3 Best 1 TB hard drives under Rs 5000

Nowadays it is very hard to keep data safe and private. External hard drive is not only a source of storage expansion; it also plays a vital role in storing important files and data. Storing vital data or credentials in your laptop is fine, but keeping the backup of those data is definitely required. Today we have plenty of external storage options such as pen drives, DVDs, hard drives etc., but hard drives are widely used to store massive files and data which probably won’t fit inside a 4 GB DVD or a 32 GB pen drive. Most of us usually free up the laptop or desktop storage by transferring the movies, videos, game setups etc. to the external hard drive. Since external hard drives come with huge storage space and faster transfer speed, we usually prefer them over other storage sources. Though HDD has everything in its favor, the price difference between pen drives and HDD is also a major concern among students and unemployed people.

Here we have created the list of 3 best 1 TB hard drives under Rs 5000 in India. Sony HD-SL1, Seagate Backup plus Slim and WD My Passport Ultra are the top 3 external hard drives of the list with speedy transfer and error free feedbacks. All the portable HDDs of the list support USB 3.0 connectivity for better transfer speed. They are also compatible with all latest Operating Systems.

Sony HD-SL1 Ultra-Slim Lightweight 1TB External Hard Drive being on the top of the list certainly offers faster transfer speeds with data transfer accelerator software for USB 3.0. It comes with automatic backup with preloaded backup manager application. For greater data security, Sony has also included the password protection manager software.
