WiebeTech is now shipping 180GB ($550) and 200GB ($600) Super DesktopGB FireWire drives. The bus-powered drives now offer ATA-6 support (necessary for the larger capacities) and improved PowerBridge bus powering circuitry. Upgrades are available for past purchasers of Super DesktopGB, which "will allow units to receive a bridgeboard with hardware support for ATA-6 drives, new firmware and improved PowerBridge circuitry." The $80 upgrade requires the return of the user's drive. New drives include an enclosure, a vertical stand, a FireWire cable, an AC adapter, and MacDrive 5 software.
