The heart of the ALU GUARD model variants is the high-speed chip sets, which guarantee extremely fast data transfer (3GB SATA II).

The dimensions of the 3.5" ALU GUARD models are 205 x 129 x 41 mm (LxWxH). The model variants for IDE hard disks are fitted externally with a USB 2.0 connector and with the Cypress CY7C68300C-56PVXC(AT2-LP) chip set. The 3.5" SATA variant comes with a JMicron-JM20336 chip set. Discreet blue status LEDs indicate hard disk activity on all models.
