Amazon External Hard Drive Deals [Black Friday]

Nov 24, 2011 - 6 Comments

External Hard Drive If you’re looking to buy some extra media storage for your computer, or you just need a larger Time Machine backup drive, pay attention, because Amazon is having a great sale on external hard drives. The best part is they’re not limiting these discounts to Black Friday, so they’re live now. Most are USB 2.0 but there’s a couple Firewire drives in the mix too if you don’t mind paying extra for the interface. All drives can be formatted for Mac or PC compatibility.

Free shipping, and no lines? Works for me. Don’t miss Amazon’s internal hard drive and SSD deals too.

Portable External Hard Drives

Interestingly enough, some of the portable drives are almost as cheap as the less portable variants, typically the difference between the two is 2.5″ vs 3.5″ drives, USB powered vs AC adapter, and what can be a substantial difference in weight and size.

Finally, if you’re brave enough to endure the hoards on Black Friday itself, here’s some of the best deals out there at retailers:

  • Toshiba 320 GB Hard Drive – $29.99 – Best Buy
  • Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Desk 3TB External USB 3.0/2.0 Hard Drive – $99.99 – Best Buy
  • Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 750GB External USB 2.0/3.0 Portable Hard Drive – $59.99 – Best Buy
  • Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 750GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive – $59.99 – Best Buy
  • Western Digital My Passport 500GB USB 3.0 Hard Drive – $47.99 – OfficeMax
  • Western Digital My Book Essential 1TB USB Hard Drive – $64.99 – OfficeMax

    The prices of hard drives went up insanely fast after the floodings in Thailand. These prices aren’t low at all.
