I'm looking to acquire a portable storage unit, and unfortunately I didn't find many options available in Norway. I did find the Thecus Y.E.S. Nano N1050. It seems an acceptable unit; a slight drawback that it does not have slots (I need SD, since I have a D80), but require an usb connection to the camera.

I've looked over some other threads, but didn't find much about it.
It's a quite cheap device, selling at a local webshop for about $70/£35.

(interestingly enough, the uk counterpart of the webshop is selling the exact same device for £17.50)

Anyway, I'm wondering if anyone here has any experience with the N1050.


edit: if there's any other products that I really should consider instead of this, I'm all ears.

If it takes USB could you plug a card reader into it?

I'd say it's rather inconvenient if you have to plug the camera into it to download your pics. That means you can't keep shooting while your downloading.

... and that's just the case for a 2.5" hard drive that you buy separately.

from what I've read, a card reader should work, yes.

I just thought of another thing: DPchallenge requires that I keep an unedited copy of the original file, for verification purposes.

If I've understood things correctly, the default option in windows to copy files from a connected device does in fact cause the image to be "tainted" as edited.

Would such devices (any brand) be doing the same with its copy procedure?
