If there’s anyone out there reading this, who hasn’t yet moved to storing their music and photo libraries on external hard drives, I recommend you do so as soon as possible. I recently transferred most of my data to one, and the extra speed I’ve received after departing with 90GB of photos and music is amazing.
Fujitsu is here to save the day with what they’ve dubbed the world’s largest capacity external mobile hard drive. Obviously you can get larger capacities, like Hypertec’s 1TB Firestorm, but that’s more a desktop drive than mobile drive.
Measuring 2.5″, it’s available in 120GB, 160GB, 200GB, 250GB and 300GB of storage to play with, and features a password lock tool option to ensure your hi-res nekkid pics are seen by you, and you only. It’ll give you transfer speeds of 60MB per second, and is connected to your PC by a bus-powered USB 2.0 interface. The two lower capacities are € 89 and € 119 each, available now, with the 200GB and 250GB models are available end of November for € 150 and €175, and that whopping 300GB unit can be bought end of October for € 199.
