Fabrik Ships New SimpleTech SimpleDrive Solutions

Fabrik is shipping a new desktop family of SimpleTech SimpleDrive external storage and backup solutions designed by Pininfarina. The SimpleDrive desktop family leverages the success of the company's portable SimpleDrive solutions launched last year, also designed by Pininfarina. The new SimpleDrive desktop solution provides easy add-on storage and effortless backup and restore capabilities making it painless to manage your personal or professional content. With its high-speed USB 2.0 interface, setup is a snap and data transfer rates are fast and reliable. They come preloaded with One-Click backup software so you can protect selected files or the entire content stored on your computer with a single click, or automatically, providing the peace of mind in knowing that your digital world is safe and protected.

The included software provides step-by-step wizards for hassle-free file restoring, and makes it simple to create and burn CDs and DVDs to take your music, photos, videos or files with you on the road. A built-in light ring acts as a capacity meter for quick viewing of disk space utilization.

Extending consumer value, all SimpleDrive desktop purchases include a free 2GB myfabrik.com online account to store, organize, embed and share your personal or professional content online. With the myfabrik.com service, you have the freedom to share multimedia content and other digital files with individuals or groups either privately via email or publicly via your own "easy-to-create" personal Web page. You can also mash-up different file types to create slideshows and media players; quickly post content to sites such as eBay via links; or embed myfabrik widgets into blogs and social networking sites to promote easy content sharing online. Because the service is Web-based, you can easily access your photos, video, music and other files from any Internet connection anytime, anywhere.

The SimpleDrive desktop family's slim form factor and rich colors add elegance and style to the home or office, while addressing the growing need for storing, protecting and sharing digital media content. Mac and PC compatible, they're designed for quiet operation and come in a variety of colors and capacities including fire red (160GB), pearl white (250GB), sapphire (320GB), onyx (500GB) and charcoal gray (750GB and 1TB). Shipments of SimpleDrive desktop solutions began shipping to major retailers, distributors and online stores last week. Additional models with a combo USB 2.0 and FireWire 400 interface will begin shipping in May.
