If you're into any sort of content creation or video editing or anything like that, you might find your hard drives filling up on space rather quickly. Heck, even if all you do is collect media you'll notice that just a couple terabytes is no where near enough. Grab the WD Elements 12TB external hard drive for a low price of $189.99 at B&H. The drive is on sale as part of B&H's DealZone, a daily deals section. The $120 on-page coupon brings it down to this total, a new low we haven't seen before. We've seen the Elements available at other sites, but it hasn't dropped this low. You'll find it going for around $250 or so at place slike Amazon.
The desktop drive is plug-and-play so is super simple to use. It is compatible with Windows right out of the box, but if you want it to work with Mac you'll have to reformat it. Remember that reformatting erases the data, so be sure to do this before you actually start using the drive.
The connection is USB 3.0. That explains its wide compatibility, and it also allows for super fast data transfers up to 5 Gbps. With all that space, you'll want some fast speeds so you can transfer everything as quick as possible.
Use this hard drive as a backup. It should be large enough for your entire system. Since it's not internal, it can serve as a secondary place to keep all your data safe. Or you can just use it as a central location for all of your media. Keep all your photos and movies in one place.
