Hello,  :)

 

I'm planning to buy a 1TB HDD to backup some of the computers I have at home and to store photos and some documents.  These are the ones I'm considering:

 

 

  • Seagate Backup Plus Slim
  • Toshiba Canvio Connect
  • Toshiba Canvio Slim
  • Transcend StoreJet 25H3

I selected them because of their price and because they are compatible with Mac and PC.  I've never bought a HDD before so any advice I can get will be appreciated.  Thanks in advance!

For what you want to do, any will work, though I'd lean toward the Seagate if I had to pick one. Transcend is just an enclosure with someone else's HDD inside. Seagate has a nice software bundle too, as does WD, but those drives didn't make your list. Check this out -

I would select the least expensive one. :)
