Portable external storage drives have been the saving grace of many consumers who have needed to transfer large amounts of data at one time or another. For the most part, these portable drives have been limited to the 2.5" HDD form factor, and were still a little bulky to toss into a pocket or purse. Today VisionTek has solved that problem forever.

VisionTek says that the mSATA Mini Enclosure has a footprint smaller than a business card and thanks to mSATA SSD technology, the device can store more than a similarly priced thumb-drive, and remain faster. Unfortunately the mSATA enclosure is just that, an enclosure. You will have to purchase and install your own mSATA SSD. Total cost for the enclosure and a decent mSATA drive will be over $100, but if you need to save space while retaining storage, this may be for you.
