Hard drives are pretty important. I mean, everything you download, backup, update, install, save, etc on your computer takes up space on it.
Without it, you couldn't use your computer at all! And with it filling up, you're not going to be able to save anything new or update your software, etc.
But you can prevent that! But what're your options?
You could do it the hard way... You open up your PC, install a brand new INTERNAL hard drive, screw it in, hook up all the cables, go into your computer's BIOS settings and make sure it's recognized, basically you gotta be a computer whiz.
Sounds fun, right?
Hmm... which one sounds better to you?
External hard drives are SOOO much easier to use!
For one, because they don't install INSIDE of your computer, you're obviously saving tons of time and hassle not having to pop open your computer and figure out all those cables. But what about when you move onto a new PC? Internal hard drives are a pain to carry over.
But with a USB external drive? You just unplug it from "Computer A" and plug it into "Computer B". Voila! Done!
It functions the EXACT same as the hard drive built into your computer. You can save programs, pictures, music, videos, documents, anything! It's just like expanding a warehouse!
If you're saying "But Steve, I've used external drives... they're GREAT! But they're so SLOW compared to internal ones!"
That used to be true. Until USB 3.0!
At first nobody believed it was possible, but now years later USB 3.0 is STILL impressing everyone.
USB 3.0 has been unchallenged for YEARS now!
They simply can't make USB go faster, so you know you're getting the best!
But USB 3.0 isn't just faster. It also comes with some MAJOR technological improvements!
For the first time EVER on USB, you can send AND receive data at the same time!
What's that mean for you?
Put files on your drive WHILE moving some off at the same time!
It's essentially like a MASSIVE flash drive... except the price per gigabyte is WAY better! You'd need over 30 flash drives that were 16GB big to store this much space! That's like $240 in flash drives!
Ooooh! And this is perfect for backups too!
You probably have tons of documents, spreadsheets, family photos, and music that you just can't afford to lose - Why not back 'em up onto this super awesome portable hard drive?
See, if something happens to your computer (like a power surge) all those INTERNAL pieces are gonna get fried. But because you have your data stored EXTERNALLY with this, they'll be safe! You need to make sure your YEARS of data aren't always at risk - this is the way to do it!
And This Is a 5-Star Reviewed Hard Drive!
Everywhere I look online, this thing is getting RAVE reviews. The only bad part is the price that everyone else is charging!
Look at these listings from other reputable stores:
Ssure, the prices are reasonable when you consider how great this external drive is, but don't you want the BEST deal available? Of course!
I'VE GOT IT FOR WAY LESS!
I know my supplier is going to be out of these soon! Get them while they're still available!
