Western Digital My Passport Elite, Capacity: 500GB or 1TB

Why we like it: Both this 500GB model and its 1TB sibling provide big capacity in a space-saving size.

The Western Digital My Passport Elite SE comes with your choice of 500GB (shown) or 1TB of capacity. For a 2.5-inch device, that's an impressive combination of portability and storage space. Either version of the My Passport Elite features an LED gauge on the front to track available storage capacity--an especially helpful feature if you use multiple drives.

Though the My Passport Elite is a USB 2.0-only drive, it comes with versatile WD SmartWare software and a low-profile docking station. The 500GB model costs $130, the 1TB version, $179.
