The Maxtor OneTouch 4 Plus external desktop drive isn't pretty. However, it has USB 2.0 and FireWire 400 ports and it's fast.

  • Summary: The Maxtor OneTouch 4 Plus is a desktop hard drive that offers a FireWire 400 connection, as well as the usual USB connection. If you have a FireWire 400 port on your computer and you transfer large files regularly, then this is an external hard drive worth a look.
  • Pros: FireWire 400 and USB 2.0 ports, fast transfer speeds for FireWire 400 connection, quiet, 256-bit AES encryption
  • Cons: Odd design
