    Went to CP last friday. A sale guy is talking abt this device. There is an offer if u buy S2Pro. And they had extra piece to sell it cheap with Hard disk. I think the HD is 120G and selling at $200. Correct me if I am wrong!!

    It's probably 20GB. Perhaps the uncle said 1x20GB liao and you heard wrongly Just kidding.

    Anyway, the highest capacity for a 2.5" HDD seems to be only 80GB liao. But whether or not it's 20GB or 120GB, $199 is definitely cheap.

    $159 does not include the harddisk right?

    Yep. This stuff's probably gonna be a bit cheaper at SLS though, similar to Ban Leong's MPIO products.

    heh, even if there was a 120GB 2.5" HDD now, the HDD alone would probably cost 4 times as much as $200...

    anyhow, $200 for a 20GB combo is really very cheap, considering a 20GB 2.5" HDD cost about $130 brand new.

    Default Has anyone bot or tested the product?

    Does the S$159 include HDD?

    the website merely says card reader cum HDD case. my suspicion is that hdd is extra.

    yup. for 159, HD is not included.

    I bought it last 2 days ago in CP for 199 with 20G HD.

    It takes 3 to 3.5 minutes to transfer a 256 CF card to HD.

    $199 with 20GB? That is a good buy!

    Did you see if there was any transfer corruption, etc? I had encountered that problem with the X-drive. Was quite disappointed as some pictures I took during a trip were corrupted.

    P.S. any idea what harddisk this is?

    Guess what? I did that too

    but for my next trip, was thinking of taking at 5 megapixels, which will eat into the disk space like nobody's business if I back up twice.

    Sorry i non-techie... but this teramate thingy does not have lcd screen to check the photos. so how can the user know whether the files are corrupted or not?

    thanks

    Teramate seems like a bargain. of cos there is no lcd preview screen and fanciful features. but it seems like it can act as a portable hdd when i want to copy big files and yet can be brought around for shoots if required.

    any one knows what hdd is enclosed?

    is CP Cathay Photo?
