AVASTOR LAUNCHES NEW LINE OF SDX PORTABLE HARD DRIVES

Peachtree City, GA, July 21, 2008—Avastor, a leading manufacturer of ultimate storage solutions for audio/video professionals, introduces its new line of SDX portable hard disk drives. Targeting the prosumer market – as well as the pro market – the SDX line is more competitively priced than the highly popular HDX drive which offers the ultimate in external professional portable storage.

The SDX comes with a mandate for quality features that will enhance performance. For example, each SDX drive has an external 3 amp grounded DC power supply that auto senses 90-240V that makes for worldwide compatibility with an IEC power cord. Also every SDX has an ultra-quiet cooling fan for maximum heat dissipation and power and activity lights, a feature not usually found in drives in this price range. To ensure maximum connectivity, performance and durability, the SDX drives are available in an anodized aluminum design. The power adapter uses extra heavy gauge wire as well as a heavy duty connector with oversized pins for 5 VDC and 12 VDC.

“The SDX hard disk drives are designed to exceed the requirements of the most demanding users,? explains Avastor President Steve Smith. “Whether you are storing uncompressed high-definition digital video, multi-track high-resolution audio, mega-pixel digital photography or any application that requires maximum throughput, the Avastor SDX with uncompromised performance and legendary reliability meets the challenge.?

The SDX line is available in three models: SDX 200 (USB 2.0 model), SDX 400 (dual FireWire 400/USB 2.0) and SDX 1000 (QUAD model: FireWire 400/800/eSATA/USB2.0), each with a choice of 80 GB, 160 GB, 250 GB, 500 GB, 750 GB or 1 TB capacities. eSATA technology offers 3Gb/s performance in a single drive configuration for data-intensive applications including real-time video editing, digital photography and high-speed data back up. All models are equipped with the Oxford Semiconductor bridgeboard which offers compatibility and reliability across different computer platforms and digital workstations – for example, Digidesign Protools.

Just like the HDX series, every SDX has a sustained speed test and is MAC HFS+ formatted before being shipped. All SDX drives are equipped with 7200 RPM SATA II internal drive mechanisms with up to 32 MB cache. High-quality, data cables are included for each interface type, allowing the drives to be easily connected straight out of the box. Every SDX hard disk drive is packaged in a compact, reusable box with a convenient carry handle and is backed by a comprehensive two-year warranty.

The SDX portable hard disk drive line is currently shipping and begins retailing at $135.00 USD. For more information, please visit, www.avastor.com
