The SanDisk Professional G-Drive ArmorATD is a cost-effective, semi-rugged external hard drive available in capacities up to 5TB. With a good mix of capacity, pricing, and performance, it's a shoo-in as an Editors' Choice pick for desktop external hard drives.

It comes formatted in Mac-friendly HFS+, one of two formats (along with APFS) compatible with the macOS Time Machine backup system. Western Digital is one of the most trusted names in data storage, and trust is vital for a device that will hold so much of your valuable memories, media, and information. Some in the storage industry refer to these (as well as smaller-capacity externals as a whole) as DAS—for "direct attached storage"—to distinguish them from NAS, or network attached storage, many of which are also multi-bay devices that can take two or more drives that you supply. It costs a tad more per gigabyte than much of its platter-based ilk, but less than SSDs of equivalent capacity.The Western Digital My Book, now available in capacities up to a whopping 22TB, can hold thousands of hours of video, or millions of MP3s or photos. However, they also seem to generally put drives from much cheaper product lines into their externals. As a hard drive, you can count on the Backup Plus Hub to provide dependable storage and quick transfer speeds. These products are separated into the correct waste flow at our local depots and send directly to government approved WEEE recycling plants. The ADATA HD710M Pro also has grips and channels around the edges of the drive to keep the detachable USB cable tethered to the drive at all times, even when not plugged into the USB connector.

I've also written a host of articles about astronomy, space science, travel photography, and astrophotography for PCMag and its past and present sibling publications (among them, Mashable and ExtremeTech), as well as for the PCMag Digital Edition. These connection types are ever in flux, but these days, most external hard drives use a flavor of USB, or in rare cases, Thunderbolt. Given the large size of 8TB hard drives, it's also essential that companies stand by their warranty and offer a data recovery service in case something goes wrong. But I'd like it to be of decent quality, if possible, and my budget is limited, so spending a ton more to put my own together in a case is a very poor option (and my luck with bring-your-own-drive external cases is terrible anyway).

If you're addicted to downloading videos and snapping up every game you can find online, chances are you need inexpensive, voluminous storage to house it all. To help the connection of your appliance go smoothly, please watch our dishwasher or washing machine connection video. Right now, the fastest connection type in wide use on hard drives is Thunderbolt 3, which is handy assuming you have a newer laptop or desktop with a Thunderbolt 3 port.
