I am going on holidays next week (yay!) for a month, and knowing me I will be taking alot of photos. Now I am not too crash hot on the idea of lugging my notebook half way around the world and so was looking for a portable storage divice that is small and that I can download the contents of my compact flash cards onto. The only ones that I have found for sale in Australia at a reasonable price is the X-drive here. Have any of you had any experience with these devices? How long does the battery last for in the field in real usage? Are they reliable? Are they robust? Also if anyone can suggest a place in Melbourne that I can go and purchase one of these or something similar then that would be fantastic.
