Product Description

With newer hard drive supporting larger than 2TB requiring GPT partition, Windows XP users were left behind since XP does not support GPT. However, our XP Compliant models adds support for the MBR partition thus allowing XP users to break the 2TB barrier while maintaining compatibility with all other OS. Using metal alloy case, heat is easily dissipated and with less plastic used, more recyclable and eco friendly too. It also include built-in 2-port USB hub so that you can connect 2 USB devices through the drive freeing up your USB ports.
