 Review of the miniMate

It looks like a Mac Mini. Is designed to sit underneath and has up to 400GB of hard disk space and adds more Firewire and USB ports. If I actually owned a Mini a miniMate would be on my short list.

"The miniMate is available with storage up to 400 GB, and it has 3 USB 2.0 ports and 3 FireWire ports. It is also very is easy to hook up; simply attach power, USB and FireWire cables and it's ready to use. The miniMate shows up on the computer as being attached through just FireWire, even when plugged in using the USB and FireWire cables. Without the use of the FireWire cable, it will show up as a USB device. Formatting the hard drive is easy, and like any other disk, it involves going to Disk Utility and selecting the miniMate from the menu and erasing the contents from there."
