    Seagate Pocket Hard Drive!

    I set out shopping for a USB pen drive last night, hoping for something that had the capacity to cart audio production work between several locations. I discovered the Seagate Pocket Hard Drive for USD 139.99 at Best Buy. Pen drives retailed for $99.99 (lowest) effectively making the cost per megabyte .09 cents. The Seagate averages out to .02 cents...wow!!

    Highly recommended. I can now carry my audio production library with me everywhere I go. <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23>

    WyllyWylly rates it Two Thumbs Up.

    Re: Seagate Pocket Hard Drive!

    The price difference per megabyte simply indicates the (current) relative production costs and that the hard disk has had more years of development behind it than has the USB Flash Drive.

    I remember the first HP laser printer cost around

    I know of several HP III's running and are still doing a great job.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Re: Seagate Pocket Hard Drive!

    At our office, we just replaced some of our oldest HP printers. Most still did the job OK. However, when one would break something, and we would replace the part (you can still buy a spare for almost any part on any HP printer), we would invariably break another part during the repair. This was a hassle, so we replaced a lot of them.

    The user's really liked it, because the quick "First page out" features of the newer printers made them apear much much faster.
