Fujitsu Launches DynaMO 1300U2 LT Compact MO Drive

2/14/2005 - Fujitsu Europe Limited underlined its commitment to developing compelling tools for the mobile workforce with the launch of the DynaMO 1300U2 LT. The DynaMO 1300U2 LT is Fujitsuís most compact external 3.5" MO drive to-date. The drive is the same size as a 3.5" MO disk -and only three times as wide (9 x 9.4 x 0.5 cm). Weighing less than 230 grams and with a storage capacity of 1.3 GB per medium, it is the ideal storage extension for business users who want to safely store, backup and transport large volumes of data on the move.

To achieve this compact size and light weight, Fujitsu opted for a revolutionary top loader mechanism, which offers increased protection against dirt and dust due to its sealed casing. To prevent accidental loss of data, the top loading mechanism can only be opened when no data and files are in use. The new external drive is bus-powered and is extremely easy to use, simply connect the plug-and-play USB 2.0 cable for electricity supply and transferring data to the computer. The DynaMO 1300U2 LTís performance is excellent and even streaming high-resolution video data is possible, furthermore, the drive offers all the benefits of Magneto Optical Technology, which has been designed to combine the most important factors for removable storage including performance, capacity, rewriteability and ease of use in an ideal balance. It also provides an extremely cost effective and superior alternative to other removable technologies.

The DynaMO 1300U2 LT offers optional password protection and data encryption. SECUREMO FOLDER, Fujitsuís first software solution for an MO product, interacts with specified firmware and the respective media ID of the MO disk to ensure that individual MO disks are protected from unauthorized access.

Mike Nelson, FEL UK Sales Director explains: "With the DynaMO 1300U2 LT, Fujitsu has succeeded in packing the full performance of its market leading MO drives into an even more compact space to offer one of the smallest external removable storage solutions currently available on the market. Fujitsu plans to expand its top loading MO drive design even further and provide new models for different applications.Ē
