Here's a 1TB, USB 3.0 capable portable hard drive for $60 shipped from Amazon. That's a good price! And it's another reminder to back your data up.
This deal does what it says on the box: it's a big USB hard drive for cheap. The nicest thing it has going for it is that it's a portable hard drive, so you don't have to fuss with a power cord to plug it in. Depending on the model, most 1TB portable hard drives cost between $80-$100 online, and more in-store. But $60! That's 6 cents per GB, and that's damn cheap, especially with speedy USB 3.0 capability. Although nobody really reviews portable hard drives, if this one craps out on you you're covered by a 3-year Toshiba limited warranty. [Amazon via Deals Kinja]
I'm an Amazon Prime subscriber, so sometimes it's easy for me to overlook the fact other Amazon shoppers need to hit minimum orders. Personally, I think Amazon Prime is a great deal. It's my opinion if you plan to spend around $500 on Amazon during a year that you should opt for Prime—the fast free shipping changes the way you shop online, but the streaming service really makes it a great value. For instance, I'll be watching The Avengers tonight... for free.
There's usually a free month trial to Prime. You can find that here: [Amazon]
And if you're a student, you can get 6 months for free, which is great for buying textbooks. (That's how they got me hooked, although it used to be a year.) [Amazon]
