External harddrive replacement?

Question

Posted

I am seeking a replacement external hard drive that (according to CrystalDisk Info) has 4 bad sectors.

 

At lest 1.5 TB (although 2 TB may be better)

Should use:

  • USB 2.0 (or 3.0)
  • Or Firewire (incase all my other USB ports are taken)
  • Or eSata (that should be the fastest, yes?)

peas and tanks you (please and thank you)

Any reason you need external? About the fastest write speeds you get through straight SATA.

 

But I'd recommend anything from WD.

WD and Seagate are a good choice.

 

Of course SSDs are a better but expensive alternative.

For OS use, yes. Only for storage, no.

I have a SSD, although having a larger and faster one for the OS could probably be useful I need storage because one of my drives has bad sectors, what was on the drive is now on the 2 TB mechanical drive in this along with the other externals.   I'm thinking one these in a 2 or 3 TB variety. If one of my other externals goes I need some place to keep the data that's on that, don't I?

All of those are fine. Just look at write/read speeds, and what other people are saying about it. Look at professional reviews, not just newegg.
