Computer getting full with all of your documents, pictures, and videos? Back it up! External hard drives are an excellent choice when you need something to hold more than your regular USB flash drive. There are some external hard drives that can hold up to 6 terabytes, which equates to 6,000 gigabytes! I’m going to list below my top three external hard drives:
1. Seagate Seven
According to my research, this external hard drive is ideal for MacBooks. It has a capacity of 500-750 GB, which can hold up to 100 full length movies or a thousand song or pictures. It’s one of the smallest hard drives, having a very slim frame. It’s durable enough to travel around with you in your back pack! Like any other Seagate product, this will work wonderfully along with downloading the Seagate Dashboard.
2. LaCie Rugged Raid
Need a hard drive that can keep up with your rugged lifestyle? Well look no further. The Lacie Rugged Raid is perfect for being resistant to dust, water, and a 5-foot drop. It has been crush tested and proven to hold files after an SUV ran over it. The capacity can hold up to 4 terabytes, but it is a little big in size. This device weighs 1.8 pounds, which is on the heavy end for external hard drives. This devices offers lights at the USB port, AC adapter, and Thunderbolt connection.
3. Seagate Backup Plus Desktop Drive
Can’t decide on a capacity? This device offers a wide range of sizes (2 TB, 3 TB, 4 TB, 5 TB, 6 TB and 8 TB). The device can work for either Mac or Windows products. It can aid your social media by holding your photos, also by downloading photos from your social media sites. The only downside that it is larger in size than most external hard drives, having a 3.5 internal hard drive. Also ideal for a user who is new to using an external hard drive by being easily functional and an affordable price point.
