SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- At this week's Macworld Expo, WiebeTech announced the UltraGB+, a bus powered 3.5" drive enclosure that allows one to bring large amounts of data on the road (when using FireWire) without requiring a separate power adapter. The drives are all 7200 RPM and offer 8MB of cache.

The UltraGB+ is available in either FireWire 400 or FireWire 800 versions, and either 120GB or 160GB capacity. The UltraGB+ also has a USB 2.0 port, and sports a global 100-240V power supply, for those situations where your computer doesn't or can't provide enough power on the FireWire bus, or you'd like to use USB 2.0.
