Western Digital Portable External Hard Drives 1TB Make Screaming Unnecessary
There I sat for what seemed like the hundredth time, as my computer screen went black and then shut itself off. Aaaaauuuugggghhhh I wanted to scream as I headed to the internet on the other and only computer turned on and running in the office at the time to look at portable external hard drive choices!
Our computers were about one year old, so I knew that wasn't the problem. The problem was too many memory hogs all tying to start and wanting them to work at the same time -all located on our desktop.
This experience was not new to me because I had already gotten an external hard drive for our other computers because of the same issue. The results were beautiful!
In the business of running multiple businesses I have a certain criteria that I use for any hardware or software purchase.
- Easy to Use & Set Up
- Compact size and light weight
- Company reputation in good standing
- Company longevity
- Company return policy is fair and doesn't use hidden fee tactics to make sales
- Company pioneer or leader in that technology area (not as vital a criteria as the others, but important)
- Company conducts regular product testing
- Company product support - Is it reliable, friendly, and efficient?
How I Felt BEFORE I Got Our External Hard Drive!
Western Digital Portable External Hard Drives 1TB - Learn About Your Hard Drive Choice!
What I Knew:
This is my third or fourth purchase of portable external hard drives, so I already had done my research on the company and knew I was going to look at Western Digital 1 TB portable external hard drives.
What I already knew about Western Digital was that they had established themselves in 1970, and had become a world-wide leader in hard drives for internal, external, portable and shared storage applications.
I also knew that WD hard drives have uses in desktops and notebook computers (we have 5), mobile and handheld devices (we have 8), corporate networks, and also home entertainment equipment (lots of that too).
What I didn't Know:
Because security and storage is so vital to our companies, I already felt safe knowing that our external hard drive was going to be safe and secure. but, I can't speak to this because it hasn't been an issue.
The devices we purchased were so easy to use, and the lack of downloadable software made it so simple that I hadn't had to use their telephone or online support systems, so I can't speak to those two things.
Buying And Liking Western Digital Portable And Desktop External Hard Drives 1TB
What I Especially Like:
Taking pictures is my 'thing,' so I wanted a storage system that could handle my photo storage needs without complicated instructions or having to buy a secondary software or device. This hard drive also had to load our software so we could take it off the desktop.
Cost was under $150.00 - Not my main criteria, but certainly a good one!
The small and compact size and weight makes it easy to bring and travel with our laptops, making any seminar participation or travel to show off photos about as complicated as putting on jewelry.
I am a light sleeper and the use of bright lights at night can wake me up and keep me awake, so the use of a rear LED light was especially appealing to me! Plus, the bonus of the quietness of the device meant that when I fly I am not bothering the person next to me, the seminar attendee next to me, or having the child next to me looking over my shoulder while I try to write a report, because they hear the 'noise.' I love kids, just not the ones who like to look over my shoulder in close spaces.
It's fast - The Western Digital Portable 1 TB External Hard Drives are fast for speedy data transfers. I wish I could be in less of a hurry, but really don't think that will EVER happen. Once I finished the set-up for it, I enjoyed the speed of it - even though it's a USB 2.0.
What I am most excited about is that not only are there portable external hard drives, but there are also Western Digital 1 TB Desktop External Hard Drives. Life is Good!
