Which External Hard Drive?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi, I am looking for a USB 3.0 External hard drive. I need one that is very reliable. It will be used for pictures and videos and other stuff.

So far, I have these in mind:

For the amazon link, I am looking at the 2TB.

I was originally thinking of getting the 500GB Adata, but then I saw the 640GB.
And then yesterday, I saw the Seagate 2TB on amazon for about the same price. It sounds good from the reviews. But, I dont know, I cant find any reviews online, and the price seems to good to be true...

I added the the seagate and WD because I heard they are good brands for external, and I picked the 2 with the best reviews.
So, which external hard drive should I get?

For the space to price ratio and reliability, this is probably the best option:



I have one and use it pretty regularly for backups and storage and have had no issues whatsoever.


Here's an HD Tune I ran on it a couple of months ago when I got it:
