Transcend StoreJet portable drive knows its job and does it well

The missing FireWire prevents us from awarding this Transcend an Editors' Choice award, but we still highly recommend this drive to storage hounds who don't mind USB 2.0

The beauty of an external hard drive lies almost completely in its simplicity. It's designed to do one thing, and it better do it well: transfer data as fast as possible from a host computer, allowing the user to spend as little time waiting as possible. While other drives add automatic backup solutions or brag about their indestructibility, the $175, 500GB Transcend StoreJet 25f portable hard drive only does what it's supposed to, and on the cheap to boot.
