The Memup Kiosk LS Mini Series is a 2.5-inch portable external hard drive. Measuring just 121 x 83 x 18 mm, it slips easily into a pocket or bag for discreet data transportation. This LS Mini Series hard drive is available in a selection of colours, with white/grey, pink/white, blue/white and all-black models to choose from. As you can see in the picture above, this HDD has a self-powered USB 2.0 connection. The drive is available with 320, 500 or 750 GB of memory. As is all too often the case, performances are capped by the USB 2.0 interface. As a result, this hard drive can only manage read speeds of 34.6 MBps and write speeds 29.9 MBps. As we said above, the compact casing of the LS Mini makes it easy to carry around. Its lightweight 180 g design helps too. There are smaller and lighter drives out there, including 1.8-inch disks, but these only have a maximum capacity of 250 GB and work out more expensive per MB.
With the new Kiosk LS Mini hard drive, you can store, back up and share all sorts of data over a self-powered USB 2.0 port, whether you're working with videos, music, photos or documents. Hot plug technology means it's recognised immediately by all computers without the need to install new software. The transfer speeds didn't blow us away. The Kiosk LS Mini Series 1 TB drive peaked at 32.4 MB/s for reading data and 28.9 MB/s for writing. That might be pretty good for a USB 2.0 device, but looks weak compared to what USB 3.0 can achieve. For example, another 1 TB device, the Transcend StoreJet 25A3, puts in a much more impressive performance with read speeds of 110 MB/s and write speeds of 103 MB/s. The to devices are worlds apart. To keep your files nice and safe, Memup has used an external finish it calls ABS Glossy. We couldn't actually take it apart, so we can't tell whether there is any kind of protection inside. What we can say is that it seems pretty bulky compared to similar external hard drives. It measures 130 x 85 x 22 mm, or around 253 cm³; a more compact device would have a volume of around 200 cm³.
