Their total storage capacities are limited only by their number of available bays and the capacities of the drives you put in them.

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. Right now, the fastest connection type in wide use on hard drives is Thunderbolt 3, which is handy assuming you have a newer laptop or desktop with a Thunderbolt 3 port.I currently focus my testing efforts on 3D printers, pro and productivity displays, and drives and SSDs of all sorts. These connection types are ever in flux, but these days, most external hard drives use a flavor of USB, or in rare cases, Thunderbolt.

Western Digital is one of the most trusted names in data storage, and trust is vital for a device that will hold so much of your valuable memories, media, and information. Sporting a tasteful silver-and-black chassis, the LaCie Mobile Drive (2022) is a mildly redesigned version of the company's external hard drive that we reviewed in March 2019. It must also be plugged into the wall with a power adapter, so it’s not the easiest to tote around to different places. Both Thunderbolt interfaces piggyback on a USB Type-C connector (not all USB Type-C ports support Thunderbolt, though) and offer blazing peak throughput of up to 40GBps.

Over the years, I have reviewed iPad and iPhone science apps, plus the occasional camera, laptop, keyboard, and mouse. A collection of spinning drives configured with a RAID level designed for faster data access can approximate the speeds of a basic SSD, while you should consider a drive with support for RAID levels 1, 5, or 10 if you're storing really important data that you can't afford to lose. Some in the storage industry refer to these (as well as smaller-capacity externals as a whole) as DAS—for "direct attached storage"—to distinguish them from NAS, or network attached storage, many of which are also multi-bay devices that can take two or more drives that you supply. It holds 8TB of data (up to 10TB capacity is available) and doubles as a USB hub for connecting and charging other devices. ports on the front of the glossy black case make it easy to plug in a phone, tablet, or anything else that uses a USB-A connection.

I need an 8 TB external hard drive to back up a potentially failing disk and possibly use for backups for other machines. 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. They're mostly intended for professional use in editing studios, surveillance control rooms, and the like.These products are separated into the correct waste flow at our local depots and send directly to government approved WEEE recycling plants. 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 Western Digital My Book, now available in capacities up to a whopping 22TB, can hold thousands of hours of video, or millions of MP3s or photos. 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.

A faster hard drive means shorter load times, but the difference isn’t significant enough for speed to be a considerable factor. OTG connectorUSB - C interface cable + USB - A to C connector, directly connect the drive to your mobile phone and access your files immediately;4.If you’re looking for a quick and easy backup process, it comes with WD Backup software for Windows and is compatible with Time Machine for Macs.
