This 12TB external drive supports USB 3.0 and is rated an overall 4.7 out of five stars on Amazon. The discounted price means you’re only paying around a cent and a half per gigabyte of storage, which is a pretty good deal.
This 6TB drive will only cost you $94.99, which also equates to roughly a penny and a half per gig. It also supports USB 3.0 for faster transfer speeds and is rated an overall 4.4 stars on Amazon.
LaCie calls this drive “the smallest rugged around,” and while the added protection will cost you a bit more per gigabyte, this 5TB portable drive is still a deal. LaCie said the drive is drop, crush, and water resistant, making it great for those who want external storage but also don’t want to worry about abusing it.
If you want a rugged external hard drive but are more concerned with price than capacity, this 1TB model of the LaCie Rugged Mini is a great deal at $52.49. And let’s be realistic: 1TB is still a lot of storage.
This 12 TB drive from Western Digital is marketed toward gamers who need to expand the storage capacity of their consoles, but it still works as an external drive for regular use. It’s also a 7200 RPM drive, so it can move files at 250Mb/s for faster access. It’s not cheap, even on sale, though: This drive will cost you $220 on Prime Day.
This drive is light on storage capacity at only 2TB, but it’s also slim, light, ultra portable, and cheap for Amazon Prime Day.
Another gamer-focused drive, this 8TB model features two front-facing USB ports so it can charge and act as a pass-through for USB devices while connected to a computer.
It’s hard to believe storage has become so compact, but with smaller sizes comes higher prices, as is the case with this 1TB microSD card. It normally costs $391.24, but on Amazon Prime Day you can get it for 59% off the regular asking price.
