Origin adds 750GB, 1TB external drives
Origin Storage has recently announced the addition of two new capacities to its Data Locker external hard drives, with reportedly industry first 1TB and 750GB versions. Like the existing 320GB and 500GB versions, the new drives feature AES hardware encryption and a six- to 18-digit PIN password. The drives have an LCD keypad for password input, and can dismount the drive, toggle keytones on or off or erase the drive.
All of the 2.5-inch SATA drives are powered only by the USB port, and are compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems. The virtual keypad on the LCD has random number placement to help prevent onlookers to see the password as it's being entered, and the drives have a brute force attack detection system that will wipe the contents clean before the case is physically opened.
The 1TB Drive Data Locker drive is priced at $650, the 750GB drive costs $490, the 500GB drive is $390 and the 320GB version is $294.
