If you don’t want to make your movie-watching experience too perplexing, we’ll ask you to opt for an external hard drive instead. You’ll get two choices in this aspect – HDD and SSD, and, in our opinion, choosing the latter would be ideal for you.
It is faster, more efficient, and offers much more security than HDDs. Some of the largest SSD models also come with a capacity of 16TB. Thus, there’s no need to worry about the storage as well.
