    I am happy with Seagate GoFlex Ultra portable external HD. I got it from WalMart for 35 bucks 2 years ago. :apple:

    Thanks guys. Anyone own the freecom mobile drive mg portable hard drive? I really like the look of this. I own three other freecom hard drives none have let me down in the last 5 years. I'm skeptical of buying this ultra slim hd and I can't find many reviews.

    Gets mostly good reviews, one guy had a busted USB socket - seems to be
    an issue on a few other Freecom 2.5 drives !
    Looks great but it's expensive for a portable 5400rpm.
    I would try to find a 7200rpm version or buy a Hitachi 7200rpm and a USB3.0
    enclosure from IcyBox or similar, save yourself 20-30 bucks.

    I just did this.
