The next size up for consumer desktop drives is about the same height but twice as wide, to accommodate more than one platter-based hard drive mechanism in the chassis. External SSDs offer at least twice that speed and now, often much more, with typical results on our benchmark tests in excess of 400MBps for the slowest ones. WD’s My Book external hard drive comes in an 8TB size and includes all the reliability, performance, and convenience you could want in a personal storage solution. They also seem to have a lot of drives that use SMR, which won't be a lot of fun to work with if I'm concerned about my drive's longevity and/or I decide to delete some of the backups to replace them with updated data.

Instantly add space for more files, consolidate all of your files to a single location, or free up space on your computer's internal drive to help improve performance. Available in capacities up to 16TB when we reviewed it, it has since added even higher volume, up to a monstrous 40TB. As a rule, portable drives get their power from the computer to which you connect them, through the interface cable, so there's no need for a wall outlet or a power cord/brick. But I'd like it to be of decent quality, if possible, and my budget is limited, so spending a ton more to put my own together in a case is a very poor option (and my luck with bring-your-own-drive external cases is terrible anyway). Sure, they might not be as lightning-fast as those fancy NAND SSDs, but when it comes to sheer storage space, they’re hard to beat.And don't forget to explore our recommendations for the best external SSDs as well, if you need more speed than a platter-based drive can offer. The handsome gray and black case houses two spinning-platter drives—4TB each in the 8TB version we tested. So, if you’ve got a top-notch NAS device for your home or business, going with these Seagate drives is a pretty smart move.

You can also hot-swap drives, easily sliding an old one out and a new one in with no tools, without turning the LaCie unit off. As a bonus, a desktop drive that supports Thunderbolt might also come with additional DisplayPort and USB connections that allow you to use the drive box as a hub for your keyboard, mouse, monitor, and other peripherals.Seagate’s BarraCuda lineup is like the heavyweight champ in the world of hard drives, and it’s got some pretty good reasons to claim that title. The Seagate Expansion desktop drive provides extra storage for your ever-growing collection of files. Still, while external SSDs are cheaper than they were a few years ago (see the best we've tested at the preceding link), they're far from a complete replacement for spinning drives. If you're addicted to downloading videos and snapping up every game you can find online, chances are you need inexpensive, voluminous storage to house it all.
