The WD My Passport Ultra is one of the best portable drives you can buy with software that makes backups fast and easy. 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 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. Versatile, good-looking, and fast enough for most applications, the Buffalo MiniStation Thunderbolt HD-PATU3 makes an excellent buy for those looking for a portable Thunderbolt storage device.
