Gaming titles are becoming increasingly prevalent each year, and some popular ones even exceeding the usual size for heavy games. Desktops have the advantage of upgradability, but the same cannot be said about your gaming consoles or laptops. Despite many brands trying to find a solution for this, the alternative and more affordable tactic is to get an external hard disk drive to outspread your storage via the USB port on your console.

Irrespective of your reasons, there are a wide range of options to select from and they'll come in many different sizes, in terms of both capacity and physical dimensions. Whichever external hard drive you choose, make sure it connects easily to your gaming PC via USB or USB-C and are prepared to go as soon as you plug them in. Here's a list of some of the best external hard drives to help solve storage issues.

Seagate is one of the most common names that comes to mind when speaking of quality and durability. The Seagate Game Drive is specifically designed for PS4 users, complete with a blue and black colour scheme analogous to the console. This sleek hard drive by Seagate has the storage dimensions of 4 terabytes so you will have abundant space to store all your games and media content without perturbing about running out of space. The hard drive is linked and powered using a USB port to your console, so there won't arise the need to carry an external power brick for it. The black and blue aluminium casing give it an extra layer of protection without contributing much to weight (240g) and thickness (2.1cm).

This external drive from Western Digital can be used with gaming consoles together with your Windows and Mac PCs. The drive is available with a black military-grade finish for a sturdy and professional look. It delivers speeds up to 140MB/s that enables your console to reach a new level of performance. The built for gamers tag line for the P10 Game drive gives a consistent performance boost and capacity for gamers on the go.

The WD My Passport is one of the most revered external hard disk line-ups that comes with good quality and abundant storage at reasonable pricing. It is equipped with 4TB worth of storage capacity with a weight of 245g, making it big on storage instead of weight. The hard drive transmits data through the USB 3.0 cable that comes along with the device and is backwards compatible, implying that it even works with a USB 2.0 port, but with slower transfer speed. It has support for 256-bit AES Hardware Encryption for an added layer of security for your data.

4. ADATA SE800 1TB:
The ADATA SE800 1TB offers M.2 NVMe drive, bridged to a USB interface. In this case, it's a 10Gbps USB 3.2 Gen 2 interface instead of a 20Gbps USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 connection. But this drive is still considered to be perfect for 1GB/s data transfers in both directions, which is around twice as fast as any SATA-based drives, together with internal SSDs connected natively via SATA.

Care for an external hard drive is undeniably quite simple as you will see from the information provided above. Since it is simple and easy to take care of your portable hard drive and the possible devastating consequences of not doing so, it is highly advised that you follow the advice provided. Having a backup of your data is crucial, and Gigastone data recovery specialists can aid you through the process.
