Bmark: Those are all good choices but I went a different route and based on the fact that I use a maxed out Lenovo Yoga for my travel computer and my travel drives are the drives I use for permanent storage. I chose the Seagate Backup Plus Fast 4 TB drives, presently available on Amazon for $180 each. These drives use USB 3.0 and have maximum transfer rates of 220 MB/s. Not as fast as the SSDs, but I've found them to be fast enough that my workflow is pretty seemless. These drives are also a little larger, but certainly small enough for travel and they hold 4TB. The 2TB T3 is $800

The problem this article is attempting to address is the need for fast portable storage. I addressed that problem the way I discussed above and I thought that some people might find that information useful because my solution, although a little slower, is fairly fast and low priced for the amount of storage.

I would love to have the newer version, but its just too expensive and the focal length is not long enough. I have the older version with the longer zoom and it produces pretty good photos. From a usability perspective I would swear that the manufacturers never have any user testing. The menus are difficult to navigate and the modes difficult to understand.
