    We've seen hybrid drives before. But what we have here is a bit different - a separate Flash and 1TB magnetic drive in one enclosure.

    Western Digital Caviar Green 3TB SATA 3Gb/s review

    8  

    If you're looking for a large drive with a ridiculous amount of capacity (formatted you're looking at 2.72TB), and don't mind paying a little bit over the odds for it, this is the drive for you.

    Conventional wisdom says solid state drives (SSDs) beat traditional hard drives silly in any performance metric you care to mention. How can the likes of Western Digital's latest magnetic spinner, the Caviar Black 1TB WD1002FAEX, therefore hope to compete?

    One day, SSDs will be both fast and cheap. Until then, the VelociRaptor delivers an attractive blend of capacity, performance and (relative) value.

    WD My Passport Essential 320GB review

    WD My Passport Essential 320GB review

    8  

    With 320GB of space this drive is great value. Its compact design is supposed to resemble that of a small notebook, which keeps it in the same theme as the larger My Book hard drives. The difference is this device houses a 2.5-inch laptop drive, which spins at 5400rpm.

    This is the third version of Western Digital’s My Passport Studio pocket drive, and it should appeal to anyone who needs a drive for backing up data on the road. Just slip it in your suitcase and away you go.
