External hard drives' prices hit the roof last year due to the floods in Thailand which affected the factories manufacturing them. So we're sure many of you have put off your external storage purchases during the last consumer electronics fair. With a bit of scouting around the PC Show this year, we have found that prices have now come down. So check out what the PC Show 2012 has to offer in terms of external storage!
External storage is slowly becoming affordable again, and you can check out the Buffalo MiniStation if you're in need of 1TB of portable storage. It's USB 3.0 compatible for faster read and write speeds, and is shock protected as well as offering data encryption.
If you don't need something portable, then the DriveStation offers good value with its special PC show price. It's USB 3.0 compatible so no worries about transferring data to and from your PC at faster speeds than a USB 2.0 connection.
