Time for a little extra space for all of your data in a drive you can keep with you. The Seagate Expansion 1TB portable hard drive has dropped to a low of $42.99 through Best Buy. This drive normally sells for around $57 or more, so you're saving about $15 today. This is one of the best prices we've ever seen, and the deal price essentially gives you a terabyte of space for very little.
The low price is part of Best Buy's deals of the day, which means it's very temporary. You can also find the hard drive on sale at B&H, but it is a part of the DealZone there, which is another daily deals section. So either way, this huge savings disappears at the end of the day.
What you get is a nice chunk of space at an inexpensive price. Since it works with USB 3.0 you get those super speedy 5Gbps data transfer speeds. Plus it can work with other USB ports, too, even if not quite as fast. It won't a lot to get it up and running, either. Your computer, whether that be a Windows or a Mac, will automatically recognize it and set it up for you.
Then it's as simple as dragging and dropping the files you want to make portable. Whether you have games you want to run from the drive or a bunch of movies and music you just want to be able to access, you can keep it all close by with this drive. Since it is only 18 inches, you can keep it just about anywhere, too. Put it in your purse or backpack or laptop bag and only pull it out when you need it.
Seagate covers this drive with a one-year warranty. Plus you can use Rescue Data Recovery Services in the event that anything should happen.
