Why do I need an external hard drive?
In a word? Convenience. Hard drives that are external 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 of these hard drives are connected via USB though there are some wireless models. You do have a couple of options:
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 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.
