    The Western Digital drive proved to be the most awkward drive to setup, requiring assorted jumper shenanigans to get our PC to even recognise the drive. Performance-wise however, it came out on top

    Plextor PX-760A review

    8  

    A drive burning DVDs at 18x would surely explode into a million pieces - or so we thought. Plextor's PX-760A certainly generates the sort of noise that would suggest such a catastrophe, but it's admirably shy of vibration.

    A portable DVD drive like this one from Plextor has obvious advantages,even for desktop users. If you only need to burn DVDs once in a while,it makes sense to get a pocket-sized drive that you can slide into adrawer when you don't need it

    You can argue about processors and hard drives until you're blue in the face, but what really matters in a media centre is purely superficial. It's got to look fantastic if you're putting it near your TV...

    Maxtor OneTouch II review

    9  

    Compared with the super-slim LaCie Mobile Hard Drive, the Maxtor OneTouch II is something of a brick - maybe even a breezeblock. For a start, it's eight times as heavy as the LaCie model, and needs its own AC power supply.

    First, the big perk of this external hard drive: out of the box, it's incredibly quick and easy to get going. The software pre-installed onthe Ethernet Mini disk allows you to configure the basics quickly: justplug the drive into your USB port...

    We're told that content is king. But, if you haven't got anywhere to store it, the boundless information ideal is nothing but a pipedream. This box sits on your network and acts as somewhere to store content

    Buffalo DriveStation review

    An external hard drive as a home entertainment essential? There's no wireless network support, no audio or video line-outs and certainly no controls to play any media files stored on the drive
