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. As a hard drive, you can count on the Backup Plus Hub to provide dependable storage and quick transfer speeds. How an external drive connects to your PC or Mac is second only to the type of storage mechanism it uses in determining how fast you'll be able to access data. In addition to their physical shape differences, USB ports on the computer side will variously support USB 3. As it will generally be used in an office or server room setting, it lacks any ruggedness features to speak of—the protection it offers is from human threats.

Only reviews that feature the label "Verified Review" have been checked to ensure that the author actually used or purchased the product. Finding yourself with more saved games and downloaded content than your PlayStation or Xbox console’s internal storage can hold? With a good mix of capacity, pricing, and performance, it's a shoo-in as an Editors' Choice pick for desktop external hard drives. 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. The display of third-party trademarks and trade names on this site does not necessarily indicate any affiliation or the endorsement of PCMag.If you appreciate the gamer aesthetic, the P10 is an obvious choice over more vanilla offerings like the WD My Passport or the Seagate Backup Plus Ultra Touch. Over the years, I have reviewed iPad and iPhone science apps, plus the occasional camera, laptop, keyboard, and mouse.

Adding 8TB of storage should tide you over for years and years to come (and it’s the highest-capacity drive a PS4 can support). Because there is no spinning platter or moving magnetic head, if you bump the SSD while you're accessing its data, there is no risk that your files will become corrupted and unreadable. If you conservatively figure an average game size of 100GB, the 4TB version tested here can hold about 40 titles, serving as the stylish main repository of your collection for years to come, and for a much more modest outlay than you'd spend on an SSD of similar capacity.In the case of these and single-platter-drive products, you're not meant to swap out the drive or drives inside. You don't have to worry about the differences among these three USB specs when looking at ordinary hard drives, though. As a desktop hard drive, it is not USB-powered, but instead must be plugged into its included AC adapter.
