Plextor has added the 160GB PX-PH16U2 to its line of portable hard disk drives. The drive is quite small â€“ 74.2 x 128.6 x 12.5mm, 170g â€“ and very easy in the pocket. Itâ€™s easy on the pocket too, Plextor promises, although no price has yet been revealed beyond saying that the new drive will be affordable.
The PX-PH16U2 connects via USB 2.0 with a transfer rate of 480Mbps, but is also compatible with USB 1.1 at 12Mbps.
The handy hard drive comes in brushed aluminum finish and is compatible with both Macs and PCs. Could be useful for photographers who need to carry around their burgeoning portfolio of photos, or the kid who has a massive collection of mp3s and music videos.
