Very nice product and very nice review..

Thing is I'd need a pretty hefty memory stick to be able to back up enough data.

Nice review, link to the 32GB drive is broken

As bungral said, its not big enough, unless you used it for major backups only...

Its not broken, ebuyer have just run out of stock It would seem.

If It doesnt come back in stock in the next few days then Ill add a different link..

32/64gb may not seem enough, but actually, all my vital data was only a fraction of what I thought it would be.

Is that powered just through the USB? If you have to start faffing around with power bricks it kind of loses the appeal of the Port...
