This review is from: BUFFALO MiniStation 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive HD-PCF1.0U3BB Black
Pros: Fast, quiet, small, and reliable.
Cons: None, unless you don't like the way the blue activity light works.
Other Thoughts: A nice case that fits this HDD is the "Drive Logic DL-53 Portable Soft Pouch".READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works fine out of the box. Comes with a convenient USB extension cable.
Cons: No self destruct. Only 5 characters are available for password entry. Allows weak passwords (as few as 4 digits). As a result, given enough time the password could be cracked.
Other Thoughts: This design looks like a copy, a toy version, of another brand that I can't mention here. The user interface is very similar but the features are crippled. The Corsair is an impressive toy, however if you want to sleep well knowing your data is really safe then you will have to spend about 3 times as much.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Extremely quiet CD playback (practically silent).
Cons: It's not infallible; it skips when trying to play my most beat up old CDs (which some other players can still play).
Other Thoughts: I use this mainly for DVD data discs, where the drive performance is pretty much average; the unusual quietness of the CD playback was a nice surprise.READ FULL REVIEW
