Some redeye

Noise goes up while saturation goes down at ISO 800/1000 settings

Unimpressive continuous shooting mode

Toshiba USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drive Review

This black friday we should be seeing some deals on external hard drives. And here is a review of a Toshiba one. Gadgeteer reviews the Toshiba USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drive.

Here the conclusion they came to:

In conclusion, I really like the sleek and compact design of the Toshiba drive. The preloaded NTI Shadow backup software is extremely easy to use and has many different options for scheduling a backup job.

The only negatives that I found were the lack of a Firewire connection port and the short USB cable. A missing Firewire port is acceptable when compared to other options at this price-point in the market but a 13 inch USB cable just makes no sense to me.

I would easily recommend the 400GB Toshiba Portable External Hard Drive.
