Summer is coming to an end and our mobile devices are full of high-res photos, videos, and even graphics. I don’t know about you, but I’ve already maxed out the storage on my tech devices. That’s how I know it’s time to start exporting all those files onto a portable hard drive.
Now, I know you don’t have time to go through hundreds of portable HD’s to see which ones are good. That’s why I read all the geeky tech reviews to find six portable hard drives for easy digital organization.

1. LaCie Rugged Thunderbolt
The LaCie Rugged Portable Hard Drive is perfect for pretty much everyone. This HD can store up to 5TB of data and is dust, shock, and water-resistant which is great HD for travel. I’ve also noticed a lot of YouTubers use it to store their large video files and images.
2. Seagate Backup Plus Slim
Another great portable hard drive to store all your digital files is the Seagate Backup Plus Slim HD. It comes in four different colors (red, gray, black and blue) and can store up to 5TB of data. It’s slim, lightweight and looks very chic and stylish.
3. Glyph BlackBox Pro
The 3TB Glyph BlackBox Pro hard drive is designed for creative professionals and uses latest USB-C technology. It comes with its own optimized passive cooling system and has a very tough outer shell that can take a beating.
4. Samsung T3 Portable SSD
The award for the smallest portable hard drive goes to the Samsung T3 Portable SSD. This tiny yet powerful SSD is perfect for anyone wants to store their digital files, but on a really small SSD that they can carry anywhere (in their pocket, perhaps?). The Samsung T3 can store up to 2TB of data.
5. SanDisk Extreme 900 Portable SSD
The SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD is a super-fast portable drive for storing high-res photos, videos, and graphics. This would be a great device for graphic designers and online content creators.
6. WD My Passport
Ah, the classic WD My Passport hard drive that I ALWAYS talks about here on XO PIXEL. If you’re a long time reader, you know how much I love my WD My Passport. I still use my own WD hard drive that I got back in 2014 (around the same time I started my blog and YouTube channel). It’s great—I haven’t experienced any issues to date. I highly recommend this hard drive!
