The LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt 2 is worth every penny of its hefty price tag, but only to those needing a super-fast and compact storage device.
Fast, user-friendly, and affordable, the WD Black 2 Dual Drive is an easy recommendation as a replacement drive for any standard laptop or desktop computer.
The Buffalo DriveStation DDR is by far the fastest single-volume external drive on the market and makes USB 3.0 a true alternative storage connection to Thunderbolt.
The Iomega Home Media Network Hard Drive Cloud Edition makes a very good simple home NAS server. Advanced users who need more control over their storage and remote access might want to look elsewhere.
The Radical Skin is one of three unique Iomega portable hard drives designed in collaboration with action sports apparel brand Skin Industries. Along with Knock Out and Red Hot, the $120 Radical Skin boasts an impressive 51-inch drop protecting rating and a generous three-year warranty, but it only comes in 500GB with no other capacities available. Not everyone will appreciate the design, but we recommend the Iomega Radical Skin for those who need a rugged portable hard drive.
The Hitachi SimpleTough is by far the most indestructible external hard drive we've tested, capable of surviving drops of up to 10 feet and up to one ton of pressure. With a built-in USB cable, two-tiered data security package, and an impressive three-year warranty, we have no issue recommending this external hard drive to shoppers looking for space and security.
The SanDisk Sansa Clip+ is an excellent successor to the line, offering a fitness-friendly design with a built-in belt-clip, a simple interface, solid sound quality, and plenty of handy features--all for an ultralow price. It's an unbeatable value.
