A corrupt and crashed hard drive might be more depressing than breaking up with a rich, well spoken super model. All those important pics and video files (wink), oh and text files will be lost. And God knows backing up with Time Machine on the mac or any computer is an arduous task.
Enter the Lexar Echo ZE, a tiny and discreet USB flash drive for those with the on the go lifestyle. It measures a diminutive 20.1 by 15.1 millimeters in size, is compatible with any OS on the market today and is available in 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB capacities. Sure, that won’t back up your entire hard drive’s contents, but all the pertinent files will be saved, and it’s small enough that you can always leave it plugged in. I just wished they had designed it with a daisy chain like input, so you didn’t have to have one of your few (probably 2 or 3) USB drives always occupied.
You can currently pre-order the Lexar Echo ZE at Amazon, which range from $50 to $140.
