250GB Disk Mini
Formac has bumped up the capacity of its flagship portable hard drive, the Disk Mini. Now offering 250GB of capacity (80GB, 120GB and 160GB versions are also available), the drive is bus-powered and includes a shock absorption system designed to protect internals in the case of a fall or other impact. All capacities use a 5,400rpm drive mechanism that Formac claims can transfer data at up to 15MB per second over USB 2.0. The units ship with a 2-year warranty. Prices range from £60 (about $120) for the 80GB model to £95 (about $190) for the 250GB version.
