    I like the product review video format. I agree that the USB cable is rather short, but that may be typical. My 100 GB external Firelite drive (a Samsung model) came with a fairly short USB cable as well. As long as one has a hub or a USB connection on front of pc, though it should be good. Anyway, thanks for the review Julie and as always I will continue to check out the latest reviews on your site!

    Hi Chris:

    Glad that you like the new video reviews. They are fun to make and actually save me some time over real reviews as I don’t have to take pictures, and write the review ;o)

    I’ve not heard of Firelite drives. I like Samsung’s products, I’ll have to check them out.

    I am actually grateful for the short USB cable that comes with most of these drives today. For me, a 2.5″ bus-powered hard drive is almost always for use with my laptop.

    A longer cable, then, just gets in the way on my workspace and takes up more space when coiled in my bag. I’ve had drives come with 3-ft. cables before and actually spent more money to replace it with a shorter 1-ft. cable.

    Maybe I need a bigger bag … ;)
