The Bottom Line 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. 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 Seagate Slim is an excellent addition to your small laptop, especially one with USB 3.0, for both storage expansion and backup while you're out and about. 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 WD My Passport Ultra is one of the best portable drives you can buy with software that makes backups fast and easy.
