The 3-in-1 Hard Drive
The new mobile hard drive reads nine separate formats of memory cards — including MS duo pro, SD (Secure Digital) Card and Compact Flash Card types I/II — via an integrated card reader on the front panel. This allows data to be transferred quickly and easily to the maxi t.uch or the PC without the need to install special software.

The maxi t.uch is the ideal solution for performing daily backups and transporting or exchanging data. The backup software included in the deliverables allows data to be backed up automatically with a simple click of a button.
The maxi t.uch features a silver-tone front panel, which houses the card reader and USB ports, as well as a cool, vertical blue LED on/off light. With physical space on a desktop at premium, the drive can be placed horizontally on the desktop or vertically (with included feet) for added flexibility. Each drive is shipped with a USB 2.0 cable, power supply (100V — 240V), software CD, operating instructions, and other accessories.

Szmigiel is also proud of TrekStor’s “green” approach to packaging. All TrekStor products come in compact, efficient packaging, which not only cuts back on landfill waste, but reduces fuel and shipping costs as well. “Less bulky packaging, means more boxes on the boat.
