New Toy : Tiny But Mighty!

The old skool 6GB being zero formatted
This thing is tiny! Fits my palm!
Everything is cool except that it's in kinky red!

Presenting my new toy! It’s a superlightweight USB2.0-based external hard drive casing which fits 2.5″ drives. It’s so light and small, it can almost fly doods! Heh. I stumbled upon this on sale on Lelong and thought I’d buy it. It only costs RM33 inclusive of delivery. I plugged in a discarded notebook IBM Travelstar 6GB drive into it. Works like a charm. Had it zero-ed just to make sure.

I ordered another 2 Firewire/USB 2.0 based casings for bigger backup storage. Should be arriving today. Will post pics and a report later. I am looking to purchase a Toshiba 80GB 2.5″ 5400rpm drive, with a whopping 16MB cache. Will have that to replace my current 4200rpm slowpoke on my Powerbook, then swap the old 60GB one into one of my external casings.

See ya soon!

    Vernon,

    There has been issues with swapping ur PB HD for a higher RPM one. Did that to my PB once and it ruined the HD. My advice is… DON’T! 😉

    ganaeshd,

    Not the drive, just the casing bro. Hard drives are sold separately. Still a bloody good deal for the casing though. Nifty indeed 😉
