FirmTek, LLC, a pioneer and leader in Serial ATA (SATA) storage solutions for Windows and Macintosh platforms, today announced that Macworld Magazine's United Kingdom edition selected the SeriTek/2eEN4 as the best storage solution among all evaluated during the year 2006. Macworld Magazine's awards have become the primary recognition event in the Macintosh developer community, and FirmTek surpassed many large and well-known brands to attain this award. Honorees are profiled online now at http://www.macworld.co.uk/awards/index.cfm?mas=winners, and Macworld will include a feature in print in their next issue.

Macworld UK's Product of the Year Awards recognizes outstanding advances in products that are compatible with Apple's Macintosh computer. Categories this year included platforms, peripherals and software products, as well as outstanding ISPs and resellers. Nominees were
screened from products recommended by editors, contributors and readers of the publication. This year's prestigious event was held at The Gibson Hall in London, England on June 28, 2007.

"The FirmTek team is thrilled to receive this award from one of the Macintosh industry's most influential publications," said Chi Kim Stanford, FirmTek's president. "We have spent years committed to delivering Macintosh solutions that are exciting, successful and competitive. This award is a significant confirmation that our efforts are on target, and we want to thank everyone involved, especially the editors and readers of Macworld UK."

The SeriTek/2eEN4 four-bay hot-swap enclosure features the latest Serial ATA storage technologies and delivers unprecedented performance with cross-platform Macintosh and PC support. Utilizing an innovative backplane design with no internal cabling, the SeriTek/2eEN4 supports all Serial ATA hard drives including the newest drives with 3.0Gbps transfer rates as well as original 1.5Gbps Serial ATA hard drives.

Among the benefits pioneered by FirmTek, and found in all FirmTek's latest products, is the hot-swapping of drives; the ability to switch out a drive from the enclosure without powering down the computer. This provides a new level of flexibility and security, as well as virtually unlimited capacity while working on a project. This makes the SeriTek/2eEN4 ideal for many of the most demanding storage applications on any platform, including direct streaming of digital video and
archiving of digital photography, music and other creative media files. For more information on the SeriTek/2eEN4, visit http://www.firmtek.com/seritek/seritek-2eEN4.
