1TB Portable USB 3.0 HD for $80 – Deal Alert

Seagate 1TB Portable Drive Sale

Amazon currently has a good deal on a bus-powered (i.e., it runs off the computer’s USB power) USB 3.0 external hard drive at 1TB capacity for $79.99.

Details here at Amazon.  (Make sure you select the 1TB from the drop-down menu circled in the screenshot above.)

As I’ve pointed out before, USB 3.0 is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 ports.  I regularly use a USB 3.0 drive on both my USB 2.0 MacBook and my USB 3.0 desktop and it works like a charm.

Was this an at a failblog entry, the image captured from the website clearly says 500GB, not 1TB ;-)

The description says the same; however, when you select the “size dropdown menu” as I pointed out, the product changes, which is why I tried to be specific about doing so.

The price has gone up. It is now $89.99.
The 2.0 version is still available at $79.99
