I owned a USB 2.0 external 1TB hard drive a few years ago and it was huge with it’s own ac adapter. Now we have much more compact USB external drives. Take for example this Toshiba Canvio Basics 1TB Portable Hard Drive – Black (HDTB310XK3AA) that is about the size of a deck of cards. The hard drive uses the latest USB 3.0 protocol and transfers takes much less time than USB 2.0. The Toshiba Canvio Basics 1TB Portable Hard Drive comes in a black plastic enclosure that feels pretty solid. Make sure you have a USB 3.0 port on your desktop or laptop, they are usually blue in color.
Overall a great USB external drive to add a little bit more space to your desktop or laptop. The Canvio Basics will set you back $54.99 for the 1TB version or you can buy the higher for a little more.
