4 Things to Consider When Buying Your Next External Hard Drive

Internal storage is running low”… While this pop-up notification is more common on our smartphones, both laptops and desktops are just as likely to run out of storage space eventually. SD cards and flash drives were created specifically for this reason – the temporary, portable solution to limited local storage.

Unfortunately, SD cards and flash drives aren’t really practical for expanding storage space over a long period of time. Large programmes can’t be installed on them either. External hard drives have become the way forward for most of us who store hours of music and loads of photos from as far back as we can remember. Of course, cards and drives haven’t been replaced; they just simply aren’t enough all the time.

Now you’re contemplating buying your own external hard drive. However, before you checkout the first one in your Amazon cart, here are four things you need to know before purchasing your next external hard drive.

img_moto

It’s Christmas and you’re in the market for a watch with a difference. With its stylish good looks, comfortable feel and overall premium build, the Moto 360 is the Android Wear watch to beat.

The Moto 360 seems to outclass most contenders in the market when it comes to its design and aesthetics, offering the same features as its rivals, including a heart rate sensor, a pedometer, wireless charging and a very cool ambient light sensor.

Reviewers note that when it comes to wearables, fashion trumps function. That’s the mantra Motorola went by when it designed and developed the Moto 360, and judging by the enthusiastic response the watch received when it was unveiled earlier this year, it would seem that plenty of people agree.

Reviewers note that when it comes to wearables, fashion trumps function. That’s the mantra Motorola went by when it designed and developed the Moto 360, and judging by the enthusiastic response the watch received when it was unveiled earlier this year, it would seem that plenty of people agree.

The Moto 360 is undoubtedly the best-looking of the three between the choices of Android Wear watches (the LG G Watch and the Samsung Gear Live are the other two), with its first-class leather strap, chamfered glass and circular design.

All told, the smartwatch landscape is so new that we would recommend waiting to see if something better comes along. However, if you really must have one, the Moto 360 may be the best option right now, but it might not be relevant in just a few months. That said, if you want to jump on the Android Wear wagon now, the Moto 360 is your best bet.
