A few years ago introduced USB flash drives are a revolutionary way to save on external easiest way somewhat large amounts of data for transport or backup, for large data volume but remained only the possibility to use an external hard drive however, these are not always suitable because of their size for transport. Mini-disks that are not much bigger than a credit card promise, so much space and flexibility simultaneously, we have the X-Micro Mini Disgo undergo a short test with 20GB and created a comparison with conventional USB flash drives and external hard drives.
The X-Micro Mini Disgo is a 10x6x0, 85-centimeter mini-disk, due to their small size, they fit in your pocket and take this away not even particularly a lot of space, the Disgo hard drive series includes hard drives with 5, 20, 30 and 40 GB. The original manufacturer of the panels is Toshiba, all feature a fast USB 2.0 connection, so that even large amounts of data to be transferred quickly to a PC.
The package contains the hard drive itself, a short USB cable and a protective case, the mini USB hard drive plugged Disgo in an elegant and lightweight aluminum body, the outer bag features a simple company logo, the rest of the housing is limited to the USB port and an LED on the left. The hard drive is powered via the USB port itself with power, indicating their readiness via a green LED, somewhat problematic is the connection to a PC, since the disk, just hanging in the air when the USB ports are not just at the bottom of the case uncomplicated therefore connect to a notebook.
For newer operating systems, the Mini Disgo after connecting to a PC is ready for use, it will therefore require no additional drivers, formats are real 18.6 GB of memory available. In practical tests, the Mini Disgo average data transfer rate reached 9.0 Mbytes / second for reading and 12.1 to 12.9 MB / sec write, the average access time was 18.9 milliseconds, for such a disk is certainly not a bad value is particularly disappointing for the reading speed.
