the win­ner | G-Tech G-Dri ve ev ATC

Mac Format - - RATED -

The five drives we se­lected all had some very good points, and none were con­sid­ered poor buys. La­Cie’s Rugged RAID takes top hon­ours for per­for­mance, but at more than £300 it’s some­thing of a niche prod­uct for cre­ative pro­fes­sion­als. The StoreJet 100 from Tran­scend is good value at just £100 for 2TB of stor­age, but that ex­posed USB port is a real chink in its ar­mour. Buf­falo’s MiniS­ta­tion Ex­treme and the Freecom Tough Drive HDD only of­fer 1TB of stor­age, but they’ll pro­vide greater pro­tec­tion and good per­for­mance while still com­ing in at around £100 which is pretty good value.

How­ever, the clever two-piece de­sign of G-Tech’s G-Drive ev ATC gives you the best of both worlds. The all-ter­rain case (ATC) pro­vides re­ally strong pro­tec­tion when you need it most, but still gives you the op­tion of re­mov­ing the drive from the case for rou­tine dayto-day use.
