your ideal storage system for personal or creative professional data.
Priced at $65, with eSATA and USB 3.0 support as well as backward compatibility to USB 2.0, the new MobileSTOR MS1UTP is extremely flexible and works with virtually any computer. “The MS1UTP provides the best of both worlds with USB 3.0 and eSATA,” said Stanley Chan, Sans Digital’s Director of Business Development. “Along with the removable tray module that is compatible with other MobileSTOR and MobileRAID series, MS1UTP is the building block for high performance storage systems.
