Western Digital My Book
So far it's been about portable hard drives, but if you buy one and all it will do is sit on your desk, a portable hard drive probably isn't the best option. Rather, you should go with a desktop external drive, which will be cheaper overall, and Western Digital's My Book series is a good option to go with.
Not only are desktop drives cheaper, but they can offer way more storage than a portable drive can, as the My Book offers all the way up to 6TB of storage.
With a desktop drive, there's a power cord that you have to plug in, making it less of a portable option for a MacBook, but if you need an external drive mostly just for Time Machine, a desktop drive like the My Book is perfect.
The My Book starts at just under $100 for the 2TB, but that's not the best value at all. Instead, go for the 4TB, which is priced at $125, meaning that the cost per gigabyte is only a measly 3.1 cents!
