This small external hard drive is very similar to some of the portable flash/pen drives that are going around at the moment. When I bought it a couple of years ago I was very impressed with what it could do making it easy to take files back and forth no matter where I went on a day to day basis. At the moment this external hard drive is selling for an average of £30 to £35 which isn't too bad.
Power ********** Like some of the USB flash drives that going around at the moment this external hard drive can draw power directly from the USB that is been used to transfer data back and forth which means there is no need for any additional power cables etc that you would expect with some devices.
Design ********** The beauty about this external hard drive is that is starts off as a square/rectangular shaped device which is able to fit easily into any pocket or bag. When you want to use it all that the user needs to do is open it up to allow the USB port to come out so that it can be inserted into the USB on a PC. If for any reason the USB is at an odd angle and there is not enough room to fit the device into USB port a USB cable comes included in the package so essentially the hard drive could sit on a desk while it is attached by a cable to a PC however this can be optional.
I found it to be reasonably stylish being so small and easy to carry around as can be seen from the dimensions below. Just by thinking but it 4.8cm in width, 4.4cm in depth and 1.4cm in height is nothing compared to some of the latest external hard drives that are being used today because some of the latest ones can be extremely large however from the gain in physical size you gain capacity from the device.
Once again this like some of the flash drives that are going around at the moment this hard drive is also plug and play with most operating systems however encase it doesn't install automatically a driver is included in the package but I haven't really had to use this very often at all unless your using an old operating system like Windows 98 which was well before this time of hard drive or portable device.
Specifications ***************** Capacity - 4GB Interface - USB 2.0 OS Required - Apple MacOS X 10.2.4 or later, Microsoft Windows 98SE/2000/ME/XP/VISTA System Requirements - 64MB RAM
Conclusion ************** I would definitely recommend this external hard drive to anyone that need to carry files around with them for things like work purposes. If you're a student and looking for a portable device to carry around with you for work then this external hard drive could be just what your looking for.
Thanks for reading :)
