Samsung G2 portable hard drive
Samsung G2 portable hard drive (500GB, black)
Editors' rating: 4 out of 5
The good: Inexpensive, low power consumption; small footprint; bedazzled case design; three-year warranty.
The bad: Included backup and password protection software doesn't support Mac OS.
The bottom line: With its embossed cover and rainbow of colorful designs, the Samsung G2 Portable hard drive is a consumer-focused external hard drive that offers the most basic plug-and-play storage functionality. You don't get many extras, but impressive benchmark scores, a competitive cost-per-gigabyte, and a generous three-year warranty demonstrate its core competency and earn this drive our CNET recommendation.
