Ever have that problem where you want to take a nice group picture of your friends, say at the Grand Canyon, and you just can’t get ‘em all in the frame? So you ask them to keep backing up a step and before you know it… oops!

PNY MaxFile Attache

The PNY drive not only sports the most capacity in this roundup, it’s also the fastest. It blew the others out of the water in our 3GB read/write test. Its read speed (361 seconds) was an incredible minute and a half faster than the Verbatim drive, and its write speed (430 seconds) was an ass-kicking three minutes faster than both the Verbatim and Western Digital models.

Seagate Barracuda 750GB

Big companies rarely take chances, and Seagate—the world’s largest drive maker—is no exception. It has always played second fiddle to Hitachi when it comes to the 7,200rpm hard drive capacity war, and even though Seagate drives are reliable and semi-speedy, they’ve never delivered industry-leading or even outstanding performance. Well, those days are over.
