Manufacturer: Jobo
Giga One

The Jobo Giga One is a 30GB portable storage drive that also functions as a 10-in-1 card reader.

Constructed from aluminium, it features a fast USB 2.0 transfer, which allows photographs to be transferred from CompactFlash I and II, SecureDigital, MultiMedia Cards, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, Memory Stick Duo and xD-Picture Cards using three flash media slots or from a computer.

The Giga One takes just seven minutes to transfer 1GB of data from a CompactFlash card.

Information about the transfer status, available hard drive space and remaining battery life is displayed on an LCD screen.

Jobo Giga ONE is £109.99 and is available from a range of photographic retailers.
