Our external hard drives can be personalised with your name, logo, image or other design. This makes it a convenient storage solution for your files and a unique and personal gift for friends, family or colleagues.
Firstly, an external hard drive is a hard drive that isn't installed into your computer. You can detach it separately and take it with you or transfer it to another computer or laptop. You can connect the hard drive to the preferred device by using a USB cable. A big advantage of hard drives is that they offer a lot of storage space for all your important files, including photos, video's, music and documents. They also allow you to easily transfer files from one computer to another, or even take them with you when travelling.
Another advantage of personalised external hard drives is that they come in different sizes and storage spaces. You can therefore tailor them to your needs. Do you need a lot of storage space? Then you can opt for a 1 TB external SSD or a 2 TB external HDD. Are you looking for a cheaper model, where a lot of storage space isn't that important? Then we also have a 120 GB external SSD or a 500 GB external HDD.
When choosing an external hard drive, there are several factors to consider. First, it is important to look at the storage capacity and size of the hard drive. You obviously want to make sure you have enough storage for all your files, but you also don't want to pay more for storage you don't need. You should also take into account the speed of the hard drive and the connection to your computer. Our hard drives use a USB-C port, so be sure to check if this is compatible with your device.

At PrintSimple, we have a range of both customised Hard Disk Drives (HDD) and Solid State Drive (SSD) with different storage capacities to suit everyone's needs. Below, we briefly explain the difference between both drives.
An external HDD works by means of a magnetic platter that spins, while a read-write head stores and reads the data. HDD's are generally cheaper than SSD's and offer a lot of storage space at an affordable price. Therefore, they are suitable for users looking for a low-cost storage solution, where speed and durability are less important.
External SSD's, on the other hand, work with memory chips that digitally store and read data. The big advantage of SSD's is that they work much faster than HDD's, as there are no moving parts in these drives. They are also silent, lighter in size, less fragile and a more durable solution than their counterpart. The disadvantage, however, is that they are more expensive than HDD's, because of the extra benefits offered. If speed, reliability and durability are important elements for you, then it's best to opt for an SSD.
Ultimately, the choice between an external HDD and an external SSD depends on your personal preference and specific needs.
