Canon M30 portable storage unit


Review of the Canon M30 portable storage unit

Great LCD screen, construction

Expensive, handling, slow transfer speeds

The unit doesn’t represent very good value, at over £300, Epson and Vosonic offer a better capacity-to-outlay ratio and wider support for other file formats.
