Portable hard drives are different from regular external hard drives in the sense that portable drives don’t require external power. Just take a portable hard drive, slide it in your pocket or bag along with a short data cable and you’re good to go. This makes life easy for most of us who move to and fro between our work and home and always need to carry our important files along with us. Due to the recent volatility in the Dollar-Rupee exchange rate, the price of components has gone up but nevertheless it’s still not too late to get a portable hard drive at a reasonable price. And this test should help you make an informed decision. All the drives that we received for the test were USB 3.0 drives and one drive that also had a Thunderbolt interface. We’ve performed quite a few tests to gauge the performance of each drive. And since most people have different capacity requirements, we’ve grouped the drives into two simple categories. The first category contains drives that provide up to 500GB of storage space. And for users who need more we have the other category consisting of drives ranging from one terabyte to two terabytes. Without further ado, let’s take an in-depth look at both categories so that its easier for you to pick one that best fulfills your storage needs.
