    Anyone used an ORB Drive?

    I'm thinking of getting an ORB Drive. Anyone else used one of these? can you share your experiences with them?

    My dad uses an ORB drive, and he really likes it. I guess a problem with it is that not a whole lot of people have them, so you can't really just put data on a disk and take it to someone else.

    The disks hold a lot of info (a few gigs, off the top of my head) and comes made for a scuzzy, but with a USB converter.

    If you want something that you can use to hold a lot of data when like backing up or transferring between machines, I'd recommend it.

    I dont own one but I have used them a bit. One of my clients has them and they use them to send data to the different branch offices.

    Personally I think they do a good job - better than zip drives by far. There capacity of 2.2Gb is a decent size for a removable storage device but as Hyperbaseball said, there lack of market penetration limits there usefulness.
