How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

There are a lot of portable hard drives out there, some of which are cheaper and offer higher-capacity options than the HItachi Touro Mobile Pro. What the Touro Mobile Pro has on those is speed: Unlike most portable or laptop drives, the Touro Mobile Pro spins at 7200 RPM, making it a great option if you frequently back up large files on the go. The main downside is the drive's (original) maximum capacity of 750GB, but there are few other high-speed drives this portable, and at under $90 for the 500GB version, it's priced competitively with some slower drives.
