Best storage solution to store lots of video used for YouTube?

    I've just started a YouTube channel, and for each video, I end up with about 20GBs or so of footage that I have recorded from gameplay, and I need a decent place to store it all in-case I need to go back to it in the future.

    It needs to be pretty fast storage as I don't want long wait times when copying it back and forth. I guess my options are either an external hard drive or a NAS of some sort. 6TB plus of storage would be great.

    I think I have a spare USB 3.1 gen 2 port at the back of my computer if there are any drives that can keep up with that speed?

    Would you go for the more expensive NAS option or would you just go for a cheap external hard drive?

    There is a new HDD out that may interest you and fulfill your needs. NAS is a good solid option.
