NewerTech Guardian MAXimus

2.0TB Multi-Interface Hardware RAID-1
(Mirrored) Data Redundant Solution

Mac / PC / USB 3.0 & 2.0 / FireWire 800 / FireWire 400 / eSATA
  • Mac
  • PC
  • eSATA
  • FireWire 800/400
  • USB 3.0
Provides "live activity" backup/data redundancy
of your critical data with Plug and Play
simplicity on any Mac or PC.
MAXimum Performance & Compatibility
Underneath Guardian MAX's sleek, unassuming housing beats the heart of a super protector ready to save large amounts of precious data quickly, reliably, and effortlessly. Pre-configured hardware RAID solutions feature two paired lightning fast SATA 1.5/3.0Gb/s drives with up to 2.0TB each of storage capacity and a high speed Custom Oxford 946DSE/3100 Integrated Chipset featuring FireWire 800/400, USB 3.0, and eSATA ports to deliver some of the fastest single drive transfer rates possible...up to 300MB per second! Enclosure only kits are also available for "add your own hard drive" flexibility and economy With its multiple interface connections, Guardian MAXimus makes adding vault-like mirrored data storage performance to Macintosh and Windows computers Plug and Play easy.
MAXimum Real Time Redundancy
Real performance can also be measured by intangibles like having peace of mind knowing your critical data is always safe! Should you experience a hard drive failure, the ever vigilant Guardian MAXimus automatically and seamlessly continues data read/write functions with the remaining drive. And with the convenient front panel drive status LEDs, you'll know at a glance which drive is being accessed and if you need to take any action.
Why You Need Guardian MAXimus RAID-1
Guardian MAXimus is "live activity" backup of financial records, medical files, business projects...any critical data that you simply cannot risk losing. It's always guarding against data loss by writing the same information in real-time to two separate drives for a "mirrored" copy. It also protects you from costly system downtime and data restoring after a single hard drive-equipped system crash. Even daily scheduled software driven data backups can't protect you from the time of your last backup and when your computer's internal drive fails.
