World’s first wireless USB external hard drive

Imation announced its Pro WX Wireless USB hard drive that provides 1.5TB of storage.

With a fast Wireless USB data transfer rate of up to 15MBs/second, the product can back up a typical CD in under 50 seconds. Inherent in its Wireless USB technology, Pro WX wireless hard drive offers an innovative one-to-one connection that limits the possibility of signal interception and securely backs up data whenever it is in range up to 30 feet, similar to a direct attached storage device.

The hard drive comes complete with an integrated stand for vertical or horizontal orientation; low capacity/data activity indicator lights for easy identification of data processes with built-in sleep mode for energy conservation; and one-touch, backup sync buttons for easy-to-use automatic backup of data. The product is compatible with both PC and Mac operating systems and doesn’t require batteries.

The Imation Pro WX wireless USB hard drive is currently available for $449.99 in the United States.
