Memorex Ultra TravelDrive
Memorex on Thursday announced it would add a 500GB version of its portable hard disk drive to its Ultra TravelDrive range, replacing the 320GB drive as the largest capacity offering. At the same time, the company dropped the 80GB and 120GB capacity versions of the drives. The 2.5-inch drive requires only a USB 2.0 connection to both transfer files and power up.
Like all Ultra TravelDrive devices, the 500GB variant ships with a black body and a rubberized surface-gripping area, but also includes two interchangeable faceplates in different colors. The Ultra TravelDrives include a one-button back-up function and are compatible with both PCs and Macs.
The new 500GB Ultra TravelDrive is available now, priced at nearly $300. The 320GB Ultra lists for $180, with the 250GB version listed at $140 and the 160GB priced at $90.
