HGST Touro 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive $40 shipped (Orig. $69)

Newegg is offering the HGST Touro 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Drive (0S03801) for $54.99, but using code EMCKAKT73 during checkout will drop your total down to $39.99 shipped. That’s $30 under the original listing, $12 below Amazon and the best price we can find.

This is a 5400 RPM portable drive with USB 3.0 (backwards compatible with 2.0). It comes with two levels of data protection allowing you to access copies of important files “anytime, anywhere, from any smartphone or computer web browser when using the 3GB of cloud storage.” While this model has a 4.4/5 star rating from only 24 Amazon customers, the previous gen model sits with a 4+ rating from nearly 300.
