The 500GB Expansion Portable Hard Drive from Seagate offers an ideal way to store your critical data. The drive's USB 3.0 interface allows for a transfer rate up to 4.8 Gb/s. It's also bus-powered, so there's no bulky power adapter to deal with. The drive even comes with a USB 3.0 cable so you can get started as soon as you open the box.

Portability is this unit's main selling point, though. The slim form factor and lightweight casing make this drive an ideal companion for laptops and Ultrabooks, as it will never weigh you down.
