    Get a transcend drive from multiplan center. A few models are available. 500gb drive's price is 5k, but I'd suggest getting a 750gb for 6k. Bargain around a little and you might get even better price. All are USB3. DO not worry about the price shown in ucc's site. Those are pure bullcrap. There might be other options though.

    All four of 'em seems to have more or less the same features. Get whichever you like/available/costs less.

    I suggest keep yourself away from Transcend external HDD's. It has a habit of getting disconnected from PC while copying etc. All of my friends are having this problem. I too bought a transcend 500GB and facing this prob.

    WD hdd's are good. They are also a bit pricy. You can choose one from here - http://www.computersourcebd.com/bran...20Hard%20Drive There is one 500GB priced 5,800 BDT which is 300 tk more than transcend one's. I think you can bargain the price down to 5,500 BDT.

    Using Transcend 1TB without any issue, WD is also good but Shopkeepers claims that CS not give proper warranty support for their goods, don’t know actual thing!

    I could say the same about the Transcend HDDs, they became non-functional after a while of use speaking from two friends. I say maybe Apacer 500GB will do, costs around 5200TK i think.

    *5400RPM
    *112 Read-speed/103 Write-Speed
    *USB 3.0
