Neowin Review : Seagate 5Gb Pocket Hard Drive

In the second part of our look at some of the portable gear Seagate are offering currently, we've taken a look at the company's smaller option for users : a 5 GB, pocket hard drive.

    "USB: it's everywhere. Like a plague amongst motherboard designers, the USB socket has become ubiquitous with the modern day computer. Asides from devices like printers and mice, USB devices range from the quirky to the rather useful. Arguably one of the most useful groups of devices on the market today is the portable USB drive.

    High speed, reliable and small, they've virtually killed the floppy disk drive giving computer users a better way to store and transfer their files. In a world of bulging PowerPoint presentations and growing media libraries, the question of storage on the go is one that has hit most of us. Perhaps, we've found an answer."

After the initial amazement that they could pack in 5 GB's worth of hard drive into such a small space, we looked deeper into an exceptionally well designed portable device. For the full review, follow the link below.
