The formac disk mini is a great portable device with plenty of storage. The 160gb hard drive on it makes it great for backing up your all important pictures, music, software and documents. It is very small (just slightly bigger than a passport - but not in thickness, although that is roughly under an inch thick.
It looks stylish and smart in its black finish although, unfortunatly, this scratches very easily.
It runs almost silently and I never notice it while my pc or laptop is in use but it does occasionally vibrate if i place it on my metal computer casing.
It is great as an additional hard drive but you wouldn't want to install any software on to it.
In the box, it comes with the hard drive itself and a usb cable with two ends on it (red and black cables) which i assume are for extra power.
It also has another jack on the back of it yet nothing come with it to be plugged into it although it looks like a power supply plug.
The speed of transfer is also reasonably quick though i have no other portable hard drives to compare it with.
