Hard drives with pizzazz: media and more

Photo viewers, multimedia playback, memory card transfers -- these hard disk drives do more than just sit on your desk and store your digital stuff.

Iogear Portable Media Server GMD2025U120

The Iogear Portable Media Server GMD2025U120 isn't your typical portable external hard drive. This diminutive $350 device--about the size of a stack of index cards--stores 120GB of data, but also supports playback via your TV. It features component and composite video output, composite audio output, and an array of media playback controls on the unit itself along with a remote control. Its small size--3.2-by-5.25-by-0.75 inches--makes it easy to take your media collection wherever you go, so you can show your friends the latest video of your cats without having to crowd around a laptop or portable media player screen. Also available: Iogear's Portable Media Enclosure ($290), which gives you the same media playback features, but lets you insert your own hard drive into the unit.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
