At 60 GB maximum capacity the Aegis Mini may not offer enough storage space for lots of audio or video content. At its 20 MB/s data transfer rates and 21.9 ms access time it is not one of the fastest external storage devices either - yet performance is well within the range we would expect from a 1.8" hard drive. The product has a neat design, a very small footprint, a smart solution to stow the USB connector and the box content includes lots of software that adds a lot of value to a storage device.
Apricorn offers a one year warranty, which is very much standard today. Still we would love to see at least a two year warranty, since we're talking about a device that will hold your valuable data.
- great software
- good performance for a 1.8" device
- integrated USB cable
- not exactly a bargain at ~ $210
