Vista, California-based Summatec Computer Corp believes the Mirror Link 2.5 inch removable hard drive which it has spent the past four years developing, will rival all other removable hard drives on the market. The company, which was established four years ago to research and develop the Mirror Link product, says that it is very robust, secure and has a guaranteed life span of 1 million hours. Mirror Link has been available across the world for the past three months, and is apparently doing well. Vista is particularly proud that certain high government offices in Washington DC are in the process of installing Mirror Link into their systems. Summatec president Derrill Fussell said that the drive is installed via a simple plug-in device, requiring no technical or specialized knowledge, fitting into a 5.25 inch bay. The product currently has a capacity of 3Gb, and should make 5Gb by August, 8Gb by next spring, and to 20Gb by the year 2000. Mirror Link is aimed at the small office and home office user and Fussell said that Summatec is giving the public the ability to increase their storage space just like they buy milk. Mirror Link achieves transfer rates exceeding 16.7Mb per second, and is suited to storing large documents that take up a lot of disk space and need to be quickly accessed by multiple users. Upgrades are priced at $200, and the complete Mirror Link system, which contains a 1.03Gb Toshiba Corp 2.5 inch drive costs $400.
