MCE IRVINE, CA, June 11, 2007 – MCE Technologies, LLC (MCE) is now shipping the previously announced MobileStor Performance™ 250GB hard drive upgrade solution for the MacBook Pro and MacBook. Included with each MCE MobileStor Performance™ 250GB hard drive upgrade solution is an external, portable 2.5” SATA enclosure with both eSATA and USB 2.0 interfaces facilitating easy data transfer from the original drive, SuperDuper! cloning/backup software, all tools required for installation, and an illustrated installation manual. The MCE MobileStor Performance™ 250GB solution is available for immediate shipment at a price of $279.
“The 250GB MobileStor Performance™ total hard drive upgrade solution provides not only an unprecedented hard drive capacity for the MacBook Pro and MacBook, but also provides every single piece of equipment necessary to successfully complete the hard drive upgrade and transfer all information from the original drive to the new one. It also allows for the continued use of the original SATA hard drive for backing up or general portable external storage,” stated Arnold Ramirez, president of MCE.
The MCE MobileStor Performance™ 250GB Hard Drive Upgrade Solution features a rotational speed of 5400RPM, a maximum sustained data transfer rate of 66MB/sec and burst transfer rates of 150MB/sec. The drive also features Native Command Queing (NCQ) in which the drive automatically reorders commands in the most efficient way based on the location of data on its platters in order to retrieve that data with the least latency. S.M.A.R.T. status monitoring is also supported and can warn of possible or impending disk failure long before one actually occurs allowing the user to take early action to keep their data safe. The drive’s S.M.A.R.T. status can be verified using Apple’s Disk Utility or System Profiler program.
The included portable, external 2.5” SATA enclosure is bootable on all Intel Macs and features a unique screw-less design for easy installation of the original drive. The enclosure provides both eSATA and USB 2.0 interfaces for easy data transfer from the original drive to the new one using the included SuperDuper! cloning/backup software. An illustrated installation manual and all tools for performing the upgrade are also included. See www.mcetech.com/msperformance for more information and specifications.
