- Seagate Portable 5TB Hard Drive for $90
Seagate 5TB Portable Hard Drive for $90 with free shipping.
Non-Costco members can order with a 5% surcharge ($94.50 before tax).
This is the small "portable" external hard drive that uses just one USB cable for power and data, so no need to carry a separate power cord with you.
We used a similar portable drive when we could travel, for storing thousands of photos taken with a camera.
With most people working from home, home-office equipment is in high demand.
Deals on professionally-sounding microphones are rare, but Amazon does have this Blue Yeti in Black for $100.
Most stores sell this mic for about $130.
It connects to a USB port on a PC or Mac, and provides better audio quality that on-laptop microphones, earpods, and headsets.
This version is bundled with Ghost Recon Breakpoint for PC, a nice free bonus.
It's a popular microphone for home offices and postcasters.
Some people sell their used Blue Yeti microphones (not the Nano) for about $80 on Ebay, so $100 new with 2-year warranty is a great deal.
- Western Digital External/Desktop 12TB USB Hard Drive $180 (expired)
Western Digital Easystore 12TB External/Desktop USB3.0 Hard Drive for $180 today.
Normally about $212.
12TB is massive storage, capable of storing about 200 hours of HD-quality videos, or over 200,000 24-megapixel raw/uncompressed camera photos.
The price is great too, at 1.5¢ per GB.
Inside the case is likely a Western Digital "Red" drive that normally costs over $250.
It is possible to remove the drive and plug-in to a Serial-ATA docking station or install inside a desktop computer.
If you don't mind voiding the 2-year warranty, grab some guitar picks and watch this video to pop open the case and take out the hard drive.
We have done this 5 times with similar Western Digital external drives, putting the drives in a network-connected "fileserver" PC at home for backing-up photos, videos, and important documents.
The Serial-ATA drives themselves are super reliable and perform very fast (at least 120 MBytes/sec writes).
