I have been using Nexstar ‘toaster drives’ at home for around 3 years now starting with a USB 2.0 version and then adding an eSATA/USB 2.0 combo. They are fast, easy to use and now also come in the USB 3.0 variety:
The Nexstar Hard Drive Dock SuperSpeed
This week two Nexstar USB 3.0 external hard drive devices passed GIGABYTE USB 3.0 motherboard compatibility testing; the first being the Nexstar Hard Drive Dock SuperSPeed above and the second being the Nexstar 3 SuperSpeed.

Both devices can be found on the usb3motherboard.com website.
