8GB USB Microdrive

tone8.jpgThumb drives can store up to a couple gigabytes of data in a device the size of, well, your thumb. The only downside is that as you get past the gigabyte mark, thumb drives become very expensive.

Carrying around a hard drive doesn’t sound that great, but the T.One isn’t your regular hard drive, it fits in your pocket.

The T.One is a portable hard drive with 8 gigabytes of storage, and connects to your computer via USB 2.0, but is also compatabile with USB 1.1 (for the poor people who still have that). It’s compatabile with Windows, Mac, and Linux.

The drive itself is only 1″, and is contained in a secure plastic box. There is also a blue LED on the box which denotes power and blinks when the disk is active.

The drive is 3200 RPM (slower than your average desktop/notebook drive), has an 8.8 MB/sec transfer rate, weighs 1.7 ounces, and measures 47 MM wide and 16 MM high. That’s about 2 inches wide, and a little over one half inch high.

If you’ve got a good amount of files/photos/videos you want to carry around with you, but still need portability, the T.One is an excellent choice. Grab yours from ThinkGeek for $130.
