They're small, and easy to transport, and I take mine with me anytime I leave the house (in case my house burns down). It's always in my Maxpedition Versipack until I need to use it. When I'm done, it goes right back in. My pack goes everywhere with me, thus I never have to remember to carry the drive with me for true backup protection.
The E-SATA connection is great, but I find the USB connection much more versatile. For example, my work computer doesn't have the E-SATA connection, but I can still use the USB to access my files from almost any computer in the world that has a USB jack.
Another thing I like about that Passport - it's powered by the USB cable, so no need to carry around an extra power cord.
