While Prime Day deals are still enticing everyone to part with their cash, retailers like Newegg are also launching deals ahead of Black Friday. These discounts are also being applied to NAS storage drives from Seagate, and I'm not talking about the 1TB capacity model!
It's recommended you have a NAS with at least two bays for data redundancy, and to keep capacity somewhat usable, you'll want to have at least 4TB drives installed. Seagate's IronWolf 4TB NAS drives are on sale right now for $92, saving you $15 apiece.
$92 may sound like a lot for one hard drive, but these have a capacity of 4TB each, providing as much space as possible for storing all your data. They're also specifically designed for NAS use with advanced vibration protection, among other features.
The only drawback to this 4TB drive is the use of a 5400RPM motor, which doesn't mean a whole lot for most users, but does limit the speed of data access compared to faster 7200RPM drives. Other capacities included in this promotion come with these faster motors, so if speed is key, you should consider the higher capacities.
Speaking of which, the higher capacity IronWolf drives on sale include the 6TB is discounted to $160, 8TB is just $180, and 10TB has been slashed to $265. Now's a great time to set up your own NAS and Seagate drives are brilliant for continuous operation.
