Arguably the world most portable drive in the MARKET
The good old portable storage concept turns a new leaf with the Transcend ESD200 portable solid-state drive (SSD).
It's the first I've seen that's based on a 1.8-inch internal drive, making it much more compact than traditional 2.5-inch-based counterparts. On top of that, it uses an SSD as storage and offers the best performance I've seen.
The new drive is not perfect, however. It offers a limited amount of storage space and is rather expensive, costing some $160 and $300 for 128GB and 256GB, respectively. Its software and backup feature are also mediocre at best.
Still, if you're looking for a super fast little portable drive to accompany your USB 3.0-enabled laptop, the new Transcend ESD200 is an easy recommendation. Those not caring about top speed but just larger drives -- both physically and in terms of capacity -- at lower costs
