FastTrak(R) S150 TX2 Serial ATA RAID Controller Brings Enhanced Performance and Data Protection Capabilities to Home Office PCs

MILPITAS, Calif., July 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Promise Technology, Inc., the originator and leader of ATA RAID data protection and storage solutions, announced today that its FastTrak S150 TX2 Serial ATA (SATA) RAID 0/1 controller is now available as a configure-to-order (CTO) option for customers purchasing Compaq Presario 8000T Series PCs. With the addition of the FastTrak S150 TX2 RAID controller option, Compaq Presario users can now take advantage of a RAID solution for improved performance or data protection, an increasingly popular after-market enhancement for students, gamers, graphic designers, and small office environments.

The Compaq Presario 8000T PC is targeted for home and home office consumers and offers a top-of-the-line system with excellent performance. By combining the Compaq Presario 8000T with the Promise SATA RAID controller card with either two 80GB or 120GB SATA disk drives, users have access to highly cost-effective RAID solutions. Users can choose RAID 0 for increased performance and storage capacity for large graphics and rich media files such as videos, photos, MP3 and games; or RAID 1 for exceptionally reliable data protection against a single drive failure.

"By selecting Promise's popular RAID controllers, HP is providing a leading-edge option for its customers," said Sam Sirisena, vice president of sales and marketing worldwide, Promise Technology, Inc. "The Compaq Presario family is a very popular line of desktop systems, and we are confident that our Serial ATA RAID solution will help reinforce the benefits of purchasing from HP. Today, when it comes to PCs, it is all about how to provide enhanced performance and methods of protecting users' valuable data."

"HP strives to provide its customers with the best possible computer products and applications in the marketplace," said Mark Sanchez, vice president of HP's North America Consumer Computing Business. "The Serial ATA RAID upgrade option offers Presario buyers an advanced storage solution that is ideal for desktop computer applications."

To promote this upgrade option, HP is offering for a limited time an introductory special offer for the 8000T Series PCs. When purchasing the RAID option, customers receive an upgrade from two 80 GB hard drives to two 120 GB hard drives at no additional charge.
