VST Technologies Adds Three New Higher Capacity FireWire Drives

New FireWire Drives Offer Even More Capacity, Modularity, True Portability
And FireWire Connectivity Across Platforms.

ACTON, Mass., May 10 /PRNewswire/ -- VST Technologies, Inc. today
announced new 8, 10 and 14 Gigabyte (GB) FireWire(R) Drive capacities
less than two weeks after initial shipments of its 2, 4 and 6
Gigabyte (GB) 1394 compliant drives. The new 8GB, 10GB and 14GB
FireWire drives address users demands for larger capacities for a
variety of digital video, audio and multimedia applications, while
maintaining true portability and a very small form factor.

VST's new FireWire Hard Drives are the first IEEE 1394 compliant
drives to take full advantage of FireWire equipped CPUs. In January,
Apple(R) Computer began shipping FireWire as a key feature built-in
to every Power Macintosh G3 series professional desktop computer. VST
also expects Microsoft Windows 98 compatibility within the next few
months.

The new products announced this week include the VST FireWire Hard
Drives in 8, 10 and 14 Gigabyte sizes, combining greater capacity
with hot-plug/unplug and blazing transfer speeds, up to 14 MB/sec --
fast enough for DV record and playback. The larger capacity drives
announced this week require no AC power adapter. Simply cable the
drive and computer together and the volume mounts automatically --
ready for high speed file transfers.

"VST's ultra compact FireWire drives combine the best aspects of
portability, modularity and FireWire connectivity to offer the most
exciting high performance storage product the industry has seen yet,"
said Vincent Fedele, Chairman and Founder of VST Technologies.
Introduction of the VST FireWire drives marks the company's first
offering of desktop peripherals devices, and one that is completely
platform independent.

Introduction of the VST FireWire drives also includes the industry's
first FireWire Formatting utility, VST Format, which is included with
every VST drive. VST Format allows multiple partitions, supports both
standard and Extended MacOS partitions, and also provides a quick
scan function allowing the user to see, mount and initialize any VST
FireWire drive on the 1394 bus.
