As photographers, we need large amounts of disk space. At home we each have multiple 5TB disks strung to our computers. I say multiples because we back up our pictures to ensure we don’t lose everything if a disk fails. The disk drives we have at home are physically quite large and have their own power block. This is somewhat cumbersome of course to take on the road with us.
So, imagine our delight when we found these small disk drives that come with large capacity, 4 Tera Bytes! These disks are the size of a pack of cigarettes and draw power from the USB connection so no power block required.
These disks are amazing! They use the USB 3.0 connection, which is very fast and are literally plug and play. They come pre-formatted for Windows, but are easily re-formatted for Mac users.
We have a few of them with us on the road and have left our large disks at home.
