No External Power Source
Portable external hard drives, in industry terms, are called “plug-and-play.” Plug and play means you can simply connect the drive to your USB/Firewire port, and you are ready to start dragging and dropping files. You do not need an additional power source like you do on a desktop unit.
Great for On-the-Go
Ideally, compact portable hard drives can travel with you. Many come in fashionably thin styles and often have a rugged casing that can withstand accidental drops. Slip a USB portable hard drive into your laptop case or even your pocket—they are THAT small.
