Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Thu, March 20 2003 | 10:17AM | PermaLink Feedback?
Hmm... USB drives are pretty popular today. Mikhailtech checks out the TX50 64MB USB Drive...

One thing that I really respect (because it's so uncommon nowadays) is the honest marketing on the package. Unlike some drives stating outrageous numbers in megabits, a term that is synonymous with megabytes to the average user, IDO claims 1000k/s for read and 920k/s for write, which is in the range that most USB1.1 drives fall under (USB2.0 parts are a rarity, but available nonetheless). Any Microsoft OS past Win98 as well as MAC OS9.0 and Linux 2.4 doesn't require drivers, making this a plug and play disk, one of biggest reasons for the device's success.

Then OCAddiction looks at the Firefly USBee Flash drive.

The prices of USB flash drives are relatively low nowadays. For users who need a method of transferring files between computers besides using the internet or CD-Rs, flash drives are a very attractive and practical solution. They can also be "cool" to show off to computer illiterate coworkers who have never seen such things before. For whatever reason you think you might need one of these drives, they are cheap now and probably will continue to get cheaper to some degree as flash memory prices fall.
