The XS-DriveSmart 2300 portable photo storage device comes with a 60GB hard drive and a multi-format memory card reader, which means you don’t have to carry a laptop around with you on vacation in order to free up memory cards on the go. Sure you could buy a bunch of memory cards for your camera, but this is actually a more elegant solution, n’est pas? You can transfer 1 GB of images in about 4 minutes, which is pretty fast too. The rechargeable battery lasts 2 hours, and the LED readout lets you know how much hard disk space you’ve got left. £95.99.
Basically, you only need a single memory card on any outing. Since the digital photo storage unit is small – it really is a portable photo storage unit – you can easily carry the photo storage unit in your pocket or camera pack. Whenever your memory card is full, you can save the contents of the memory card on the digital photo storage drive, clear the memory card, and resume taking photos. Since the transfer of data from the memory card to the photo storage unit is fast and easy to use you can be operative before your coffee is even cold.
