Personal storage devices have hit a new high with the latest offering from Maxtor. The 3000XT can store 160GB in various formats on a simple external drive. This allows users space for a range of digital material that otherwise might overwhelm the capacity of an ordinary hard disk.

“As the world becomes increasingly digital, more and more hard drive capacity is needed to store digital belongings,” said Tex Schenkkan, senior vice president, consumer electronics and business development at Maxtor. “There is an increasing need among professionals and home AV enthusiasts for ‘tanker-class’ solutions that allow vast amounts of data to be stored in a single container, with the flexibility to transfer this data from one system to another more conveniantly.”

The 3000XT is connected with a FireWire or iLink port that allows transfer speeds of up to 400Mbps. Another advantage of the system is that it allows files to be stored uncompressed so there is no risk of the quality of files being compromised.
