If you are thinking of investing in an external HDD, look at the external-HDD-cases that can accommodate the drive. You get the best options in external hard drive storage case online.

 

What to look for in ATV-parts?

 

Shop according to size

You need an external hard drive case 2.5 if you have a notebook and 3.5 HDD external case if you have a desktop. An external HDD case 3.5 is cheaper than an external HDD case 2.5 but it all depends on your computer type. The former, however, is recommended if you are thinking of upgrading your notebook.

 

SATA external-HDD-cases offer better performance

Internal HDD can have IDE or SATA interface and the external-HDD-cases should be purchased accordingly. An external hard drive case SATA is more common and is better in terms of performance. A SATA interface also offers both types of connections, USB and FireWire.

 

For connection, choose between USB and FireWire

That brings us to the point about connections. There are two types of connections in use for external-HDD-cases – USB and FireWire. In terms of performance, both are usually the same, but the data transfer speed can vary. If your commuter has both kinds of connections, you need to make a choice.

 

How to choose your external-HDD-case according to your need?

 

Single or multiple bays

Depending upon your usage, you can choose between external-HDD-cases with single or multiple bays. A Single bay allows you to use one HDD while a multiple bay has provision for more HDDs. If you need to store a lot of files in the external HDD, the second option is any day more suited for your purpose.

 

Ease of installation

Installing the external-HDD-cases is usually simple because you can generally use USB or FireWire for the connection. However, there could be HDD cases that are difficult to install and you may want to stay away from these cases if you are not really into computer installations. A plug and play option is a better alternative.

 

Go with an established name

Going with one of the established names in external-HDD-cases is a good option. While hard drive cases don’t crash and break easily, you need something that is more durable than the standard cases and lets you access your HDD easily.

 

What are the most popular external-HDD-cases?

Vantec Nexstar MX NST-400MX-S3 is among the highest selling external-HDD-cases in Canada. This is a high performance case that adequately protects your precious hard disks. It also has a nice look and complements the look of your computer.

It can accommodate your hard drive easily and keep it safe all the time.

 

Conclusion

An external hard drive hard case may not be something that everyone looks forward to buying. But this is a sound investment because your external HDD will have all those files that you cherish and don’t want to lose. There are excellent options available online for you to protect your HDD.
