★★★★ If you use a computer you need an external hard drive to store your files. Hitachi’s LifeStudio Plus is a 2 terabyte hard drive with an easyto-sync 4GB USB stick that magnetically snaps to the front of this funky-looking unit. The bulky drive (about 1kg) stays at home while the USB stick carries the files you access frequently.
