Elecom's 4GB 0.85-inch HDD thumb drive

Elecom's 4GB 0.85-inch HDD thumb drive: "Filed under: Peripherals

Sure there have been USB flash drives beyond 4GB for a while now, but they'll cost you an arm and a leg, and as the iPod continues to demonstrate -- for now at least -- sometimes a bit of miniature HDD is the best way to go. With that in mind we have the MF-DU204G 4GB USB thumb drive from Elecom, based on a 0.85-inch HDD but still retaining most of that flash drive charm. Too bad we don't know the price, since that's most of the reasoning behind the endeavor, but while Samsung and Apple are busy pushing flash memory prices down, 0.85-inch might be our best bet for a while.
