Read Write Speed
Maxtor OneTouch wins the battle, it's the best among the 4 with great performance and a delicious price.

Oh disappointed with WD Passport. x_x Oh WD...come on..with 20.00 minutes of writing a 10GB file, who is going to buy your hard drives??? It's not even half the write speed of Maxtor OneTouch. Okay la...for those who want to only read files from your portables, I recommend you...WD Passport!!! However, please don't write anything on it. Just read, for god sake.
