I agree absolutely with Ben – it’s just much more practical. Moreover, if you put in a little fore thought, you could get a format that’s compatible with your digital camera, eh? Of, maybe make both purchases at one time?
A company I did a contract job for actually gave me a handful of USB key drives on completion – I gave all but one away and actually only used that unit (64MB) two or three times (it’s now a long-term resident of my change dish).
Also, you might consider a 2.5-inch HDD in a portable enclosure – it’s a much, much better value. And, it will provide better performance and vastly greater capacity for roughly twice or perhaps thrice the price.
www.macpower.com.tw offers a very sharp looking 2.5-inch enclosure and they’re readily available at the shops down at Guanghua…
