Priced at $129.00, the Monstor Drives will begin shipping on November 1st. "The beauty of digital data is that it is both highly mobile and an excellent medium for archiving in that it does not degrade," explains Nick Payzant, CEO of US Modular.

Our mission is to offer higher density storage in smaller form factors and at better consumer price-points.
