Fujitsu today launched its new travel-ready and world’s highest capacity 2.5” External Hard Disk Drive (HDD) for the U.S. market. Featuring up to 300GB of storage space in a sleek, compact design, the new External HDDs are built on the Fujitsu mobile hard disk technology, providing an ideal solution for users looking for a portable HDD with industry-leading capacity.

Designed for the busy mobile professional, the Fujitsu External Hard Disk Drive comes equipped with all of the necessary components to enable users to take their data wherever they go.

The slim device includes an integrated USB 2.0 cable to allow for quick and easy connectivity. Additionally, because the product is USB bus-powered, a laptop can lend the device the necessary power without external resources required. Users can also be assured that their data will be protected with the distinctive 16-point omnidirectional shock mounting design, which helps to reduce the effect of impact.

For extra security and backup convenience, the Fujitsu External HDDs are also bundled with a comprehensive Data Protection Suite for PC. Apricorn Inc.’s EZ Gig II for Windows enables a system to be backed up as an image or an exact clone, while at the same time permitting backups to be compressed into a single file, allowing individual files to be restored, and providing security with password protection. There is also the Cryptainer encryption program that helps guarantee privacy, with the AES 256 or Blowfish 448 bit encryption. Finally, to ensure data integrity, Second Copy 2000 synchronizing software coordinates file sharing and backup between multiple computers.

“We are proud to launch the world’s highest capacity 2.5” External HDD product into the marketplace at a time when consumers are demanding more storage, compact designs, and features that advance the level of data security,” said Lorne Wilson, senior vice president, sales and marketing, Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. “Fujitsu has almost forty years of experience in the hard disk drive industry, and we have successfully expanded our 2.5” HDD business over the last fourteen years. As a result of our focus and commitment to R&D, we have been able to leverage our expertise in this field to create an ideal solution for portable backup and storage solutions.”

Available in capacities of up to 300GB and featuring a user-friendly interface, the new Fujitsu device is an excellent solution for backing up and storing work files, MP3s, videos and photos. Additionally, the external hard disk drive can be utilized as a backup application for an entire PC system.
