Hot Deal: 1TB External Hard Drive

1 TB External Hard Drive (USB or eSATA) – $65 after rebate – Deal Ends 10/04/2010
Newegg.com – Cavalry Passio 1TB USB 2.0 / eSATA Black External Hard Drive CAXH3701T0.

I’ll tell you why this is a good deal, and possibly why its a GREAT deal. I personally purchased the above listed external hard drive about 3 months ago and it works great, fast and quiet.  If you need storage, but do not like opening up your PC and installing hardware this is a good deal. I challenge you to find a 1TB external hard drive for only $65. Plus you will have an eSATA cable already attached to a back-end PC bracket which you can keep for later or resell (it is packaged separately). However, if you are comfortable with installing new hardware onto your PC’s motherboard, then this is a GREAT deal. One of the main reason I purchased this drive was because it included the above mentioned eSATA cable already attached to a back-end PC bracket, which allows you to reuse that eSATA connection for other eSATA ready devices.  I received the external HD in quick typical Newegg fashion, opened up my PC connected the eSATA port, and powered on the PC and the hard drive.  It behaved flawlessly, even after a major power outage due to storms.  Newegg is also exceptional with customer services and speedy deliveries!
