Solid state storage is getting cheaper all the time… but most reasonably priced thin and light laptops still only come with 256GB of storage or so.

Need more space for storing your data? You could pay a monthly fee for cloud storage or buy an expensive network-attached storage device. And I’d actually recommend doing both of those things.

But another option is to pick up a USB hard drive… because while SSD  prices have fallen in recent years, HDD prices have fallen even lower.

Case in point: at the moment Newegg is selling a 6TB external desktop hard drive for $100 and Amazon has a 5TB portable HDD for $110.

Here are some of the day’s best deals.

  1. If you’re recommending cloud storage, it must be because you haven’t tried it for anything useful.

    I took a 1 TB to try out because it was a special offer of $15 for a year.

    And the good thing was that this one came with a windows drive mapping app I could map it like an external drive, which you cannot do on google, etc.

    But I’d hate to use it for anything important like a backup or restore, as it takes forever (days!) even though I’m on ethernet & fibre broadband with good upload speed, upload/download starts becoming unreliable for files over 1GB – Not very practical for big-data.

    – It’s not just this cloud or because its was a cheap offer, but anyone’s I think. (You probably need something like Tor support to do useful work) – o.k to keep some photos there but not backups,

    1. Cloud has its applications. I use the backup rule of 3. Keep 3 copies of your data. I have a NAS, 2 actually, but I still store things in Onedrive, Google, Amazon Photos and a few other services with big free data (Box where I have 50gb and Mega which is another 50gb) and it all works well for me. I use Onedrive for files I’ll want to use across my PCs and on my mobile devices, I use Google for Photos and Music and Amazon Photos as a Photo Dump. It’s all very cohesive and I don’t have any issues with speeds, etc. I have whatever I have on these on my NASes as well and then I have a large backup connected to my PC. So 2 copies of my data are here in my home but incase the unthinkable happens, I also have my important data, photos and my music living off-site.

      Large files are always going to be a problem. I don’t really have many of these to worry about. I store sensitive data in 1 large encrypted drive that I copy to Onedrive, Mega and Box now and again but this isn’t a big deal because I really don’t have to download or upload often and the changes are incremental for Onedrive. I no longer backup Windows 10 because it’s so easy to set it back up if something goes wrong and all my games are again, cloud-based so no biggie there.

  2. Still, a SSD, Solid State Drive, survives the knock or fall better than a mechanical hard drive
