External Hard Drives

Benefit from additional storage space.

External hard drives provide extra storage capacity for your computer and many of them are plug-and-play devices, which offer excellent convenience. With different external hard drives to choose from, it's easy to find a device to meet your needs. In addition to offering extra storage, these drives can also serve as backup devices for your data. Many drives are portable, which is useful if you need to move your files to another location, or potentially, to a different machine. Choose from different kinds of hard drives, as well as different styles, performance abilities, and storage capacities, to find your ideal match.

A selection of devices with different storage capacities.

Essentially, there are two main types of external hard drives:

  • Desktop hard drives: These vary in size and are designed to be kept near your computer on your desktop. They require an external power source and some have internal fans that help cool the device when it's operating. Desktop devices come in various sizes, depending on how much storage capacity you need. You can find 1TB external hard drives and 2TB external hard drives in our range.
  • Portable external hard drives: These are designed to move from place to place, and they're ideal for making backups or to use as an extra storage device for laptops and notebooks. Portable drives tend to be small and compact, and they draw their power from the device they're connected to.

Choose devices with different storage capacities, ranging from 100 gigabytes up to 8 terabytes, and order your external hard drives online here.
