The first interesting external hard drive we've seen in a while
Portable hard drives are a commodity product, and it’s hard to make them interesting. Take a notebook hard drive, slap it in a bit of plastic with a SATA-to-USB controller inside, and presto, there’s your drive. If it’s USB 2.0, it’ll read at 33.3MB/s and write at around 29MB/s, and if it’s USB 3.0, it’ll read and write at the speed of the mechanical hard drive inside. Yawn.
