Introduction

 

While we have mainly concentrated on the desktop market when it comes to hard drives, we must not forget the micro cousin which fills the notebook sector. Desktops are the primary mode for users of computers, but for the business user or those who want the Digital Notebook experience, some of the drives out there are too slow and have an extremely limited capacity; this is due to the power requirements of a notebook as well as the physical size constraints you're limited to.

 

Hitachi has come up with what looks to be one of the best ideas in the notebook storage market; an upgrade kit that includes a 2.5" Serial ATA hard disk which is what every new notebook along with some older ones on the market use. Designed to give you two hard disks in total, the new one is placed inside your notebook while the older one is installed into a USB powered 2.5" HDD enclosure and run through your USB ports; this giving you even more storage capacity.

 

Today we test out Hitachi's Notebook Upgrade Kit with 200GB capacity and a USB external enclosure included.
