- Portable 2TB USB Drive $70
Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB Portable USB3.0 Drive for $80, and code ESCENFJ39 applies $10 off.
Normally sells for $80.
Powers itself through the included USB data cable, so no need to carry a separate power cable.
Most reviews are positive, though some people reported bad drives.
Newegg offers a 30-day refund/replacement warranty, and Seagate offers a 2 year replacement warranty.
Data losses caused by faulty drives are extremely frustrating experiences, so we suggest doing backups (data copied to 2 or more places) rather than relying on a single drive to store your important data.

Inside is a refurbished 4TB hard drive which would normally sell by itself for at least $90.
If you want an internal 4TB hard drive, you could use a screwdriver to remove the drive from its case.
Hard drives make relatively cheap backup devices when plugged in to a computer via a hard drive docking station.

- Seagate 2TB Hybrid Hard Drive $85
Seagate (ST2000DX001) 2TB Hard Drive with built-in caching 8GB SSD for $85 today.
Normally about $95.
We have not used this drive, but reviews say it is one of the best-performing hard drives in the consumer market, and good value at 4.25¢ per GB.
Its SSD caching helps improve performance, while still giving 2TB of storage space.
It has mostly positive reviews, but some people say their drives failed soon after receiving it.
If you need a hard drive with better reliability, check out a Western Digital Blue (slower, but priced better at 3¢ per GB), or a Western Digital Black 2TB for $110 with code ESCELFF22 (expensive, reliable, 5-year warranty).
