Transcend has followed Iomega’s recent lead by launching a high-capacity, portable USB hard disk. Aimed at users who want all of their data with them, but don’t fancy lugging a laptop around, Transcend’s StoreJet product is a 1.8-inch hard disk that comes bundled with a huge range of software titles to boost its security and back-up functions. Data and power are transferred directly to the StoreJet drive via a single USB cable, making it easy to connect and power up using both desktop and notebook PCs. The drive also comes supplied with a comprehensive ‘StoreJet Software Pack’ - packed with programs such as ExBoot Express, PC Lock, Security HDD, My Documents, Mobile Internet Explorer Favorites, Mobile Outlook Express and Address Book Editor. ExBoot Express provides full back-up functions and easy synchronisation with a PC, while PC Lock and Security HDD applications help keep data private and secure. Mobile Internet Explorer Favorites and Mobile Outlook Express meanwhile allow users to take their e-mail with them wherever they go. Barely bigger than a standard business card, the StoreJet is available in 20GB and 40GB capacities. The drive is compatible with Windows 98 and later, while connections wise it is compliant with both hi-speed USB 2.0 and USB 1.1. It also includes a full, two-year warranty. Iomega was the last vendor to enter the mobile hard disk market with the recent launch of its ‘USB 2.0 Mini Hard Drive’. This sleek device weighs just 99 grams and is compact enough to fit into a user’s shirt pocket. It’s also the first Iomega hard drive to receive 100% of its power from a standard USB data port.
