Commodore Hard Disk Drive

A new ten-megabyte hard disk drive for the Commodore 64 and 128 has been introduced by Progressive Peripherals & Software. Device 9-"The Vault" emulates the 1541 disk drive and plugs directly into the serial port of the 64 or 128; no interface is required. It can also be daisy-chained to your printer using one of two serial ports.

"The Vault" provides complete, automatic protection of data by inserting "shields" between the disk and heads when the computer is turned off and by retracting the carriage to the edge of the disk. You can also DIP switch-select four device numbers.

The hard disk drive is 3.5 inches high X 10 inches wide X 15.5 inches long. It has a built-in fan, an external drive enclosure with power supply, an AC power cord, and fuse. It comes with a five-year limited warranty and a one-year warranty on the disk. A manual is included.

Suggested retail price for Device 9-"The Vault" is $899.95.
