Transcend Portable Hard Drive Review
If you take keeping your data safe and secure very seriously then this military grade portable hard drive could be for you.
The Transcend StoreJet 25M3 comes in 1TB and 2TB sizes and uses a three stage protection system to keep your data safe.
Powered purely by a USB port the StoreJet uses USB 3.0 for high speed data transfer although it is also compatible with USB 2.0 as well.
Connecting to a Windows PC, Mac OS or even a Xbox One is easy. A One touch auto-backup option is available for computer backup using the supplied Transcend Elite software.
|Available Sizes||1TB and 2TB|
|Compatability||Windows, Mac,XBOX One|
|Plug and Play||Yes|
|Portable (USB Powered)||Yes|
|USB 3.0||Yes, with USB 2.0 backwards compatibility|
|Data Transfer Speed||625 Megabytes Per Second|
Even though the 25M3 is designed with durability in mind the drive itself still manages to look pretty slick.
The outer sleeve is made of silicone to absorb vibration but it also keeps the drive from slipping about on your desktop.
The hard case around the drive is designed to prevent to take the brunt of any impact while the drive itself is protected by a suspension damper system.
The Storejet 25M3 has met the U.S. Military’s shock tests which means the drive should be able to withstand falls from four or five feet.
The warranty from Transcend is one year as standard but this is increased to a three year limited warranty once you register the product.
The 2.5″ Sata hard drive inside the StoreJet is certainly one of the quickest portable hard drives, although it is a 5400rpm drive it compares well against faster 7200rpm drives.
Connecting via the USB 3.0 obviously makes amassive difference to transfer times but the drive is still compatible with USB 2.0 connectors.
The Transcend SoreJet 25M3 offers great performance at a low cost, a combination that is hard to beat.
The OneTouch Backup button on the top of the drive once enabled will enable the easy backup of specific files or folders, initial setup of this feature is more involved than it possibly needs to be.
The Transcend Elite software supplied with the Storejet is functional but a little clunky and under-whelming. Although it does have features that enables you to encrypt files or folders as well as backing up files to a Google Drive server.
Transcend StoreJet 25M3 Drive Summary
A fast USB 3.0 portable hard drive encased in a rugged casing to keep your data safe. Data transfer speeds are amongst the fastest for 4800rpm drives and the pricing is very competetive.
OneTouch Backup system is a good idea but the software bundled with the project is slightly disappointing.
