While readily available cloud storage eliminates the need for large storage capacities on laptops, some professionals must take their data with them. An external hard drive (HDD) is a good way to take information mobile, but bumps on the road can be hard on the delicate gadgets. That's not the case with a 2TB HDD from Transcend that features military grade shock protection.
The Transcend 2TB drive connects to a Mac, Linux, or Windows laptop via USB 3.0 for fast data transmission. The system mounts it as a standard HDD and it works just like any internal drive. Those needing high-level 256-bit encryption or data compression have that functionality at hand with the included Transcend Elite software.
This HDD is not battery powered, but most laptops with a powered USB drive will be able to run the Transcend plug-free. There is a clever button that can reconnect a properly ejected drive without having to unplug and replug the HDD.
The drive is perfect for implementing a backup system to keep laptop information safe. A button on the Transcend performs an incremental backup when pressed. This device should meet the needs of the most demanding mobile professional.
