NewerTech miniStack v3 Can Store One Million Photos

NewerTech miniStack v3 1TB Portable Storage Device

$550 for 1 terabyte of storage. It really is quite a good deal considering that it can store all the pictures you could take for the rest of your life. And this one is portable and pretty.

The miniStack v3 from NewerTech holds a thousand gigabytes of data – a million JPEG photos or 350,000 MP3 songs or whatever.

It’s compatible with the PC and Mac and it has various ports so users can connect to multiple devices, including digital cameras, printers, and memory card readers all at the same time.

It’s got three USB ports, two FireWire 800 ports, one FireWire 400, and one eSATA port. Data transfer rate is up to 150MB per second.

I measured it with my laser-guided fingers: 6.5 x 6.5 x 1.5 inches. Measured it also with my micrometer caliper: 165.100 x 165.100 x 38.100mm; no doubt, it’s compact enough to be mistaken for the iMac mini.

The miniStack v3 is also a bootable device. That means you can backup all of your computer’s contents in it, and restore from it if your rig goes dead. Or you want to clone it with another computer.
