    Smile Which is the most reliable portable storage?

    Hi guys...

    I understand that there r few brands or types of portable storage device. (One that allows you to backup your pics from memory cards into HDD)

    Anyone can advice which is most reliable and good?

    If I have a few cameras and needed to backup into the portable storage device, will the device mixed up all my photos?

    My requirements are easy -
    1. fast and easy to use,
    2. able to view pics is a bonus but not a must,
    3. able to use normal AA batts will be good.

    Appreciate portable storage device users to give your advices. Thank you.

    Ask yourself these questions before deciding if you need a PSD:
    [1] How big a backup capacity would you need for one trip (how many GB)?
    [2] How often will you be using the device (once a year while you are on vacation)?
    [3] Will you be using it for an extended period of time without access to power (i.e. how often will you be able to find power connection to recharge your battery)?

    If you only need 40-50GB at a time, use it 2-3 times a year and you most likely have access to power connection at least once a day, perhaps a netbook will be a better solution. You can surf internet and do other stuff while you are traveling with netbook instead of just a PSD to download images. A mid-range PSD will cost around $400 and a netbook is around there also...

    Thanks...

    I am running photography courses for children and will need it to transfer pics from the camera when I am out. And I am talking about 40 children per class. I am looking into any possibilities of without having to transfer the pics to computer when there is a lack of time.
