Transcend StoreJet hard drive gets a face-lift

Transcend makes its StoreJet compact external drive look better.

If small in size but big in capacity aren't good enough for you, Transcend on Wednesday will offer a little extra with a new member in its StoreJet external hard drive family.

The new StoreJet 25F comes in a designer gloss diamond pattern and lustrous metallic finish and features anti-slip rubber feet to provide a stable base for resting on a table or computer case.

The drive offers 500GB of storage space and comes in a size similar to the company's previous StoreJet external hard drives.

Measuring only 4.5 inches by 3.2 inches by 0.6-inch, the StoreJet 25F has only one USB 2.0 connection that works both as the data and power connector.

The drive ships with StoreJet elite data management tools that have Web site AutoLogin, Mobile Favorites with NoTrace Internet browsing, Secret-Zip file encryption, Mobile E-mail, Online Update, and intelligent backup scheduling, security, and file compression functions.

Transcend's StoreJet 25F supports all commonly used operating systems, including Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Mac, and Linux. The drive will be available soon, but its cost information has not been released.
