Xigmatek Lighter 60GB – Introduction
Nowadays consumers enjoy the luxury of being able to choose from various external data storage solutions, utilizing either mechanical drives or flash memory. For those who require a large capacity the classical desktop hard disk based products are the most cost-effective answer; though they sacrifice mobility almost entirely. Not only because of their notable size and weight but they also require external power via an AC adapter as well. Therefore users who require a mobile storage solution have to look at smaller mechanical drives or flash drives. 2.5" drives are a good compromise between mobility and data capacity, but even though they are powered via the USB port the physical size of those devices is still considerable. Flash drives offer the best possible mobility nowadays but can be expensive in higher capacities.
Today we will have a look at the latest product from Xigmatek which offers a compromise between the small size of flash drives and the more reasonable cost of 2.5" drives, the Lighter 60GB USB drive.
