the Firewire and USB2.0 drives start taking off, there are
a lot of companies that are joining the market.
Working on making hardware
that supports both is one thing many are
incorporating into their one stand alone drive. Today I have a Mini Portable
Disk (MPD SI-2110) from
on the review block, lets see how it fairs.
First off lets take a look at what was sent in the
box. You get the drivers, instructions, one 6 foot FireWire cable (Clear with silver meshing),
2.0 cable, the drive enclosure itself, and
the power cable. Please note, for this review they have included
a 40GB drive so we can test out MPD's functions.
MPD comes with a lithium-ion battery to power the
disk without using the power from the FireWire cable. This helps a
lot, especially when you are on the road.
power button is on the left side of the MIni Portable
Disk. All of the plugs for the MPD are located on
the back. You have one USB 2.0 and two FireWire ports
so you can chain the 1394 devices together (400'
MAX), plus the DC IN for power / re-charge.
