Recommendation for good deal on 2 tb drive?
« on: September 13, 2018, 07:59:02 PM »
Reliable and hopefully cheap. My Passport is doing weird stuff but it's three years old. I do have Backblaze but don't want to have to screw with recovery. Thanks!

I shop by price / size and I'm noticing that the best deals on that metric are the 4 TB and 8 TB external drives.


The bargain basement price is $20/TB.


4 TB for $80 external drive is a great deal.
8 TB for $160 external drive is a great deal.


I recently got an email from Newegg, I think, offering a Toshiba 1 TB external for $40. The case always costs something to manufacture, so they want to recoup that.


I prefer WD or HGST, since I had some trouble with some Seagates around 2009-2010.

Only drive of mine that ever died (so far!) was a Seagate, so I tend to stay away from them. Though sometimes it's hard when you see them at Costco.

WD/HGST or Toshiba. HGST is part of WD.
DPA4061 HEB/AT943 -> CA-UGLY -> R-09
Samson C02/Superlux S502/iSK Little Gem -> DR-680MKII
