Which is the best external storage under 10000 Rupees in the Indian market? In this piece, you read about the best-selling external storage from 1000 to 10000 Rupees price range. The suggested external storage is from top storage hardware brands and is a favorite of buyers for reliability and data transfer speed.

Data security and price are two essential factors in the selection of external storage. You have 4TB of data, and you secured them in four 1TB external storage. Due to some reason, if one of them fails, you still have 3TB data safe and sound. On the contrary, if you store the whole data on a 4TB external storage, and if the hard disk fails, your 4TB data will be lost. However, the price of four 1TB external storage will be 50% more in comparison to the cost of a single 4TB drive. Besides, storing data on a small size hard disk is a little more inconvenient than parking it on a large external hard disk.

► 4TB WD MyPassport External Hard Drive

The external hard disk drive from the Western Digital brand is available in 1TB, 2TB, 3TB, and 4TB sizes. There is not much difference between their gross weight. For instance, the weight of the 2TB variant is 170 grams, whereas the weight of the 4TB option is 245 grams only. However, their price difference is vast. Therefore, to save money on external storage, always invest in the model with the highest storage capacity.

WD My Passport 4TB External Drive

Western Digital is one of the best names in the global market for data storage hardware. My Passport is a top-selling data storage drive of this American brand.

My Passport external storage comes with auto backup software by WD for making a second copy of your system data. Built-in 256-bit AES hardware encryption means the backup data will be 100% digitally secure. Just activate the password protection feature and set your password to secure your data entirely and prevent unauthorized access to it.

As far as I know, there is no external storage in the Indian market with a social media storage feature. WD My Passport external hard drive comes with a unique application to import and store locally, the multimedia content in your social media account.

► ADATA SD600Q External SSD {240GB} {480GB} {960GB}

Adata is one of the best computer memory brands in the Indian market for affordable and reliable SSDs. I made a Dell laptop with Intel i3 Processor and 4GB DDR4 RAM much faster than premium laptops with Intel i7 Processor and 8GB DDR4 RAM, but with an HDD, by replacing its HDD with a brand new Adata SSD.

HDD memory usually has 5 to 7 years of maximum life. However, an SSD will have a minimum of 15 years of life. If used with care, then life might extend 5 to 10 years more.

ADATA SD600Q 960GB Military Grade External SSD Solid State Drive

If accidentally an HDD falls from even 5 to 6 feet in height, 80% chances are that it will become not usable. On the other hand, if an SSD falls from any height, and if it is still in its original condition, then it is as good as it was on day one.

The best speed of a high-end HDD will be less than 200-MBPS. Whereas the worst speed of a low-class SSD will be not less than 350 MBPS.

Thus, SSD is a better memory type than HDD because of data security, long life, and high-speed read-write. As I mentioned in the beginning Adata is the brand for the most affordable but high-quality SSD in the Indian market. So, why not buy an Adata SSD if you are looking for external storage?

  Laptops Under ₹45000

Adata SD600Q is one of the best-selling external SSDs under 10,000 Rupees. It has the military-grade build quality. So, it is very secure from normal accidents.

► WD Elements External Hard Drive with USB 3.0

Western Digital is one of the best brands in the global market for external storage, especially. WD external hard drives are portable, lightweight, reliable, fast, and secure. That is why they are the top favorite of buyers. WD MyPassport and WD Elements are some of the top-selling external drives in the world market, also of brand.

WD Elements 2TB Portable External Hard Drive

WD Elements drive is available in 1TB, 2TB, 3TB, 4TB, and 5TB Sizes. There is not much difference between the physical shape size of the two variants. Therefore, buying the variant with a higher capacity makes more sense.

  Best Internal SSD Solid State Drive This Year

For data in & out, this external hard drive model has a single USB 3.0 port, which is also compatible with USB 2.0. Its read & write speed is very impressive. Data transfer speed could reach 5GBPS if it is connected to a USB 3.0 port on a computer system.

Being self-powered makes WD Elements' external drive more comfortable to use. Plug it into any computer system that runs on any of the recent versions of the Windows operating system to start transferring data. That much easy it is to use WD Elements Hard Drive with a laptop or desktop.

► Seagate Backup Plus Slim – External Portable HDD

There can’t be any ambiguity about the fact that Seagate is the most favorite brand for HDD in the global market. Whether it is internal or external HDD, Seagate storage devices are the first preference of the masses. Therefore, Seagate Backup Plus SLIM is one of the best-selling external storage under 10000 Rupees, even though it is more than 1000 Rupees costlier than the current price of 2TB WD Elements external storage.

Seagate Backup Plus Slim External Portable HDD

Seagate Backup Plus SIM storage model is currently available in 1TB and 2TB capacity. The primary connectivity of this external storage model is USB 3.0, which is also compatible with USB 2.0.

The build quality of this Seagate external storage is outstanding, though. It comes in a metallic enclosure. Because of its Aluminum body, it looks super stylish. Also, it feels very strong and is lightweight.

The languid READ & WRITE speed of this external storage is disappointing. It is far slower than the WD Elements Hard Driver. The maximum RW speed of Seagate Backup Plus SLIM is 120-MBPS only. On the other hand, the minimum RW speed of Western Digital Elements is 130-MBPS.

  Smartphones under ₹5000

On the front of longevity, however, the winner is Seagate Backup Plus SLIM and its other sister models. I have had a working Seagate 2TB external HDD for 8 years. It is fully functional storage, even though I never cared about it the way it should have been. That should give you a fair idea about the possible long life of the Backup Plus SLIM model.
