Which brand of external disk is better?

I want to buy a 2T hard drive, but do not know which brand is better.


It's hard to be sure which is better since everybody has different needs and might like one better than the other. But I took a peek at Amazon's list of 2T and up hard disks, and then listed it by average customer review. That should help you see which ones are getting the best reviews on Amazon, and it should help you narrow down the list of choices.


There is always a bit of “luck of the draw,” so you could get a HDD that has issues from any manufacturer. That said, I think if you ask most people in IT, Western Digital is going to be the HDD of choice for the majority of them. There are other good drives, of course, and some cheaper options, but WD would be my first choice.
