>> Justin: Hey you guys it's Justin Yu, Assistant Editor for CNET.com and I'm here to show you this new external hard drive by
a company called Transcend it's called the Store Jet 25F. Now I've reviewed a lot of different external hard drives here and while
it's nice that other manufacturers are offering drives with snazzy features like automatic backups or beefed up security I can also
appreciate the simplicity of a drive like the Store Jet. It's 175 bucks at the time of this review for the 500G model which means
you're only paying 13 cents per gig, that makes it the best value out of all the other external hard drives we tested at CNET.com.
Now it's really not that hard on the eyes either I really like this BlackBerry shape of the case the top is glossy with a subtle
diamond pattern and there's a couple rubber feet on the bottom to keep it from slipping on your tabletop. In fact, we would have
awarded it in Editor's Choice were it not for this one hiccup, no Firewire now we're gonna continue to ding these companies for
ignoring the pleas of Firewire users across the tech world. This one only comes with USB 2.0 connectivity and that's really our only
complaint. We're as equally impressed with the transfer speeds as we are the price the Store Jet stays on top of the competition again
reading 28MB per second and writing 24. Now compare that to the slowest drive out of the bunch that took a full 10 seconds slower
in both tests. Now if you don't need all the filler features and really just want a small external hard drive that can quickly transfer
data and won't cost you an arm and a leg make this one your go-to device. I'm Justin Yu and this is the Transcend Store Jet 25F,
thanks for watching.
