The HP Pocket Media Drive is a compact, portable external hard-disc drive that retails in several sizes from 80GB up to 500GB. It is in essence the smaller cousin to the larger HP Personal Media Drive. It also connects by USB, as well as direct in-chassis—this only works with specialized HP computers. Included also is Windows backup & encryption software. It doesn’t necessarily have to be used though; the device can work with ANY computer, including Macintosh, with just a simple click and drag file transfer. Other points to consider are an included black carrying case, a 1-year warranty on the hardware, and USB 1.1 backwards-compatibility.
