I’ve been looking for a good, reliable, sturdy, affordable portable storage device for my wife to carry around.Ã‚Â She has some USB memory sticks, but more storage is always good, right?Ã‚Â I think Plextor is looking like a worthy contender for a storage provider in this realm.Ã‚Â Check out these shock-proof external hard drives.Ã‚Â Available in 80 and 120 Gig for $169 and $260 respectively.Ã‚Â I’m seriously considering picking up one of the larger capacity drives at that price.
The external PX-SP hard drives, said Plextor, make use of a specially designed silicon jacket bumper that reportedly helps keep the drive from crashing if it is dropped. The storage device, which measures 3.3Ã¢â‚¬Â x 0.7Ã¢â‚¬Â x 5.5Ã¢â‚¬Â and weighs less than eight ounces, supports USB 2.0 for a maximum data transfer rate of 480Mbps. The PX-SP comes bundled with a USB cable, the silicon jacket and a quick start guide.
