.puters-and-Technology As technology has advanced over the last few years one of the most astonishing features of the advancement is how much smaller technology has got. No matter where you look, everything is smaller than a decade ago; televisions, mobile phones, mp3 players, etc. Where these changes are most evident, however we you look at our memory solutions. Pen drives now hold GBs instead of MBs and external hard drives are laughed at if they are not a terabyte. A few years ago the thought of filling a terabyte was laughable but this is just another sign of how things have changed. There are hundreds of different external memory drives available on the market and you could be forgiven for believing that they are all the same, however each has their own benefits and setbacks and, of course, vary dramatically in price. Here are our top five hard drives on the market to help you make the right choice: My Passport Essential, Western Digital This is the best all-rounder on the market. It is simple to use and transfers data quickly through its USB 3.0 port. It can be bought in three sizes of 500GB 750GB or 1TB. Clickfree C2N This is the cheapest option in our top five, which is why it suffers from having to settle for a USB 2.0 port. However, the slightly reduced speed of file transfer is worth it for the money that you save especially when you consider wireless backup feature. Transcend StoreJet 25M3 This hard drive has everything that you need when looking for external memory. It .es in four different sizes to cater for your individual needs, and is by far the most durable product in our top five. Unfortunately its durability makes it a little heavier than its .petitors but the safety of your files and documents must be paramount. Buffalo MiniStation plus This product is slightly more expensive and slightly less durable than the Transcend which is why it falls slightly behind it in the ranking. It is a fantastic product for the money all the same; it has a USB 3.0 port for quick file transfer and is a reliable product that will keep your files safe for years. eGo SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Iomega are so proud of this hard drives best feature that they even put it in the name. it is a quick piece of kit thanks to its USB port, however its high price and the fact that its backup software is not .patible with Mac .puters sees it slip down the leader board.
