WiebeTech's Newest Desktop Enclosure, ToughTech™ XE offers eSATA, dual FireWire & USB ports

Wichita, KS — August 2, 2006 — WiebeTech's popular desktop enclosure, ToughTech™, is now available with four ports: eSATA, dual FireWire 800 (400 compatible) and USB2 over a screaming fast Oxford 924 bridge. The 924 outperforms the 922 in FireWire and USB, making the new ToughTech XE the all around most connectable and fastest ToughTech available.

ToughTech XE provides FlexMount™ anti-shock protection for any 3.5" SATA drive and fully supports SATA 1 and 2 drives with transfer rates up to 1.5 or 3.0 Gbps.

"We are pleased to offer yet another model in our ToughTech series," said James Wiebe, CEO of WiebeTech. "The new ToughTech XE gives the most flexible connectivity and fastest data transfer rates as well as offering users anti-shock protection for their valuable data."

ToughTech XE is fully compatible with any Mac or PC with an eSATA, FireWire or USB2 port. FlexMount protection offers a shock absorber that mounts between the drive and the enclosure that protects the drive from bumps and vibrations.

The new ToughTech XE joins WiebeTech's popular existing line of ToughTech desktop enclosures: ToughTech 400 with dual FireWire 400 ports for IDE drives, ToughTech 800 with dual FireWire 800 (400 compatible) ports for IDE drives and ToughTech eSATA with a single eSATA port for SATA drives.
