TY seems abit hard to find in sg these days. do try MCC03 or MCC04. they burn pretty decent as well.

my list of must buys? hm.
1. more memory related items (CFs, thumbdrives, hdd, dvdr)
2. a bigger dry cabinet?
- to be honest, i dont really know what should/can buy at such shows these days. most of the things on offer there is either too exp. or not necc for my needs. *shrug*

'side project'
1. take photos of show girls?
2. take photos of the latest products eg. zhng-ed casing or like the previous show, the gold motorola marketing gimmick?

at the end of the day.. you will curse
1. a huge damage on your wallet
2. baby scrollers! they shouldnt be brought to such a crowded place -_-
3. expensive parking fees at expo (if you drive)

Its a type of dye particularly used in DVD-Rs. Sadly they have become extinct here in Singapore. :rolleyes:

I'm using MCC02 since its -R media ... kinda sad. :rolleyes: .. can't find them anymore.

All PC shows are more or less the same ... :dunno: ... and yes i simply hate people bringing baby strollers to the already crowded show floor.

I plan to buy some DVD-Rs and maybe some DVD-RWs. I got lots of data in my laptop that I need to back it up.

I am also thinking of buying a portable hard-drive. May also go and find out how much a Macbook costs.

Btw, anyone knows a good & reliable brand for a portable hard-drive? I'm a complete tech idiot.

Cheers,
{mich}

Cool, thanks for the reply! :) For your Hitachi harddrive, does it lag? Meaning taking a long time when you transfer huge amount of files from your laptop to your harddrive? Because I used my friend's portable hdd and it was so slow.

For yours including the housing combo, how much does it costs in total?

Thanks for the reply again.

No probs ... Housing costs $25-28 depending on the shop.

As for lag, it depends how much data we're talking about. USB 2.0 will never feel as zippy as firewire. On the other hand, it might be that you connected a USB 2.0 housing to a 1.1 port or vice versa which causes the slow down.

i 2nd that for hitachi hdd(s). i wonder why some people are always rooting for seagate even though their problems for the recent batch of 320gb hdd are so obvious -_-

you might also want to consider the rpm of the hdd. the faster the rpm = the faster the transfer = the noiser the drive = the faster it gets heated up.

the 2.5" portable hdd has 2 speeds i believe. 4200rpm and 5400rpm.
