Maxtor OneTouch III USB 2.0/FireWire Review

Storage is more affordable now than it ever has been and with consumers today, seeking more compact, mobile devices, removable storage drives are providing that essential portability.  Whether you just need a little more elbow room for your files or want to backup your entire system, there's a storage device that will give you the extra space you need.

Maxtor has been offering external hard disk drive-based storage solutions for several years and now, with its popular OneTouch line of backup and storage devices, is leading the way' at least in my book.

Maxtor OneTouch III USB 2.0/FireWire unit


The Maxtor OneTouch III is the newest member in the Maxtor storage solution family, and was introduced at CES 2006.  The device is offered both in a USB 2.0 as well as a USB 2.0/FireWire 400 and FireWire 800.  The OneTouch III drives are available for both Macintosh and Windows version and the 1TB Maxtor OneTouch III Turbo Edition, offers RAID 0/RAID 1 capabilities.

These devices are very easy to use and are very well designed, robust and packaged with the most recent release of Maxtor One Touch software.  Maxtor has one of the easiest installations that I have come across.  This plug and play storage device creates historical backups, with full system and file restore, to a user-specified point in time, data synchronization between computers, has dual interface for USB/FireWire.  Maxtor always keeps the things simple with it's wizard interface allowing users to easily configure the product for maximum performance.

With it's capacity of 500 Gb, running at 7200 rpm, there is a plenty room to store your files, photos, videos, graphics files, and music.
The Maxtor DriveLock™ is it's technology to protect the contents of the drive in case of loss or unauthorized use.

Featuring a simple user interface for drive management, security and automatic backup, the drive can also perform data synchronization between two or more computers.

As the need to digitally file the important things in our lives, from family photos and medical documents to address books and sensitive work data increase, we inevitably need more room to store it.  With the new and improved removable storage devices we can now, not only store the data without cluttering up our computers, but we can take the information wherever we go.
