Get a 320GB USB hard drive for $69

Recertified by Seagate, the glam 320GB FreeAgent external drive plugs into Windows and Mac systems.


Got storage? You can always use more, whether for backing up your hard drive, housing your multimedia library, migrating from old PC to new, or whatever. Here's your chance to score a big drive on the cheap: eCost has the Seagate-recertified 320GB FreeAgent on sale for $69.

This is an external USB drive, and a rather stylish-looking one at that: The espresso-brown finish is complimented by an amber light strip. The drive comes formatted for Windows but can be reformatted for use with Macs. There's no bundled backup software, however, and the warranty expires after 90 days.

My NAS tanked over the weekend (the horror!), so I'm in the market for some temporary backup storage while I decide on a replacement. It's rare to find an external drive with this much capacity for this little cabbage. Score!
