What is a desktop hard drive?

As the name immediately suggests, these are larger capacity storage drives which sit on the desktop and are used in conjunction with your computer set-up. Though desktop hard drives are larger than portable drives, they are still relatively compact and don't take up a huge amount of desk space.

Why you need a desktop hard drive

~These days we all live hectic lives and generate an incredible amount of digital content - so the simple answer is you need a desktop hard drive because of the incredible amount of extra storage space. With a desktop hard drive you'll be able to attach to a PC or laptop and store most, if not all, of your digital life.

These drives are available with much higher storage capacities than standard external hard drives and, whilst it is unlikely that the average user will need such a large amount for their archive of documents such as word processing or spreadsheets (etc), even a 'modest' 3TB drive will store full multimedia collections of photos, music and video and a very large amount of, say, visual design or video production or music production files etc.

How easy is it to transfer files?

It's really easy! In fact, backing up and transferring content couldn't be easier. In most cases you just drag and drop! To get the external hard drive set up, you connect it via USB, and this makes it simple to get things going. External hard drives are compatible with both PCs and Macs, though you may need to format first.

Security of desktop hard drives

Another excellent reason to invest in a desktop hard drive is for the added security they provide. You can back up all of your files and media to the drive and, in the event of your PC's hard drive being corrupted, you can easily recover everything from your desktop hard drive as it is actually stored there and not on the PC itself.

Some models of desktop hard drive have added layers of security such as encryption and password protection. It's worth looking at the individual specifications of the drives on our website to ensure that the model you are interested in has this kind of feature. It's probably essential if the drive is for use within a business, so that sensitive information contained on it can be accessed only by those who have the correct clearance.

Choose your drive

Here at Ebuyer we offer a wide range of desktop hard drives from leading manufacturers such as Seagate and Western Digital. And we also have a range of desktop NAS drives from brands such as Dribo. Each model has a different specification so be sure to choose a drive with sufficient storage to meet your requirements.

Check out the interface of the drive for compatibility with your machine as superfast USB 3.0and FireWire models are now available. With these interfaces you can download and transfer files incredibly quickly.

Order from Ebuyer

To find the right desktop hard drive for you, you can browse through the full range on offer from Ebuyer, or use the filter features on the left of the screen to narrow the search down by manufacturer, category and specification. In effect you can quickly sort by brand, price, interface and, of course, storage capacity to ensure you find the right hard drive for you.
