Very small but big storage

by Jonmichaelriley@bellsouth.net on 3/24/2008

This slick little drive is the exact size of my old Daytimer, if you remember those. For its capacity, the case is tiny. It is truly a plug n' play drive. I'm on Macs and it seems to work fine without any rigamarole. The only glitch is that from my 12" G4 laptop, the WD drive seems to work slower (write speed) than from my dual processor G5. I bought this drive specifically to store digital files from my camera on a two-week shoot in Ireland. That I can slip it into a jacket pocket is a wonderful plus!!!
