  • How does this compare to the already proven “Rugged” hard drive by Lacie?

    The Lacie sports an even more protected enclosure and only costs about $10 more with the same similar specs.

    • Hi Kevin and thanks for stopping by. Every media source we can think of…esp the most widely followed like Macworld…have proclaimed the OTG as we like to call it the fastest portable drive on the market. So considering that fact, the On The Go wins that round. Then, for a completely unbiased take, why not ask people on Twitter, a blog of our own, etc. which brand storage they prefer? Watching TweetDeck all day here, I can tell you what I see has the scales tipped in a certain direction… ;-)
