The world's smallest external hard drive?


We’ve already covered Seagate’s ultra-small 12GB internal drive for mobiles today, but if you’re in the market for something that’s both small and portable, they don’t come any smaller than Elecom’s MF-DU204G, claimed to be the world’s smallest external hard drive.

Despite its 6.8 x 3 x 1.3cm size and 44g weight, it still has a 4GB capacity through the use of a bus-powered 0.85in HDD. It comes with its own integrated USB connector, but is bundled with a USB extender cable should the drive prove too "large" and block other ports.

The drive comes with USB Disk Pro to password protect your drive and is available in both metallic blue and silver. It will sell for around ¥26,800 (£131).
