expiredSeagate Desktop 6TB Internal Hard Drive $200 shipped (orig. $350)

The Newegg store on eBay is offering the Seagate Desktop 6TB 3.5-Inch Internal Drive retail kit for only $199.99 shipped. That’s $150 off the list price, $30 less than Amazon’s current listing and the lowest we could find for it.

This Seagate HDD has a 6TB storage capacity with SATA III, 6Gb/s NCQ interface. You can install this HDD in a desktop or all-in-one PCs. Or you can use it for home servers, PC-based game systems, or Network attached storage devices (NAS).

Amazon customers gave it 4.2/5 stars and left great reviews.

If you’re looking for a high capacity external HD we found the WD My Book 6TB (External) Hard Drive for a low $200 earlier this week. We also found some less expensive NAS solutions on Newegg:

expiredWD Black2 Dual Drive 2.5″ 120GB Solid State Drive + 1TB Hard Drive Kit $120 shipped (Reg. $180+)

Newegg offers the WD Black2 Dual Drive (WD1001X06XDTL) 2.5″ 120 GB SSD + 1 TB hard drive kit for $149.99. Coupon code ESCAKAS25 brings the final price down to $119.99 shipped. That’s a savings of $60+ off the regular price, $30 better than Amazon and the lowest that we’ve seen it go for.

This dual hard drive combination pairs a SSD with a traditional mechanical hard drive, allowing for data to be stored in either location depending on the needs of the user. Much like a fusion drive from Apple, this setup in theory offers flexibility that other solutions do not. This hard drive includes a five year warranty and a SATA to USB cable. At this time, it appears the drive is only supported on Windows machines.

At Amazon, this storage solution is rated 3.8/5 stars by over 100 users.
