The units weigh 179g, are powered by USB 2.0, and come with NTI Backup Now EZ software on the drive. The software package includes simple restore, disaster recovery and data encryption up to 256-bit, and also allows the user to customers backup preferences and schedule. There’s also an internal shock senor and ramp loading technology to protect the drive and data.
The drives start at $139 for the 500GB model, and are available through retail stores.
