If you're looking to upgrade your computer's main hard drive, the Transcend SSD720 is a strong option.
The Transcend StoreJet 25 Mobile stomps the competition and lives to fight another day, thanks to its rugged military-grade exterior. It also delivers chart topping transfer speeds and offers the cheapest cost per gigabyte on the market today. We fully recommend this tough little drive.
While other external hard drives offer built-in backup software, automatic data encryption, or rugged casing protection, the Transcend StoreJet 25F only promises, and delivers, the fastest data transfers at the lowest price. The missing FireWire prevents us from giving this Transcend an Editors' Choice award, but we still highly recommend this drive to storage hounds who don't mind USB 2.0.
Data hits the road with Transcend's inexpensive StoreJet USB hard drive, but it's hardly high performance.
Despite a few shortcomings, the Windows-only HP Portable Hard Drive makes a very good and simple backup option for home users.
If style is as important as performance to you, the Drive SSD is the portable drive you've been saving for.
The Elgato Thunderbolt Drive+ is by far the fastest portable drive to date and, for power users, totally worth the investment.
