Imation Pro WX Trumpets 1.5TB of Wireless Storage

Imation Pro WX Wireless USB External Hard Drive

For $450, you can have the Imation Pro WX wireless USB hard drive, billed as the world’s first wireless USB external storage system. You can position the drive itself up to 30 feet away, and the small transmitter sticks into your PC’s USB port.

The hard drive offers 1.5TB of storage capacity, with a fast Wireless USB data transfer rate of up to 15MBs/second. That means you can back up a typical CD in under 50 seconds, and store up to 300,000 photos or 750 hours of video.

Imation assures that nobody else can hack into your wireless drive because there’s an innovative one-to-one connection inherent in the system that limits the possibility of signal interception. That’s the theory, at least.
