Whether you’re gaming at home or at a friend’s house, a 1TB external hard drive for your PS3 can make the transportation of your files as easy as carrying a deck of cards. Not only can you save your game data on this external hard drive, you can also save movies, music (along with album art), and photos. Your console can take your saved data and play it back to you in beautiful high definition.

There was a time when playing a game with your saved data at a friend’s house meant packing up your entire console and your game disks and hitting the road with your haul. Thankfully, today, your valuable machine can stay safely tucked away at home while you pop your 1TB external hard drive into your shirt pocket and be on your way.

1TB can hold approximately 500 hours of video (depending on the file format and size) or a million minutes of music. This hard drive has more than enough space to back up your entire PS3 system so that you’ll never have to worry about losing data in the case of a system failure. Use either a USB 2.0 or a USB 3.0 port to connect to your device and run the Backup Utility from the System Settings. If your system fails, you can simply import your data to a new system and be back up and running in no time.

Given the relative cost of gaming systems, having an affordable and easy to use backup plan can save both your nerves and your wallet. Peace of mind can be yours. And with customization options such as an array of color to choose from and encryption and password protection, the user can get just the device they need with all the features they want.
