Fast and massive, the Seagate Backup Plus Desktop is an excellent backup drive for any USB 3.0-enabled computer or server.

This mammoth Samsung drive features auto-backup software and a three-year warranty.

Next month's system update will introduce a bevy of features for Microsoft's latest console.
