We know what it's like to need more storage space than you currently have. That's why we wanted to take a moment to highlight this Amazon deal for any readers shopping on a budget. As of right now, you can pick up the 16 TB Seagate Expansion external hard drive for $308. It's been listed as high as $389 in the past, making this a 21% discount.
The drive uses a USB 3.0 interface to communicate with the PC. Seagate doesn't list the official read/write speeds for the hard drive. If you’re looking for speed, check out our Best SSDs list for some recommendations. This is not an SSD, so write times might be slower, but storage capacity is what you're after in a device like this, and this drive holds an impressive 16TB.
It doesn't take up much space, nor is it a heavy device. The hard drive measures in at 6.93" x 4.75" x 1.44" and weighs only 2.09lbs. This makes it both unobtrusive and portable.
If you want to check out this offer, visit the Seagate Expansion product page on Amazon. According to the price history, it has been offered as low as $294—you may want to keep a close eye on this one in case the deal changes.
