"The GigaBank(TM) Elite 40 is perfect for the mobile professional. With a single-touch users can easily back-up a computer, store important files, save and transport digital photos and MP3s or transfer files from one computer to another," said Tony Andrews, Vice President of Engineering and Product Development for I/OMagic Corporation.
The I/OMagic GigaBank(TM) Elite 40 is powered through the use of a built-in USB 2.0 connector (it is also USB 1.1 backwards compatible), which can be stored in the drive enclosure when it is not in use. It also comes with a simulated leather and chrome case, and is hot swappable (a device that can be plugged/unplugged into a computer while the computer is on). The GigaBank(TM) Elite 40 supports Windows XP/2000/ME/98SE.
I/OMagic anticipates shipping its new GigaBank(TM) Elite 40 to Office Depot stores in January 2005 with an introductory suggested retail price of $229.99.
I/OMagic also offers the GigaBank(TM) 2.2, currently available at Circuit City and Staples stores, and the GigaBank(TM) 4.0 available at Circuit City, Staples, and Office Depot stores.
