Iomega eGo, Capacity: 500GB
Why we like it: It rules 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.
