Best Portable Hard Drives

These pocket-size drives are great for backup or for storing your multimedia file collection.

Iomega eGo, Capacity: 500GB

Why we like it: It rules our Top 10 Portable Hard Drives chart.

The Iomega eGo 500GB Portable Hard Drive performed well across the board in our PCWorld Labs tests, earning it first place on our Top 10 Portable Hard Drives chart.

The eGo is fast and it has a unique design (read: it's red and shiny). This $100 drive has FireWire 400 and 800 ports to complement a USB 2.0 port, and it comes equipped with two pieces of useful software--Retrospect Express and Iomega QuikProtect--to simplify backups.
