- 8TB External/Desktop USB Hard Drive for $130

Normal price for an 8TB USB drive is about $150.
Recently, parents have asked us for suggestions on safe-keeping their kids' photos and videos.
While cloud services like Apple Cloud and Google Cloud offer convenience and cheap prices for safe-keeping a couple gigabytes of photos & videos, they can get very expensive when storing years worth.
At $10/mo for 2TB of storage, that's $120 per year to keep your photos and videos safe and accessible.
If you stop paying the fee, your precious memories could be lost forever.
At a one-time cost of $130, an 8TB USB hard drive can keep your memories safe.
To prevent loss when a hard drive dies, buy a second hard drive as a backup.
It is extremely rare for two hard drives to die at the same time.
Do not rely on burnt DVDs, which will lose their integrity in 5-10 years.
Flash drives also could suffer from a similar fate.
Optical discs, flash drives, and solid state media can suffer total data loss when parts fail, versus hard drives which use magnetic mechanisms and can usually be recovered when they die.
Do not rely on social media for safe-keeping your photos, since Facebook, Twitter, and others degrade photo quality during upload to save on space.
Degraded photos could look blurry when printed, even though they look as good as original when viewed on a mobile device.
So if Cloud services are getting too expensive, we recommend USB hard drives as the cheapest way for safe-keeping your memories.
