On sale for $45 (was $80), this Seagate Backup Plus Slim comes with 1TB of external storage for Mac and Windows 10 laptops and desktop computers. It’s also ‘Plug & Play,’ so there’s no need to install special software to get started. Just plug it into your device via USB 3.0 and you’re ready to go. Shoppers vouch for its reliability for backing up important files and photos.
“This handy little drive should store all the data any individual or small business probably needs,” wrote a delighted five-star reviewer. “At the beginning of each year, I back up all my personal data files, favorites, contacts and photos on this tiny little gadget. Even with tons of data files and a bazillion hi-res photos (I'm a serious photographer), I barely put a dent in the 1TB capacity. This miniature drive meets my personal needs perfectly...This drive works well for updating and transferring my latest desktop files to my travel laptop. It is super fast using USB-3 and always glitch-free.”
If your Xbox One is starting to get so full that you can’t even download an important software update without deleting a few games, then it’s probably time for an external hard drive. This Seagate Game Drive For Xbox—which is on sale for $88, or $17 off at Amazon—is specifically designed for the Xbox One, while it even matches the console color scheme. This model has 4TB of external storage, which is four times the storage of even the most top-level Xbox One. And shoppers love how this hard drive makes gameplay more enjoyable too.
“I was so happy to finally get this drive,” shared a satisfied shopper. “It is working flawlessly. In fact, I feel like my games actually run smoother...All in all, I am extremely happy with my purchase. I can literally download every game available on Game Pass and not worry.”
If you’re looking for something with a little more room, this Seagate Backup Plus—on sale for $98, or $62 off—comes with 5TB of external storage, which is more than enough for casual use and then some. And although it has a large storage capacity, this hard drive is pocket-sized and weighs a little more than nine ounces. Amazon shoppers swear by its convenience and portability.
“This little drive works great,” raved another five-star reviewer. “Fast read and write speeds; it's light and small enough to fit in my pocket when traveling with my laptop. It can also fit nicely into my laptop's case in a small pouch. The capacity is great. I'm very happy with this and will be buying a few more.”
