While not as fast as internal IDE or SCSI drives, external drives are a faster solution than Flash Media, CD ROMs or other forms of portable media. They can also hold larger amounts of data.
Since an external drive is going to be used as a backup or portable drive, it needs to be secure and robust. Another good feature would be quietness because this drive, more than likely, will sit on your desk closer to your ears. SimpleTech's External USB 2.0 SimpleDrive with "Theft Prevention Slot" provides all of these features.
