I have it, I got it specifically for Travel and it worked fine even though it was only displaying 2 of 4 bars of battery life no matter how charged it was. It never drained anyways but I sent it in for a replacement to have a more accurate battery indicator.

You can save a few bucks by getting the case only and getting a hard drive separately to install yourself. It just slides in, the only thing I wish they had a slide-off backing rather than screwed on just so you could pop in a different drive easier if you want to have multiple drives in case of failure.

I have the two older colour versions (Colourspace and "" - O), and they both work really well. I bought just the cases for each, and installed my own drives, and have used them overseas and in the bush at home. If you don't need the extra features of the new UDMA version, it might be better value for you to get one of the older models. I also have the external AA battery pack for them too, just in case they run out of juice, and no mains power is available.

Oooh! There's a UDMA Hyperdrive? Hmmm, that's very tempting. But £300 for 320 GB is a little expensive.

Grab the case and a cheapo hardrive as mentioned above :)

Any standard 2.5inch drive should work and I belive you can format the drive within the device ;)

Damn this forum and all the nice goodies that keep popping up. I've just ordered the Hyperspace UDMA and a 320 GB drive. That should do for all my backups during 2.5 weeks in Africa.

This might be helpful -- cowboy was kind enough to post details about his new hyperdrive:
