NewerTech has lots and lots of storage solutions and other gear that help computer users keep their data safe and available. The company has unveiled a new storage device called the Guardian Maximus mini. The mini sports a quad interface making for flexible connectivity options.

Those four interfaces include FireWire 800/400, USB 2.0, and eSATA. The mini supports RAID 1 and RAID 0 and is designed for live activity backups and data redundancy on a Mac or PC. The mini can be fitted with up to 1.5TB of storage and has data transfer speeds of up to 300MB/s. The device can also be had in a version with SSDs inside rather than HDDs.

The small device measures 5.2" x 3.5" x 2.1" making it very small and it only weighs 1.5 pounds. That small size makes this one of the only portable RAID solutions around. The mini with a pair of 500GB HDDs is $249.99, crank that up to a pair of 750GB solutions and the price goes to $399.99. Those wanting SSDs can get a pair of 200GB SSDs for $1349.99 or a pair of 400GB SSDs for $3299.99.
