A 'pocket friendly' HD multimedia drive

It doesn't have the highest capacity, but it's tough to beat the size.


The competition for multimedia HD hard drives gets more intense by the day, but few can compete with this item when it comes to portability. The Mvix MV-2500U may be the only device we've seen in its category that's touted as being "pocket-friendly."

But that's exactly what it is, according to its dimensions of 5 by 3 inches and--get this--only a half-inch thick. Even at that diminutive size it manages to cram in a 2.5-inch hard drive and compatibility with practically every video and audio format imaginable, with capacities of 80GB, 160GB, or 250GB, Engadget says. And it looks good too.
