In today’s computing age, you cannot go without having an external hard drive, which is why today’s Amazon deal is one you should really take advantage of since it has the Seagate Expansion 500 GB Portable External Hard Drive on sale for $54.99, down from its listed price of $79.99. The hard drive is great for when you are traveling and have to take essential info with you on the go.

It’s perfect for storing and accessing your photos, music, and other files. This drive is powered from the USB cable and there’s no software to install at all, making it a cinch to use! You can also use it to back up your computer or laptop so that you always have essential files stored somewhere else incase your computer fails or encounters some trouble. Plus, it is automatically recognized by Windows operating system, so there is no software to install and nothing to configure. Saving files is easy too: just drag-and-drop.

Instantly add more storage to your computer with the Expansion’s USB 3.0 interface since its performance offers vastly increased transfer speeds over USB 2.0, yet it’s backwards-compatible with USB 2.0 ports–so it works with nearly all desktops and laptops. It also comes with an 1-year warranty.
