|Bottom line|| |
Relatively compact and ultrarugged, the IoSafe Rugged Portable could be a great investment for someone who's constantly on the go or works in a challenging environment such as a ship, an oil rig, construction sites, or even war zones. For others, it would probably be overkill.
Fast, flexible, rugged, and affordable, the LaCie Rugged Thunderbolt is one of the best high-end portable drives on the market.
The Silicon Power Armor A80 makes an excellent portable drive for travelers and home offices alike.
The WD My Passport Ultra is one of the best portable drives you can buy with software that makes backups fast and easy.
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.
