Seventy bucks for a portable two-terabyte backup drive? That’s about as cheap a price as you’re going to find, and there are at least a couple of these deals available right now.
Price: $70 on Amazon (13% off)
First up, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim, a svelte 2TB external hard drive that boasts USB 3.0 support for speedy file transfers. Just plug the 4.8-ounce Backup Plus Slim into your Mac or PC’s USB port, then turn on Time Machine for Mac or the Windows backup tool to start backing up your precious data.
This Seagate drive tends to retail for about $80, but it’s on sale now for $70.
Price: $70 on Amazon (7% off)
Also on sale: Western Digital’s 2TB Elements Portable hard drive, which also comes with USB 3.0 support and shares the Seagate’s “plug-and-play” capability.
Weighing in at half a pound, the Western Digital drive is a bit heftier than the Seagate, but at $70, the price is right. Update [4/1/17]: The price tag has jumped back up to $80.
