 NEW IRWIN EzPORT PARALLEL PORT BACKUP SYSTEM
 FOR ANY DESKTOP OR LAPTOP PC SYSTEM
 LAKE MARY, Fla., April 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Maynard Electronics, Inc., and Archive(R) company, today introduced the Irwin(R) EzPort(TM) transportable tape backup system. The EzPort system is ideal for use as a shared resource between any desktop, laptop or notebook PC or PS/2 and compatible system because it connects directly to the computer's parallel port. The Irwin EzPort drive requires no controller card, backs up a 40MB hard disk in less than 10 minutes and is compatible with the large installed base of Irwin AccuTrak(R) systems.
 The EzPort system, available with EzTape(R) for DOS software, begins shipping in May with a suggested retail price of $699 for the 120MB drive and $799 for the 250MB drive.
 The EzPort drive maximizes peripheral sharing. Because it shares the parallel port with a parallel printer, the user does not have to disconnect and re-connect a printer to perform backup and the drive can be shared between desktop and laptop computers.
 "The Irwin EzPort system plugs directly into the computer's parallel port, which means you never need to open your computer case to install it," said Greg Mangold, director of the Irwin Distribution Division of Maynard. "This feature makes it very attractive for users who need transportability and for those who demand maximum resource sharing."
 The EzPort backup systems are based on the proven technology of Irwin AccuTrak external tape backup products and are available in 120MB and 250MB capacities. The EzPort backup system, bundled with EzTape for DOS software, offers menu-driven displays, unattended backup and the flexibility to backup an entire hard disk, selected files, and an unlimited combination of files.
 EzTape for Windows software, available as an option, lets users backup in the Microsoft(A) Windows environment, while providing the convenience and advantages of a true windows graphical user interface. In addition, EzTape for Windows includes multi tasking capabilities, "point and click" operation, data compression, automatic scheduled backup, network support and an integrated tape librarian. Both EzTape for DOS and EzTape for Windows software support networks utilizing Novell NetWare(A), NetWare Lite(A), LANtastic(A), IBM PC LAN(A), and TOPS(A) products.
 Based on the Irwin AccuTrak minicartridge tape backup product, the EzPort tape drive can interchange data with minicartridge tape drives sold by IBM, Compaq, NCR, HP, NEC, Data General, Zenith and others. The EzPort drive can also interchange data with tapes written by EzTape for OS/2 software.
