Nomai 540
Pocket Full of Megabytes

Instead of carrying stacks of paperwork in your briefcase, put them in your pocket. The pocketsized Nomai 540 removable hard drive provides unlimited storage expandability using high-capacity 540MB disks.

Designed for portability, the external Nomai 540 weighs less than 2 pounds and measures 1.25 by 4.25 by 7 inches. Available in parallel (external only) or SCSI (internal or external) interfaces, it has a 10ms seek time, a 5.3MBps transfer rate and a mean time of 250,000 hours between failures.

The drive accepts 540MB Nomai disks and 270MB SyQuest-compatible cartridges. Its backward compatibility allows multimedia professionals to upgrade a SyQuest hard drive to a faster, higher-capacity removable storage drive and still keep their old disks.

Nomai USA includes a 540MB cartridge with a five-year warranty; the drive itself has a two-year warranty.

Disk, $59; internal drive with SCSI card, $299; external drive with parallel or SCSI connection, $359
