Soyo 1.8 inch 20GB USB Hard Drive

Small, but I built a 250 gig usb hard drive for about the same price using the refurb caviar from woot and an enclosure. Slightly larger, in two respects.

can you BOOT a computer from this?

are these things durable? the mttf looks kinda low :frowning: but otherwise very nice

gee, nice “article” for CA there.

It might be a good deal, but I’ll pass. I just don’t know what’s so great about stuff like this.

yeah to bad i make my own portable hard drives.

Sooo tiny, and it fits 20GB??

Time for bed.

Wow… $69.95.

Best Froogle Price:

is this any good?is ths any good?

Yup. It’s just like any other USB HDD.


Not bad price: cheapest is $136 on Froogle

Looks liek a great deal."+20GB+USB+Hard+Drive&btnG=Search+Froogle

Close but no Cigar (Soyo, Sony, Sanyo).

overkill and overpriced

20GB for $70? I got 200GB drive in a Firewire/USB 2.0 combo case for that much. Thanks but no thanks.

I don’t want to carry it in my pocket. I want to leave it somewhere safe, as a backup.

Decent Woot but I’d be wary of anything from Soyo these days. They seem to have gone downhill over the past couple of years.
