The Bottom Line The ioSafe Solo G3 makes an excellent backup solution for those who need to make sure their important data survives even the worst disasters. 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. 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. Fast, user-friendly, and affordable, the WD Black 2 Dual Drive is an easy recommendation as a replacement drive for any standard laptop or desktop computer. 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.
