External storage is basically an essential to any setup in 2016. With 4K video and higher resolution files becoming more prevalent and our devices slimming down, the need for a little extra room is a necessity. We see plenty of deals on portable and desktop hard drives here at 9to5Toys. Each type offers its own positives and negatives, depending on what you’re in need of. Portable hard drives do not require a separate power source but are often limited in storage capacity. Desktop options flip the script but can be a hassle (and dangerous to your data) to move around frequently.

Seagate claims to have solved this problem with the “world’s first USB-powered desktop drive”. The Innov8 (clever name) uses USB 3.1 technology to provide enough juice for 8TB of storage. Full details on this technology and pricing below.

You can never have too much storage. USB flash drives, internal solid-state drives, iPhone memory — more is always better. This versatile WD My Passport Wireless External Hard Drive adds 2TB to nearly any gadget you own with a Wi-Fi or USB connection. It typically sells for $200, but Amazon currently has it on sale for $159.99 shipped, which is the best price we’ve ever seen.wd-my-passport-wireless-box

Miraculously, this deal nets you twice as much storage as the 1TB model and is more than $4 cheaper. That’s a great price in its own right, but for a limited time, Amazon will also toss in a 16GB microSDHC card with adapter for free (~$9 value).

Add the memory card and 2TB drive to your Amazon shopping cart from this special promo. The cost of the card will be automatically deducted from your order during checkout.

You can connect it over USB 3.0 to transfer tons of data at high-speeds like any portable hard drive, but this drive goes much further. Built-in Wireless-N with MIMO enables you to save and access files on any iOS or Android device. What’s more, it can serve up to 4 HD video streams to mobile devices at a time without the need for a live internet connection.

According to WD, you can expect up to 6 hours of video streaming on a full charge of the rechargeable battery. Use the built-in SD slot to transfer images from our DSLR camera to your iPhone on-the-fly. Again, this isn’t your everyday USB hard drive — check out the full feature list at its Amazon product page. Rated 3.4 out of 5 stars from 227 reviewers. expand full story
