If you’re like me and you really only trust SSD technology you should probably check out this 1TB Samsung external SSD. It is a little bit pricey for what you get however it is an SSD with USB 3.1 capable speeds. I have always been afraid to purchase normal hard drives whether their external or internal drives because I used to work in the shipping industry and I know how these things get beat up when they’re shipped from place to place. If you are familiar with SSD technology, you will know that they have no moving Parts which means they are a lot more durable, and since you are purchasing an external drive it’s probably a good idea to go with an SSD drive instead of a normal disk drive. With that being said I do want to bring up that you need to consider purchasing a normal drive if you plan on having an external drive unplugged for a long period( about a year or more). However, if you plan on accessing your data on your external drives on a regular basis and SSD is a great choice and a very durable one at that.
Another benefit of having an external SSD versus a normal hard drive is there going to be a lot smaller and have a lot less power draw. Something cool about this drive, in particular, is it comes with a 3-year warranty from Samsung so if you’re worried about that, then you’re set to go. One last thing that is kind of cool for the people that are privacy Savvy, you can encrypt this drive with AES 256-bit Hardware encryption. Check out this external drive on Amazon right now.
