    Five things to look for in an external hard drive

    If storage capacity is your main priority, a desktop drive usually offers more for your money than a portable drive.

    Portable hard drives are, by their nature, more vulnerable to damage. Choosing a drive with a solid, well-made case 
has more than just aesthetic benefits; it should also better-protect your valuable data.

    If you intend to use your hard drive as a backup device, consider the quality of the included backup software. Some hard drive manufacturers only offer trial packages, while others include far more functional and useful alternatives at no extra cost.

    Drives with faster USB 3.0, FireWire 800, or eSATA interfaces are only worth investing in if your computer comes equipped with a similarly speedy connection.

    High-capacity drives may initially seem expensive, but work out cheaper in terms of gigabytes-per-pound.
