Storage, like money, is never enough. Keep in mind these words, when you choose your hard disc. Fortunately is the choice wide: you can choose a simple SATA hard drive, buy an external USB hard drive, or purchase a used HDD. However, the latter option is the least preferential because hard drives do not get better as time passes.
Just note that the choice of USB external hard disk and desktop hard drive HDD SATA should be made according to different criteria. External hard drives, which can be bought everywhere, are used for information transfer. The most important things here are convenience and capacity. At the same time desktop SATA hard drive will determine the speed of the OS loading, as well as reading all the data stored on the PC.
Therefore, if you decide to buy a portable hard disk, you must take into account its capacity. External HDD is used solely for information transfer, respectively, the more you can transfer, the better. Often, external hard drives are used also for auto save files. In this case, a large capacity is also a benefit, since the more backups can be saved, the more sure you are, that you lose nothing. The same rule applies in the case, if you decide to buy a desktop SATA hard drive. Gradually, even dozens of terabytes of memory are filled. It is barely economic to acquire another expensive HDD or external hard drive. Therefore, it is clever to spend more and buy a significant volume SATA HDD.
A very important indicator is its rotation speed (RPM aka Revolutions per minute). Desktop or portable USB hard drive must have a high speed. However, external HDD drives are not so particular about the speed as their desktop counterparts. The fact is that the rotation speed of the disc governs many options. It makes no sense to describe how annoying can be "freeze", which can be also caused by HDD. Therefore, buying desktop HDD SATA, you should pay attention to RPM (speed of rotation of the disk).
Of course, if you decide to buy a portable hard drive or a desktop counterpart, the price is one of the fundamental factors. Just note that non-portable SATA hard drive will cost less than portable hard drives with similar characteristics.
This is due to the complexity of manufacturing technology. USB external hard drive, which can be bought for different purposes, is bound to undergo a variety of external influences during transportation. In addition to protection, portable hard drive is must be more and more compact for easy transportation. SATA hard drive cannot meet all the requirements above.
Naturally, this choice is not so easy in the absence of proper experience. Before you buy an external hard drive, you should check reviews and tests. It is useful to read user reviews and opinion of professionals. Choosing SATA hard drives, you should be guided by the same principles. Fortunately, it is easy to find reviews of SATA hard drives and any other storage devices in the Internet. This information will help you to choose the best hard drive, the price of which can be quite high.
