My, how things have changed! 8x8 DVD Rewriters are swiftly becoming the de facto optical storage medium, largely because prices continue to drop like a stone.

I have been looking into getting a USB thumb drive recently so I can carry some data around with me. But of course, it can't be too small with MS Service Packs the size that they are. But sometimes it would be nice to be able to move around A LOT of data. An external, portable hard disk drive is such a way. This review from Legion Hardware fits that bill. Fast, clean, and easy to setup and plug in is what Im always looking for.
