Looking for a USB 3.0 External Harddisk

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hey folks.

 

I have a crappy Toshiba Canvio USB 3.0 harddisk and it always looses connection while transferring over USB 3.0 (not 2.0)

 

So I am in the market for a new USb 3.0 external harddisk.

 

I am thinking of this.

Any better ones out there?

I would advice you not to buy that HDD. Everyone I know has had issues with WD external drives. Myself included

I would suggest
This is built to be rugged. I have one myself. I use it as my travel HDD (Military Drop Standards , triple protection)

I am also using this

I haven't had any problems so far and it comes with a 5 year warranty. But I don't know if I can recommend this as I don't know anyone with the same disk.
