Newer Technology, Inc. (NewerTech) today announced that the implementation of engineering enhancements on their NewerTech miniStack V2 combo external storage solution and integrated FireWire and USB 2.0 port expansion hub has resulted in even quieter operation.
The miniStack external FireWire 400/USB 2.0 single-drive solution that also integrates three USB 2.0 and two FireWire powered ports. The NewerTech storage solution was named Accessory of the Year by 123 Macmini, Top Product by MacWorld, and Editor’s Choice by MacAddict. With newly enhanced, almost silent operation enhancements, the NewerTech miniStack V2 has been named one of the Top 10 holiday gifts for 2006 by 123Macmini.
The miniStack V2 accomplishes new ultra quiet operation with a construction process that incorporates a passive heat sink that radiates heat away from the hard drive. The extra large aluminum heat sink directly contacts the drive on both the top and side to disperse the maximum amount of heat. An intelligent cooling system initiates an ultra-quiet protective fan only as a precautionary measure, providing balance between ultimate data security and quiet operation.
