X-Micro Mini DisGo 20 GB Review

Introduction

Nowadays with broadband Internet, DVDs and hard disk drives over 120 GB the necessity for high-capacity mobile storage is greater than never. You may need to copy some files at a friend’s home or even make a backup. Flash USB drives are a convenient way to carry data around, but they are not available with capacities beyond 4 GB yet. X-Micro has just released a very small external hard disk drive that promises to fill this gap, named Mini DisGo.

Measuring only 3.94 x 2.36 x 0.33 inches (100 x 60 x 8.5 mm) and weighting only 3 ounces (85 grams), we were really impressed by its size and weight.

X-Micro’s Mini DisGo is available on 5 GB, 20 GB, 30 GB and 40 GB versions, and we reviewed the 20 GB model.

Together with the hard drive come a black leather cover and a short USB cable. It is attached to the computer through an USB 2.0 port.
