Western Digital 4TB hard drive

If you need more space in the portable sphere, Western Digital’s hard drives are an excellent solution. The ample space is more than enough to hold just about everything you ever had digitally, and they run smoothly and quietly. We upgraded our original personal drive as well as the drive that holds our emulators, both with the 4TB model. The copy speed was decent, the price was great for this much space these days and the variety of shell casing color options was nice.

Amazon Basics: USB 3.0 Charger Cable - A-Male to Micro-B

Before we replaced several portable drives, we researched and bought replacement data cables for the drives. Once we figured out which cables were needed, it was quick and easy to buy off Amazon. They weren’t expensive and were just what we needed as a temporary solution. The cables are sturdy and high-quality, and they provide excellent data speed.
