Great little addition to your Wii – Mini Wii Console Shaped USB 2.0 2.5" SATA Portable Hard Drive Enclosure - White Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Compatible with wii - using gxloader or other homebrew loader
Small, very compact
Uses standard miniusb cable, not that a-a nonsense, so many others use.
Cons:
Build quality is decent enough, espec. if permanently connected to a Wii or wotnot... but for travelling purposes, I would choose an aluminium case, which is typically cheaper as well
The case has no dimensions, that actually fit the wii. It only looks like a miniture wii... If it was as long, as the Wii is wide, it would look nicer...
Other:
My kids love the flutes, that are bundled... Oh, what priceless fun, and not the least bit irritating... at all... Aargh, who am I trying to fool here?
But for the sake of me, I cannot fathom, why the flutes are in the budle at all... Only puts the price tag up a nudge.
Bottomline:
Great, if you have a wii, as not all externals are compatible.
Too expensive, if for any other purpose.
