   Here is a quick test run using my test rig:

  • P3 800Mhz Slot 1
  • 768 Megs of Ram
  • Sound Blaster Audigy Xgamer (firewire port being used off the Audigy).
  • Windows 2000 Service Pack 3
  • MPD drive (40Gig, 4200 IBM Travelstar 2.5" 9.5mm)
  • Generic Firewire Drive (Maxtor 45Gig, 5400 rpm 3.5" drive)

    Testing software used was Sisoft Sandra Standard. Drive H: is the generic and drive I: is the MPD.



   With the simple benchmark, it shows that the MPD drive is a tad behind the generic branded version tested here.  This is caused by the 4200rpm hard drive model that is used in the MPD.  With that in mind, you will have to decide whether portability or speed is more important to you.

  Overall, the unit is easy to use and quite portable.  With the unit fully charged. I left the MPD run for about 6-7 hours, no problems so far. Battery life is said to be 10+ hours.  An addition to this unit that would have been nice is a battery life indicator.  There is no indicator to let you know how much battery life is left, which makes it hard to predict when it will stop functioning.  With only a few gripes, this drive meets the demands for the road warrior.

    Once again looking at the complete package you get is:

  • USB 2.0
  • Drivers and Manuals
  • Rubber Feet
  • Battery
  • DC Power and Battery charger
  • Drive Case

   I would like to thank Marcel of Enhance Technology for providing this product for us to review.


  • Small and lightweight
  • Battery power will out last most laptop batteries
  • USB and Firewire (IEEE1394) interfaces

  • Cons:

  • Mis-spelling on package
  • No battery level indicator
