August 19, 2014



Union City, CA (PRWEB) August 19, 2014

FirmTek, LLC, the world's leading developer of Serial ATA solutions for Apple Macintosh and PC systems, today is announcing and shipping the dLite with a limited time introductory price of $39.95 (MSRP $59.95). The dLite USB 3.0 enclosure incorporates the latest technology to deliver unprecedented 440MB/sec SSD transfer speed with cross-platform PC and Macintosh compatibility. Perfect for solid state drives (SSD), 2.5" Serial ATA (SATA) hard drives, and 2.5" solid state hybrid drives (SSHD), this new ultra-affordable, ultra-light, Mac OS X bootable, bus-powered SuperSpeed USB 3.0 enclosure offers a less costly option than its Thunderbolt cousins, while freeing up your Thunderbolt ports for other duties.

Performance up to 440MB/sec with a sSingle SSD

The dLite was created to provide 2.5" storage devices with blazing fast 5Gb bandwidth, amazingly simple disk mounting and ultra-quiet operation. The small ultra-light, yet rugged, dLite can be integrated as a portable on-the-go 2.5" enclosure, or as a space-saving high performance 2.5" desktop drive station. The unique dLite drive mounting design supports standard 2.5-inch 9.5mm height devices along with 7mm sizes.

Ultra-light Portability

The dLite silver aluminum chassis weighs in at only 2.0 ounces without a drive. Add a 2.8 ounce SSD or a 4 ounce standard 2.5" rotational hard disk to create your very own lightweight storage-on-the-go package. Its small footprint of 4.78 x 2.96 x 0.5" fits just about anywhere! The small size allows the drive to be carried in a shirt or pants pocket and it easily fits in the palm of your hand. The dLite features an attractive design made from aluminum to keep weight at a minimum while maintaining structural rigidity. "Protect and transport your high performance SSD in an incredibility small, high performance case," said Chi Kim Stanford, Vice President of Business Development. "The high quality, detailed construction of the dLite provides the same high performance as our popular miniSwap/U3 in a surprisingly lightweight package."

Instant Data Access

The dLite is compatible with virtually every computer with USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 ports. With USB 3.0, the dLite supports data transfer rates of up to 500MBytes/sec or 5Gbits/sec. Loading a 2.5-inch hard disk or SSD is as easy as removing the top cover, inserting a bare drive and replacing the cover, that's it! The dLite enclosure is designed to excel with audio/video editing, computer animation, digital photography, portable computing, storage expansion, backup and any application where external, flexible high performance data storage is desirable. FirmTek customers who enjoy the power and portability of SSD will truly appreciate the dLite.
