Seagate 5TB Ext. Hard Drive

$40 OFF

     Don’t be a slave to a Wifi connection.  Perfect for students, photographers, and artists on-the-go, you’ll never be cutoff from your media again. 

     The Seagate Backup Plus 5TB Portable External Hard Drive also includes Seagate Dashboard software to easily create custom backup plans and keep everything organized.  It also has Google Drive and Dropbox cloud connectivity for extra security and social media backup for your Facebook, Flickr, and Youtube accounts.

     One thing I don’t like about this external hard drive is that the write times can be extremely slow when it gets above 60% capacity. On the other hand, if you’re just using it as a redundant backup for your computer and/or cloud storage, it’s a great value at around $100.

  • Compact size for ultimate portability
