So my sister is in the market for an external hard drive for all her pictures and music, and given that she isn't the most friendly with electronics. I was worried that if she bought a hard disk she would break it, so i figured an SSD would be best. So i looked it up on Newegg and all the external SSD's are to small and much to expensive. So i was wondering if anyone here knew of a reliable external hard disk drive, that would still work after, say being dropped or the like. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Leave your sister alone and let her buy a standard external hard drive - and tell her not to drop it. :)

She can drop that one from 7" and it'll be fine I'm sure it can be dropped from higher just tell her not to make a habit out of it.
