What's the best Portable Hard Drive?
Prerequisites include USB 3.0, bus powered and at least 1TB storage.
I know this is a vague question, so I'll split it into categories:
Which portable hard drive is the most rugged?
Which portable hard drive has the best read/write performance?
Which portable hard drive has the longest longevity?
Which portable hard drive has the strongest hardware encryption?
Which portable hard drive comes with the best non-trial software?
Since the portable storage relies on whatever HDD it uses, are portable hard drives more likely to fail if they come from unreliable or sketchy manufactures?
Also, will all hard drives spin up to USB 3.0 speeds regardless of 5400 or 7200RPM?
Please also merit some of these hard drives I have come across:
BUFFALO MiniStation Extreme
Samsung S2 (I'm not sure if this is USB 3.0 - some sources give conflicting data)
WD My Passport
