My review sample has a 60GB capacity, but a larger 160GB drive will also be on the market soon. Color choices are white, black, and pink.
Pricing on the 60GB model is currently around $40 after rebate. That is pretty aggressive pricing and a much cheaper storage solution than say, a 64GB USB flash drive.
Everything you need to use this drive is included, so it's ready to go right out of the box. A USB 2.0 cable and a leather storage pouch round out the accessories. No instruction manual is included, but it is readily available for download on Xigmatek's website in the event you need to refer to it.
