About 2TB Hard Drives
When it comes to personal computing, you can never have too much space. A 2TB hard drive allows you to store all your files, images, music, HD videos and data.
Equating to 500,000 songs or 770 hours of standard DVD quality video, 2TB hard drives are increasing in popularity, partly due to the rise in FLAC audio and HD video files for personal use. It's not enough to simply have the latest graphics card or processor these days; we also need acres of memory, and we want quick access to our files and data.
Hard drives are fairly easy to install, and can be fitted into your existing machine in just a few simple steps - but be careful to back up all your current data first (including your Outlook .pst files if applicable).
If you're just looking to store or back up files, another option is to invest in a 2TB external hard drive, which can be stored separately from your computer, therefore not requiring installation. This type of hard drive can simply be plugged into your computer whenever you need it, and is also very portable for travelling.
There are many different hard drive manufacturers to choose from, including brands such as Samsung, Hitachi, Toshiba, Seagate, Western Digital, Fujitsu and Quantum.
With the price of 2TB hard drives falling, their new affordability means it's never been a better time to invest in a 2TB hard drive.
