Western Digital has long been one of the most reputable manufacturers of hard drives and storage, and is trusted the world over by millions of users – many of them photographers and videographers, looking to keep their work backed up.
The WD My Passport 5TB offers an healthy storage capacity, which should be more than enough to keep your files safely stowed away for some time. It boasts USB 3.0 for blazing fast transfer speeds, but also supports USB 2.0 to ensure that it's backwards-compatible with older devices.
