3. Seagate GoFlex Desk: On the looks department the GoFlex Desk doesn’t score big but who cares when you get the portability and performance in the same package. This is one good package which is certainly priced right. The GoFlex Desk comes with a innovative dock which converts the Hard Disk to a superfast USB 3.0 device if you are interested in one. This Hard Disk comes with a Memeo Backup software for free, which lets you backup the data in the Disk and check for some errors. The Memeo also backs up all your data time to time in case you update the disk frequently. On the downside, the GoFlex Desk doesn’t come with any shockfroof or waterproof claims as compared to the others. Personally, I’d like to have a disk which won’t get apart in pieces when it falls from my table but here it is.
4. ioSafe Solo G3: This one is made to “Survive the Hell”. Everything cannot withstand the heats and colds along with other extremities of the mighty nature. The ioSafe Solo G3 can withstand 1,500 Fahrenheit temperature and can survive the biggest floods from anywhere, at least the manufacturers say so. The Solo G3 is a big step from its older sister Solo G having USB 3.0 compatibility out of the box. The Solo G3 comes with a fan-less design and weights a frigggin’ ton and so as its price, yes you heard it right. The ioSafe Solo G3 weights around 17 pounds and costs as high as $600 for the highest spec model.
