Awesome review by this guy - bear in mind the CPU speed on his review is slower than the one I'm submitting for you here (2.4G Vs 2.66G).
Biggest issues appear to be price (which should be now solved) and looks
Also The GG are offering a:
SAMSUNG S2 1TB portable (as in usb powered not mains powered) hard drive for $99
