As reliable as we think our computers are, sometimes they fail at the most inopportune moments, and more often than not, we find our data lost at the most unexpected of times. If you need to ensure that your data is constantly being backed up, then check out WD’s 12TB Elements external drive.
The drive offers a whopping 12TB of storage, making it one of the largest external hard drives for consumers available. It also helps that the drive is normally priced at $309.99, but right now it’s enjoying a 30% discount which brings its price down to a much more affordable $215.99.
This means that in terms of price to GB ratio, it’s actually an incredibly value for money hard drive. The drive will require users to plug it into an AC outlet for it to function, but if you’re primarily using this for your desktop then this shouldn’t be an issue. It offers USB 3.0 connectivity but it is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 ports.
