H45 Technology Announces QUICKDRIVE, a Conversion Kit that Permits the Re-use of Surplus Hard Drives as External Backup or Additional Storage.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 22, 1996---H45 Technology's new QUICKDRIVE enables users to get more life out of surplus hard drives.

As computers are upgraded to handle the demands of new software, the old hard drive can be re-used rather than discarded. For less than $100 the old drive can be put to use as a backup device or can be used as a portable storage subsystem. QUICKDRIVE is a compact enclosure for any 3.5" IDE hard drive, and the kit comes complete with an internal power supply and parallel port interface.

"QUICKDRIVE is the perfect answer to the question of what to do with surplus drives," said Henryk Szejnwald, president of H45 Technology. "As users upgrade to Windows 95, Windows NT or OS/2 they usually add a larger hard drive and then wonder how to dispose of the old unit. QUICKDRIVE permits the surplus drive to be used as a portable device or in place of tape backup. The use of the parallel port makes it simple to connect and easy to use, and EPP parallel ports provide data transfer rates that are almost as fast as the internal IDE controller card. Typically QUICKDRIVE provides higher performance than the IOMEGA ZIP drive, and in addition to larger storage capacity the total cost to the user is much less."

The QUICKDRIVE is a complete kit with everything needed to connect virtually any 3.5" IDE drive. Rails are provided for shock-mounting the drive, and the kit contains all internal cables for simple connection. QUICKDRIVE has both a parallel port and printer pass-through port, and the pass-through port can be used to connect other parallel port devices in a daisy-chain manner. QUICKDRIVE comes complete with installation and device driver software for DOS, Windows, Windows 95, Windows NT, and OS/2 operating systems. Simple, easy to follow instructions are included.
