Its basically ur HDD, shrunk 10 times down.
Be careful how u handle it though... A simple "Whoops!" a loud *piak* and u see ur Data fly to Data Heaven and see urself plunging to the darkest depths of Hell.

my experience has not been very positive
they said many things about how good it is etc
but when used with DSLR for whole day of shoot, the card
overheat and after 200 shoots , it simply shuts down
shots werent taken in quick seccession, just regular event shoot.
However if you take leisurely shots, it might have time to cool off.
However HITACHI drive dont have that problem

My 2 cents worth of comments.
Basically microdrives is a shrink down version of the current drive. Due to its size, the major problems are heat dissipation and static electric zap (or ESD) especially when use in portable device like cameras. The big manufacturers are jumping into the market now as they see the potential. I believe by next year you will have much cheaper microdrives at a higher capacity points flowing into the retail market.
