I see Steve's review. Thanks Steve. This sounds like the alternative for carrying that laptop to download pics.

Finally Computer Geeks has the X drive back in stock and for $87. I hope to receive mine tomorrow. Check Steve's reviews and there is a direct link to computer geeks.

Receive the X Drive and it is really an amazing storage device. Very compact and you need a low profile laptop hard drive to install in the X drive.

Check out this forum and read the fragmentation issue with the x-drive so you can understand the problem. I think its been fixed but you may have to upgrade the firmware.

type in xdrive

overall I think its a great device. I have no need yet, but hopefully the xdrive II will be out and affordable before I go on my next vacation,

there is some talk about the Xdrive II in the above forum also.
