Hey, Black Friday is winding down. We've seen a lot of deals come and go. You've still got time, though, to take advantage of a few of the deals that are left. The Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB External Hard Drive is down to $49.99 on Amazon. This is the lowest price ever on the Silver version. We have seen the Black one go this low before, but those deals didn't usually include a full year subscription to Mylio Create and two months of the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan. That's a lot of extra value for a drive that usually sells around $70 without all that stuff.
The Seagate Backup Plus Slim is historically one of the best external hard drives around. It has always been a top contender even though it has been around for a while. It's sleek, lightweight, and has a large capacity for its size. It's extremely portable and designed to be slipped into any pack on your way out the door. Use it to keep your favorite media with you at all times.
With 2TB of space you'll be able to keep tons of photos and other files with you. The drive works seamlessly with Mac and Windows and connects via a USB 3.0 port. That gives you some great data transfer speeds up to 5 Gbps.
You can even use this drive as a backup. It is designed so that you can schedule daily, weekly, or monthly backups. If you plan to use this with Time Machine on your Mac, you may have to reformat it first. So make that decision before putting any files on it you don't want to lose.
Seagate backs up the Backup Plus with a two-year limited warranty. Users give it 4.4 stars out of 5 based on 344 reviews.
