Macally is a manufacturer of MAC and PC accessories worldwide. MAC users will probably be more familiar with the name, but if you're a PC user, pay attention, because you're missing a exclusive line of high-quality products. In this review, one of the latest accessories from macally will be featured. At minimum, The 250 OTG is a USB 2.0 2.5" external enclosure unit which you will carry around with you more often as you realize its potential. Looking at other external enclosures for drives, I have found the macally to be one of more durable enclosures available, as well as intelligently designed.

Please visit macally.com for a vast assortment of other peripherals.

In this review, we're taking an in-depth look at a particular model of macally's enclosure line, the 250 OTG. The 250 OTG is a high-quality USB 2.0 enclosure, providing the speed, protection, and portability you will need due for the expandable uses which will be explained shortly. Because of the 250 OTG's capability of transfering files from not only your computer, but from your digital camera, media reader, MP3 player, and just about anything that has a USB Mass Storage (USBMS) and Picture Transport Protocol (PTP) type rating, you will be using the 250 OTG for more than just a convenient drive to place files on.

No Computer Necessary

Indeed, due to the 250OTG's internal Li-Ion battery, you now have a device which is totally independent. Almost any kind of digital device can be connected for exchange and transfer of files.

Frustrated Due To Overlapping Hardware?

As a consumer in today's technology, we will regularly find ourselves overlapping our needs in regards to data storage. It's inevitable considering most of us have the following:

1) Digital camera (whether a $100 P&S or a $1000+ DSLR)
2) MP3 player
3) Notebook PC
4) Desktop PC
5) External Hard drive
6) Media Card reader

These are just off the top of my head, and you may have other data storage accessories. As you can see, the average computer owner has a lot of devices where a flexible storage unit could reduce the overlapping, providing a much better streamlined and timesaving approach to storage.

Let's get started on the 250 OTG...
