Axxen portable hard drives
Korean company Axxen has released a series of new portable hard drives which come with their own memory card readers. The A-1800, A-2500, and A-3500 read several different card formats, including CF, SD, xD, MMC and Memory Sticks. Photographers will appreciate the "one-touch backup" option, which instantly begins copying the contents of a card (or another hard drive, via USB 2.0) at the push of a button. Capacities on the drives range from 20GB up to 450GB on the A-3500. Pricing was unavailable at press time, but Axxen is selling the drives from its Axxen Mall website.
