Polaroid CGA-02540 Media Backup Device

A while ago Polaroid sent us their Polaroid CGA-02540 Media Photo Device to take a look at. In essence the CGA-02540 is a 40GB external hard drive which connects to your PC via USB. When you plug the drive in the installed firmware takes over and scans your PC for photos and copies them to the backup drive. It will search for 32 different file formats and also look inside ZIP files and emails.

The device works really quickly and can also be configured via its own control panel. The first backup can take some time, depending on how many photos you have of course but when used on subsequent occasions it simply looks for changes and works much more quickly.
