Recommendation for External Hard Drive/USB Stick/Flash drive etc.

  • kevind

    I know this isn’t strictly “Destination” advice so I’ll call it “Whilst getting to your destination” advice.

    Can anyone recommend an external hard drive or USB Flash drive or such like for downloading and storing movies and TV programmes? I don’t want to load my laptop up with loads of content as I only really watch TV/Films on it while I am travelling. I mainly use Apple TV/Amazon for downloads and use a MacBook Pro.

    I currently have a LaCie Rugged portable hard drive which acts as my backup drive for everything, laptop, desktop etc. and I don’t travel with it. I was just going to buy another one but thought I would ask for opinion on here.

    Thanks in advance guys.


    Firstly suggest you check that your streaming service of choice let’s you save to any location. Then it’s down to your preference on USB key style or a plug in drive and size of storage needed. SSD is of course faster to use and more expensive to purchase.

    Maybe even buy an inexpensive non solid state drive to use as a library and transfer to what I presume is a solid state drive in your device when ready to watch.
