mini hard drive

Anyone used on of these? Seems uncommonly good value. Perhaps the answer to all those storage on the road problems?

Good find Matt!

I use the hard drive only version of these for backing up my laptop on the road, and they work great - the addition of the card reader is brilliant.

Yep, thats along the lines I was thinking, I know hard drives can crash out so a back ups a must. I just lost a whole bunch of pix from my work. Luckily I'd already sent copies to the clients but its annoying not having my own copies. Also a little drive like this you can keep in a pocket of you jacket while you leave your laptop in your hotel etc. Reckon I'm definately gonna buy one!

Bought one. Seems good. Will report back upon return from Xmas trip to Morocco to advise how it worked in anger.
Cheers

Used the above mentioned device in Morocco for 2 weeks over Christmas/New Year. Did about 6 or 7 backups of various CFcards. All worked fine.

I tried to make sure it was plugged into mains when doing data transfer, although once I had no electricity in hut in mountains and it worked fine without. Also have a 12v cigarette lighter adapter for it. No used so far.

Anyone know where to get one of these in the USA? I searched on the web, but only found retailers on the wrong side of the pond.
