EZQuest has announced that it is in the process of finalizing its new line of Thunder FireWire 400 and 800 external hard drives. “Over the last 18 months, EZQuest has worked closely with professionals in the non-linear video-editing, computer-animation, pro audio and game-development markets — as well as home users — to determine the current and future storage needs in these markets. As a result, the new Thunder drives will more than meet the storage demands of the major video-editing and 3D animation applications,” notes the company. “Thunder drives will be less than half the size of competitive drives and will include syncing software.” The first product will be announced in July, with delivery planned in August.
