Samsung unveils credit card sized 120GB portable hard drive

Samsung has taken a 120GB 1.8-inch hard drive and recently put it into a shiny black, credit card sized enclosure. Seemingly without an official name, the new drives feature a shiny black exterior with a hard drive logo and a simple statement of “The Storage World In Hand.”

All things considered 120GB is quite a lot of storage for a drive enclosure of that size, and certainly beats using a regular USB flash drive in terms of capacity. The drive does offer some nice perks in that its a 4200rpm drive which only requires 1.4W of power, which means it will not require anything other than a spare USB port for power.

The downfall is that its currently a little, well actually a lot on the expensive side and retailing for around $300. Of course, they also have a few smaller options such as the 40GB, 60GB or 80GB and those retail for a slightly more affordable $160, $190 and $235 respectively.
