If your IT department could design a tablet, the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet would be it.
Even with the slightly low USB 3.0 performance, the GoFlex Ultra still makes an excellent portable external hard drive for people who need to expand their computer's storage.
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.
Mac and PC users alike will appreciate the Iomega eGo Portable's triple interface connectivity that lets you choose from USB 2.0, FireWire 400, and FireWire 800. Combined with a rugged enclosure, free data protection software, and a robust three-year warranty, this drive is a great example of well-rounded hardware. We thoroughly recommend it both for average consumer as well as data-hounds on a budget.
If you don't need all the bells and whistles that come with the OneTouch III Turbo Edition, the basic OneTouch III hard drive is a promising choice. The functional design, the software bundle, and the 7,200rpm hard drive make for a good basic external drive.
