The Bottom Line The WD My Passport Portable makes an excellent portable drive for use with both desktop and laptop computers, at home or while on the road. 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. The WD My Passport Ultra is one of the best portable drives you can buy with software that makes backups fast and easy. The speedy My Passport Slim is an excellent mobile backup and storage expansion option. Its rugged, metal-casing design is a great extra, considering its affordable cost. Seagate Backup Plus carries the flexibility of the GoFlex portable drive while adding performance and style to portable storage. The new drive makes an excellent buy.
