    Hey Everybody ,
    Can anyone see a problem with velcro-ing a mobile hard drive to the back of the ep121 , say a 500GB Lacie via usb and load it with all matter of HD goodness . What are the pitfalls of this plan (aside from not looking as sleek).

    Battery life will take a big hit, in addition to portability.

    Interesting. This past weekend I got the same idea . Very useful when traveling. I just am deciding a removable Velcro elastic harness or a pouch. I do disagree though; I do think if done right it can look nice. Will post some pics when have do something. You should too
    Thanks

    Ha! I was also thinking the same thing, after seeing this: Amazon.com: Seagate GoFlex Slim 320 GB USB 3.0 Performance External Hard Drive, STBE320100 (Black): Electronics

    This guy is as thin as a pencil!

    You might consider a different solution as long as the portability you desire does not take you away from a wifi connection. My solution for the smaller capacity of the SSD drive is to make use of a home Network Attached Storage device. I have a Netgear ReadyNAS NV+ with 2 TB of storage. It has all of my photos, about 700 CDs, and about 400 films. It supports SFTP file sharing. I obtained a really nice utility called Expandrive that will mount the NAS so I see it as a local drive anywhere I have wifi: home, work or in a hotel or coffee shop. I can watch a film, listen to my favorite CD, or work on a document. The NAS manages the drives as a RAID array so that data loss is extremely unlikely even if one of the disk drives fails. Gives me lots of storage capacity and preserves the portability of the EP121.
