SSDs may be all the rage, but the humble magnetic drive still has a place, especially for storing local backups or carting massive files between locations. If you’re in the market for such a gadget, Amazon currently has a sale on portable Seagate drives, with the 2TB version selling for $US100, plus $US6.48 for delivery.
The total works out to be $113.32 in Australian dollars, a fair bit cheaper than the best local price of $157 (not including postage). The Amazon product page claims the drive is “42 per cent thinner” than the thinnest portable 2TB — a claim we’ll just have to take Seagate’s word for, but it does look remarkably slim.
It supports USB 3.0 for fast transfers and doesn’t require an external power supply. If black isn’t your colour, you can grab it in blue, red or silver.
