OWC first with 320GB, 7,200RPM portable drive

OWC Mercury OTG 320GB 7K

Other World Computing says it has set a newer record with the launch of the Mercury On-the-Go 320GB 7200RPM drive. The disk uses a newer 2.5-inch Hitachi TravelStar drive that makes it the largest-capacity portable drive to spin at the same 7,200RPM speed as desktop models; the 320GB of space is 60 percent more than current 200GB disks at the same physical size. The translucent drive also has multiple interface options that can include external SATA and FireWire 800, either of which ensures the port is never a bottleneck.

The add-on drive comes with both NovaStor's NovaBackup to automate backing up Windows PCs and Prosoft DataBackup III for Mac OS X systems. A basic version with USB 2.0 alone for $240; dual-input versions at approximately $260 add either eSATA or FireWire 400. A flagship three-input edition includes FireWire 400 and 800 jacks in addition to the USB for $280.
