We've looked at two products now from ineo Technology and so far their designs have captured me with their ability to think outside the box. It isn't just their design and vision, though; their ability to hit extremely low price points has also intrigued me.
On the surface there isn't much involved with the ineo Technology USB 3.0 External HDD other than the fact it is USB 3.0. It is that very fact that makes this product so interesting. We've seen USB 3.0 components before, but never at this price point.
There are some issues that I did observe that are cause for concern, or at least a mention. Most users will be recycling older notebook drives; most of these are platter drives and the leather pouch doesn't offer a lot of shock protection, so users will want to set their drive down and not handle it when in use. The next issue has to do with the length of the cable. ineo includes a roughly 8 inch cable with the system and most PCs don't have front USB 3.0 ports at this time. That means you will need to reach around you system to plug the drive in.
Taking all of this a step further, you now have your drive connected to a USB 3.0 port, on the back of your computer, sitting on the ground. If you are in an office environment your PC might not be backed up against the wall, so now you have a 2.5" HDD on the ground, attached to the back of your PC is it in the walk way? - I really hope not, or your data is just one misstep away from being destroyed.
When it comes to pricing, the ineo Technology USB 3.0 External HDD Module is currently available at Newegg for 24.99 USD. ineo also has their products available online at Walmart.com and we would love to see them eventually make it to the retail stores.
