What We Think

For gamers who want to have all their games ready to play at any moment's notice, a hard drive is a good way to go.

Many Steam libraries can be moved to any external drive, but for faster loading speeds, you'll want to ensure that this external hard drive is connected to a USB 3.0 port.

The usage of the USB 3.0 port ensures much faster data transfer compared to a USB 2.0 port, and a USB 3.0 port features a transfer rate of up to 60 MB per second, while a USB 2.0 port features a data transfer rate of just 48 MB per second.

When paired with the 8 TB capacity, this faster data transfer speed could make this drive ideal for both a video editing PC or a storage expansion for a gaming PC.
