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.

The Hitachi Touro Mobile Pro offers around 120MS/s read and write speed with its USB 3.0 interface. But the real standout is the price and included cloud storage.

The Touro Mobile Pro external hard drive from Hitachi is a fine solution if you need to take some files with you from place to place, and while it has less connection options than its competitors it also has a lessened price tag, which makes it a good trade off.
