Western Digital 1TB .. the bigger they are, the harder they fall
Review of Western Digital Elements 1TB by richieyorke

Advantages: Huge storage space, easily portable, clean, smooth, chic
Disadvantages: Slow speed of loading and transferring, broke easily, blinking light

I was given this 1TB hard drive as a gift by my sister for Christmas this year. For starters, 1TB is equal to 1024 GB… and for those unfamiliar with such terms, an average movie is just under 1GB, and an average album of songs is around 100MB. So, roughly ... Read review

Purrs like a kitten but stings like a bee-mer
Review of Samsung 512GB SSD by SolidReviewer

Advantages: Faster than regular hard drives, consumes less power
Disadvantages: Expensive. Too expensive.

Let's start by saying that your buying an internal drive for a computer, from a very reliable brand: Samsung. It would be a different story if this hard drive had been made by a random company in Hong Kong and sent to you through air mail on eBay. If you ... Read review

Disadvantages: its not 2TB lol

This was a very good buy, a full TB of storage for a very reasonable price. The hard drive itself is quite small, slim and stylish, it fits in my laptop bag perfect so i always have it when i need it. It comes with the required cable to use it and has th ... Read review

Review of Samsung 840 Series MZ-7TD120 120 GB by blissman70

Advantages: Fast, easy to fit, robust and a good size
Disadvantages: none, unless you want lots of room for your tunes

I’m going to talk about the future, sort of, when it comes to the way that we get our information on and off our computers. (bare with me). What I am talking about is Hard Drives, or Hard Disc Drives, or HDD’s that sit in PC’s and store all the in ... Read review

High speed, high capacity desktop external hard drive
Review of Seagate Expansion Desktop Drive 2 TB by volcano

Advantages: High speed, high capacity, good price, good warranty on accessories
Disadvantages: bulky, need its own power supply

Introduction: A year ago I would never consider buying a high (TB) capacity external hard disk to backup data from my computers. I have two 500MB external hard drives (Seagate Expansion Portable Drive 500 GB USB3 and Verbatim Store 'n' Go Portable 500 ... Read review

Absolute delight to use - worthwhile upgrade or replacement
Review of HGST Travelstar 7K1000 HTS721010A9E630 1 TB by dobieg

Advantages: Inexpensive, easy to install, probably higher capacity and faster than original disk
Disadvantages: None spring immediately to mind

I do occasional ‘rescue work’ on customers’ laptop computers. A ‘regular’ came back to me the other week and asked if I could recover the hard disk on their daughter’s system (they are doing a masters degree, and had, for want of a better phrase “humped” ... Read review

Review of WD Elements SE Portable WDBABV0010BBK 1 TB by DanielP9690

Advantages: Good price for the storage, quiet
Disadvantages: Overheats due to poor design

The WD Elements comes with one of Western Digital's Caviar Green drives, which are known to be quite unreliable. Having said that, my current device has over 450 power on days. The read times are quite poor when trying to stream any HD content, but copyin ... Read review

A storage solution.
Review of HGST Touro Mobile MX3 HTOLMX3EA5001ABB 500 GB by Coloneljohn

Advantages: Ease of use. Relatively cheap now.
Disadvantages: None that I have found.

It all depends on just what you use your computer for I suppose. I feel that you can never have too much storage space and disc drives are increasing in size and the price is falling nicely. What once cost hundreds now only costs in the tens of pounds. ... Read review

Super fast, super sized and very quiet... What more could you ask for in an external hard drive? USB 3.0? Check! I brought this hard drive from a shop on ebay for about £70 which I felt wasn't too bad for such a large hard drive and more so one with US ... Read review
