Other World Computing (OWC) has updated its Neptune “Value Done Right” FireWire line for the second time in three months, this time adding a 400GB 7200RPM model and lowering prices on other models by as much as eight percent. The new pricing is:

  • 80GB 7200 RPM with 2 Megabytes (MB) data buffer $104.99
  • 160GB 7200 RPM with 8MB data buffer $139.99
  • 200GB 7200 RPM with 8MB data buffer $164.99

  • 320GB 7200 RPM with 8MB data buffer $219.99
  • 400GB 7200RPM with 8MB data buffer $299.99

The drives ship with all FireWire cables, Intech HD SpeedTools and EMC/Dantz Retrospect Backup, and are supported by a one-year OWC warranty. Each one measures 1.5” X 9” X 5.5” and weighs less than three pounds. Don’t let the small package fool you. These drives can handle all your audio/video, backup or general storage needs.

“The market has been favorable for us and we went to pass along those savings to our customers,” said Larry O’Connor. “We also strive to keep up with the needs of our customers which is why we’re always adding more options to this and all our lines of drives.”
