Seagate Portable Review
High capacity, low price. Slow, though.
Seagate makes some pretty slid external HDs, and the Portable is no exception. It offers plenty of storage at a very low price, but its slow transfer speeds may have you looking elsewhere. Check out our full Seagate Portable review for all the details.
Seagate Backup Plus Portable Review
A solid, low-cost alternative.
The Seagate Backup Plus Portable is a pricier alternative to the regular Seagate portable as it comes with some extra software and other goodies. However, some of that extra cost goes to looks alone, as you can read in our full review.
ADATA SD600 Review
Cheap, but a bit flimsy and a bit slow.

Toshiba Canvio Basics Review
Slow and steady wins some races.
The Toshiba Canvio Basics line is one of workhorses. They're a bit slow and can't be used for mass transfers, but they stick around forever and are pretty cheap, too. Check out our full Toshiba Canvio Basics review for the details.
LaCie Rugged Mini Review
A tough drive that's also pretty slow and pricey.
If you want a hard drive that can take a beating, the LaCie Rugged might seem a good buy. If you want a good external HD that works well, avoid this product. Read the why in our full LaCie Rugged review.
