Has anyone had any exeprience with USB Bridge devices -- for transferring memory cards (in camera) to an external hard drive. Here is one I am looking at
Asking cause I will be traveling in March and don't want to take my laptop cause I will end up leaving it in the hotel room..... but I have a small mini 40GB hard drive I can put in the back pocket of my camera bag (which will be with me at all times). Then I could use the bridge device to offload photos from my memory cards to the drive over the course of a week.
Wondering how well do they work, how fast would a 1GB card transfer and how long do their batteries last.
Any dealings or info would be appreciated.
