    So what is the catch with these things?

    Speed? But claimed speeds are fast
    Power consumption? 300mA writing is a fair bit
    Reliability? ???
    Dont't work above ~4000m True, apparently..

    I was wondering this too... if you were in the market for a 1gb
    CompactFlash card (~$400 AUD), why wouldn't you go the for the 2.2gb
    MicroDrive (also ~$400 AUD)?

  4. Matt <>, far, far away from here,
    appears to have written:

    Because MD's are a miniature hard drive, with all of the issues you
    would expect with a hard drive. (ie they fail.)

    Also, if you read the relevant forums, there are people who have had
    issues with the Magicstor MD.

    cheers, Mic (Reply address works...)
