Addonics says new removable drive disk arrays “easy as using a VHS cassette”

Addonics Technologies Inc., announced a pair of new removable disk arrays this week which accommodate 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch SATA drives for desktop and other uses.

The company’s 2.5-inch Snap-In Disk Array can hold up to four SATA HHDs or SSDs, and is intended to help increase storage for small computers, mini ATX systems or for applications that require a large number of drives, according to Addonics.

The 3.5-inch version can fit five drives, and can be used with the company’s lineup of Storage Towers and Port Multipler to create a RAID storage system.

In marketing materials, the company curiously says its new removable disk arrays are “as easy as using a VHS cassette,” referring to the outdated home video format.

According to the company, the arrays are priced at $69.95 and $99 for the 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch models, respectively.

This isn’t the only removable disk array lineup to pop up recently: Earlier this month, Imation Corp. added a USB-enabled docking station for its removable disk offerings.
