I-O Data’s Hard Drive Sucks Up Camcorder Footage Without A Computer
I-O Data’s latest hard drive, the HDPN-U500/V won’t turn too many heads, unless of course you’ve got a compatible camcorder. Lost? I would be too. You see, this 500GB USB 2.0 hard drive can attach directly to any JVC “Everio”, Sanyo “Zakuti”, or Sony “Handycam” and suck down whatever footage is stored on the camera’s drive, sans computer. Cool if you’ve maxed out your camcorder’s storage capacity, but we hardly think these things will be flying of the shelves for this reason alone. Fortunately, it also functions as a regular hard drive and will cost just $170.
