EZQuest’s new line of USB 2.0 hard drives are available in 40, 60, 80, 120 and even 250GB. The Cobra 250 GB USB 2.0 drive we tested delivered the superb transfer rate of 470 MB/S. Cobra 250 GB worked smoothly as our video drive when we were using Avid Xpress Pro. By the way, if your system has only USB 1, then consider buying an AdaptecUSB 2 Upgrade Kit. We tried AdaptecUSB 2 Upgrade Kit for our EZQuest Cobra review and it worked quite well.
The Good News: This drive is easy to use and immediately recognized by OS.
The Wish List: It’s a little bit bulky and could use a little downsizing.
The Bottom Line: If you are looking for an external hard drive that has everything you need at a relatively low price, go with EZQuest’s Cobra USB 2.
