SlimEx Onyx 40GB USB Hard Drive
The latest SlimEx Onyx USB hard drive from Soyo seems like a perfect data transfer medium for users on-the-go. It weighs less than 3 oz. and is small enough to almost fit into your wallet (Dimension: 3.9" x 2.4" x 0.4"). The Onyx is USB 2.0 compatible and claims transfer speeds up to 20 times higher than what you would obtain with a standard USB 1.1 connection.
Some desirable features that catch attention are :
• Suitable for rugged use as it is housed in a “heavy-duty” magnesium alloy casing
• No download cable or PCMCIA card required
• No drivers needed for Windows ME/2000/XP
• Mac compatible
The Onyx is available for $175 at Meritline.com. The package includes the USB cable and installation CD.
