Why do I need an external hard drive?

In a word? Convenience. External hard drives are the easy way to add extra storage to a PC. They are simple plug and play devices and you don't have to worry about opening the case. And of course, with portable hard drives you can take your files and media downloads with you wherever you go.

How do external hard drives work?

Most of us will have used a flash drive. These drives are designed to be more permanent and have far larger capacities that flash drives. Most external hard drives are connected via USB though there are some wireless models. You do have a couple of options when looking at external hard drives:

Desktop hard drives

These, as the name suggests, are designed to sit on your desk and act as a permanent additional hard drive for your PC. Desktop hard drives tend to be larger and can massively increase the storage capacity of your computer as they can be as large 12TBs. This makes them ideal for business users and home users who have large movie collections.

Portable hard drives

Most of us, when looking for an external hard drive, will want a light, portable model. And here at Ebuyer.com we have a large range of portable hard drives. And, though they typically have lower capacities than the desktop variety, they still have more than enough space from most of us and can easily store hundreds of videos and thousands of other media files. And, for those who value speed above everything else, there is also the option of portable hard drives.

Choosing your new external hard drive

Although storage capacity is probably the most important consideration when choosing a new external hard drive there are other things to consider. The interface, power source, and, of course, the price all need to be factored into your decision. To help you narrow your search you can use the handy filter features on the left of the screen to select the different options that are available.

Whichever external hard drive you choose you can be confident that you will get the best deal online right here at Ebuyer.com. Take advantage of our low prices and order today.
