Western Digital Elements Desktop: Who is the External Hard Drive for?

If you want to store large amounts of files (e.g. video or photo collections) or backups to create more space for new things, external hard drives with high capacities are worthwhile. HDDs are slower than the now popular SSD drives, but they offer significantly more storage space for the money. Particularly fast read and write speeds are less worthwhile if you rarely access the files and are more likely to look for a data depot.

If you now need an external hard drive with a lot of storage, you can access the WD Elements Desktop (10 TB) at Amazon or Saturn without being surprised by a much better deal. If you don’t have an acute shortage of space, you may be able to save a few euros more in the coming months.
