In your pocket? :whistling:

As it says HDD- this is a spinning hard drive (micro disk drive) and not the usual type of USB memory drive which is solid state (no moving parts unless it has a bit to shove the connector in and out).

It wont take the abuse solid state ones will - but is a good backup device if you are keeping it in a friendly environment. But even being fragile - at 150p per reusable gig its a good value.

Its temping to get one to see if it works with a USB cable to use with my car radio which has a USB input for MP3 - and it can sit int the covered part of the centre console.

[SIZE="3"]The people who carries a 3.5" HDD instead of a tiny USB stick normally travels around with this as size does not matter then.[/SIZE]http://direct.tesco.com/pi/List/9/SS07200-3669TPS102942.jpg

Would much rather have a solid state drive for the reliability.

Or a much larger drive for about £50 you can get 160gb. Much better bang for buck.

I beg to differ...
there is market for all products, this is obviously for those who want to slip this in their suit pocket or wallet...
and be able to connect it without dragging a usb cable as well or a power cable (eeeek!!!) on any pc or mac.

tru for the reliability factor though!

Both items that I mentioned would fit in your wallet/pocket. One has no usb cable, the other has one about 5cm in length. So I was correct on all fronts thankyou.

A good deal and one I'd love to own!

At what point would it not just be easier to use your mp3 player?

When the ipod touches aint a mass storage device.

MP3 players are whack :)

Because an mp3 player is presumably full of music. Mine is anyway.

well voted hot from me, this used to be £29.99

Great addition to the Asus EEE

[SIZE="3"]can some one report the read and write speed for this? Is it like 1 Mbytes/s so it takes 3.3 hrs to fill up?![/SIZE] However it is a great deal for lots of GB as capacity.
#16
Hmmm, given that you can get an 8GB solid state drive for a similar price, it's simply not worth opting for this just to gain 4GB.

Would either go for a flash based memory stick, or a 2.5" external (no power required, or USB cable for some of them as they're attached).

This one tries to be the jack of all trades, but ends up being king of none.

Check the reviews on the play.com.

Someone on there put the write speed. However, this might not be 100% reliable

well the thread title doesnt say solid state

It just says a 12gb hard drive, thank you.


Apt name you have there...

Talk a lot of it, I guess.

If you want to be pedantic, thread also says portable. Lugging around a brick, with another brick to power it, and another cable, isn't portable.
#21
Seriously tempted!!

Is it going to be very fragile though?

#23
I had a 4Gb version of this and it lasted for hardly any time before it stopped being recognised. The flip out usb bit is a pain as well as you have to fight to get it out.
#24
Is this Vista compatable?

Not hot imo. Solid state is the way to go on pocked sized discs.

This is belting! To say this isn't hot because it isn't solid state is frankly odd! If Asda reduced their apples to 1p would you say it was a bad deal because you prefer oranges?

Alright it might not be indestructable but its a fair size for a good price and transfer rates will be way above solid state.


Voted hot!

The bloke who paid £32 extra for a 500GB, he is the bloke in the picture. The 500GB disk is inside that PC! Seriously if the 12GB disk can write about 8 mbytes/s then this is a super bargain for 12GB! But unfortunately my Dane Elec 8 GB flash stick is just above to arrive any day from 7dayshop for £18 and this one claims to be fast at 173x read so I guess the write is about 8 ~10Mbytes/s. I shall report it here when I received it.

Oh, and welcome to HUKD Squirrel!

A good deal and one I'd love to own!

A person told me recently that it may be possible for you to own one. Apparently you have to do something called 'purchasing'. I've heard you can do this by clicking through tot he website and using your debit/credit card.

Don't trust me on that one though, I may have been misinformed.

Hmmm....your analogy doesnt make sense. SSD is much better in pretty much all respects - SSD is not an alternative in this respect, it is a technically superior replacement, so actually it should be "if Asda was selling **** apples at 1p would you say its a bad deal because you can get better apples". However, I agree that because it isnt SSD doesnt rule it out as a hot deal. However, the fact it tries to be portable but requires external power, does IMO.

A time machine. However I'd look out for postage stamp size HVD's in the future not hdds

So why doesn't everyone buy Mac's based on your assumption?

Obviously superior, but a lil bit more pricey.

EDIT: Bought a white one, and voted hot! will do nicely as a backup for all those Family Guy/American Dad episodes!

Thanks OP
#35
Does anyone know where I can find more images of this drive, or at least some technical specs giving the size dimensions.

Also does the usb port flip out and have some sort of extension wire? I dont feel too comfortable with that drive sticking out of a usb port with no extra lag of wire. At least with flash drives/usb pen drives the width/size of the drive is just slightly bigger than the usb connector so no risk of weighing down the usb port.
#36
1 of the reviews says it comes with usb cable as well
#37
oh i am so gutted. I got this when it was £30.
Transfer rates : 9mb/s write 8 mb/s read.
HOT HOT HOT. I suspect this is a clearance price. Get it while it's there
#38
yes, it comes with a cable, pouch and little alphabet stickers to name your drive. It's very small and compact. measures about 2 inches long by 1 inch wide by 6mm thick
#39
where can you get the 500gb for £32 from?
