Transcend StoreJet 25M3 Conclusion:
Overall I was quite impressed with this little drive. The small form factor and the durable MIL-spec enclosure combined to form an external drive that will serve you for years. While not always incredibly speedy in the synthetic benchmarks, the real-world performance when copying files to the disk revealed that it can easily hang with the big dogs. You might not win any benchmark wars with this little guy but you will definitely have your files backed up in a very reasonable amount of time!
In the end, aside from the slight issues I had with the included software, there really isn't anything here to complain about. The roughly $93 asking price is on-par with many other drives that don't offer the reliability, warranty, or speed that this Transcend StoreJet 25M3 offers. With 1 TB of storage on tap and a built-in compression tool you probably won't need another backup drive for years to come.
