OWC 160GB 7200rpm Drive In Pocket-Sized Enclosure Does a Quick Three-Way

Other World Computing (OWC) has taken a Seagate Momentus 7200 160GB 2.5-inch drive and put it into an enclosure that gives you fast throughput with a trio of port choices, including USB 2.0, FireWire 400 and 800. The OWC 160GB Mercury On-The-Go is bus powered, freeing you from wall warts and their associated wires by drawing power from the PC via the drive's included FireWire 400, FireWire 800 and USB cables.

All that data is packed into this tiny disk by using perpendicular recording technology, and it's the first 160GB pocket drive we've seen that can deliver 7200rpm speed. We have a 100-gig drive in this same enclosure from Other World Computing, and find it to be a speedy and versatile performer. Plus, we like its spiffy blue LED inside, lighting things up just for fun. If you're looking for lots of capacity and could use that 7200rpm speed, this might be well worth your $279.99.
