Holiday Gift Idea 4: A Seagate SSD that gives the gift of peace of mind

The Seagate BarraCuda Fast SSD.

The Seagate BarraCuda Fast SSD

It seems that no matter how hard we try, storage space is something we can never have too much o. After all, our lust for digital documents, photos, save games, and memories will only grow now that we snap and dabble with ever-higher quality photos and videos on the go.

So what can we do? We can build or buy a NAS for the house, but that is an expensive option and it isn't portable either. The quick and economical option is to go for an external storage device. And of these, there are many, with multiple capacities and connectivity options like these from Seagate.

One of the latest you can get is the Seagate BarraCuda Fast SSD.

Aside from offering users up to 2TB of storage capacity, this external SSD uses the USB-C interface and offers read/write speeds of up to 540MB/s. It's not the speediest external SSD option, but it's still a multitude of times faster than any standard hard-drive-based external storage and it won't set you back much either. Sounds like a new sweet-spot external storage drive, doesn't it?

The exterior is shock-resistant and features a green LED accent light, so users know when it's in use. Seamlessly connect to a Mac, PC, or laptop using the provided USB-C cable and help keep files protected and synced with the included backup software and Sync Plus software. 

Easily edit, organise, store, and share your full-resolution photos from anywhere with a 2-month complimentary membership to Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan too.
