Transcend StoreJet 25 Mobile 250GB




I needed an external HDD to carry my data and was looking at the options since a week. I'd zeroed in on either Western Digital Passport or the Transcend StoreJet. Went to the electronic market to buy and saw that the WD Passport is almost on its way out. Nowhere was it available. Instead everywhere it was being replaced by WD Elements. The build quality was quite flimsy and somehow it didn't appeal to me. In the end I bought a Transcend StoreJet 25 Mobile 250GB USB 2.0.

I must say that I'm pretty impressed by this device. It has the toughest protection I've ever seen for an external drive (apparently meets the US Military drop test). Speed is impressive; a sustained 28 MB/s. Phew.. Thats fffffffaaaaaaaaast! It also has one-touch backup and sync button (works only in Windows with the StoreJet Elite software). The included Windows software lets you backup, sync, encrypt data etc.

Would I recommend this product? Certainly! :)

Performance is just really awesome.. and this prolly is the most value for money HDD out there. Cost me Rs.4100 + VAT.

Wow wow wow... Where did you get it? I have been looking for an external HDD for some time now. I was thinking on the lines of 160G which my friend said was @ 3.2K + .7K (disk + case)... This stuff beats that.
