Seagate BlackArmor PS110 External HDD Revealed New HDD Sports USB 3.0, Comes With Backup, Bare-Metal Recovery Software
ey showed off the new PS110 model, which comes with some excellent
features that complement the high-end BlackArmor series. The HDD itself
comes in at 500GB 7,200rpm and comes in a slimming black case. It's also
USB 3.0 and Seagate brags that it'll transfer files three times faster
than a stock USB 2.0 drive.
In addition to the USB 3.0 drive, the PS110 will also come with a
PCIExpress card that will enable your computer for USB 3.0 connectivity.
Also bundled with the drive is Acronis, a business-grade backup suite
with automated full-system backups, as well as SafetyDrill+, a
bare-metal recovery software suite (for the uninitiated, bare-metal
restore is when you restore from scrach, with no OS installed).
The PS110 and its bundled software are compatible with Windows XP and
later. Potential buyers should note that the PCI-Express USB 3.0 card is
usually only useful with laptops, so desktop buyers beware. The
BlackArmor PS110 is now shipping, and will cost $180.
