At just $7 Prime shipped, everyone should get this bus powered USB to SATA 3 portable SSD/HDD enclosure

Pardon the interruption but did you catch that Aukey SuperSpeed 2.5 Inch USB 3.0 to SATA I, II, III Hard Drive Disk External Enclosure for 9.5mm & 7mm 2.5″ SATA HDD & SSD for $6.99 Prime Shipped after coupon code J2VVKIWF in the accessories post?

We’ve (almost) never seen a quality USB 3 enclosure for under $10 so this is a pretty monumental deal on something almost everyone should have a use for. If you have old laptops with still usefull hard drives or portable SSDs/hard drives lying around, you can pop them in the $7 enclosure and have yourself a speedy mass storage in a compact package.

Even better, take advantage of some of 9to5Toys’ best naked SSD finds and pop that speed demon in this USB->SATA1/2/3 enclosure for quick access to a lot of data. Here’s a Samsung 500GB for $135 or a Sandisk 1TB for $200

I bought one of these so I know many of you out there will be interested.

If you been looking to upgrade your home computers or network, today’s Amazon Gold Box is bound to have some deals for you. You can find nearly 5 star rated SATA 3 SSDs from Transcend and PNY in 128GB-480GB sizes range from $39.99-$124.99. Some match for all time lows.

If you are want to up your NAS game, you can pick up a highly-rated 6TB Internal Seagate Hard Drives for $214.99/ea. Where to put them? I love this QNAP TAS idea of adding a Streamer with Remote Keyboard to their NASes allowing you an end to end solution for putting large amounts of videos on your TVs. At $159/$259 for 1/2 drive bays and 4/5 star ratings you really can’t go wrong here.

If you want a monster NAS, Western Digital NAS  are $362.99 for 8TB or $438.99 for 12TB. These are no brainer prices and frankly cost less than the bare drives inside them. If you have a superior Synology NAS, you could buy this 12TB WD NAS, rip out the drives and still be ahead.

For those looking to up their networking game, Amazon offers the DD-WRT compatible Linksys WRT1900ACS Dual Band router in their classic Blue enclosure. This is basically one of the best  routers out there at its lowest price ever. Does your current router need to reach further out? Want to steam music while you garden or mow your yard? Pick up one of two TP-Link AC Range extenders from $32.99-$79.99. Or, if you want to extend your Ethernet network over your powerlines, nab this D-Link AV2 2000 Gigabit extender for $59.99. Speaking of D-Link Gigabit, I don’t recall a good 24-port Gigabit hub being less than $65. Today’s the day.

There are some other knick knacks inside today’s Goldbox as well starting at just $4. Check out everything.
