When traveling with any type of electronics you want them to be protected. What good are they if you drop them and they break? This type of hard drive is usually used with a laptop so it is great that it has ample protection, actually more than ample protection. This drive features dual stage anti-shock technology, which meets the U.S. military drop-test standards MIL-STD-810F with advanced two-stage anti-shock technology. This means the data on the drive will be protected even if you drop the drive when it is on!
This is the perfect drive for anyone on the go that needs that type of protection for their drive. The software suite also a lot more than others we have seen and is actually made for the drive; it is not a 3rd party application. They offer the drive in capacities ranging from 160GB all the way up to 500GB. The 500GB drive is going for $112.99 on Geeks.com, which is a great price for all of the protection you get with the StoreJet. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Transcend StoreJet 25 Mobile 500GB External Hard Drive a 9 out of 10 score.
