Do you find yourself running low on storage space for photographs, vacation videos, and everything else that gets shoveled onto a hard drive? It always seems to happen sooner than we anticipate. If you don't want to delete your data, the solution is splurge on a large capacity HDD, and right now there is a sale on Seagate's capacious 8TB Barracuda Pro (ST8000DM005).
Both Newegg and Amazon have it on sale for $320, which is about an $80 savings over its MSRP. That works out to 4 cents per gigabyte.
The Barracuda Pro is Seagate's performance oriented series with a SATA 6Gbps interface, 7,200 RPM spindle speed, and a generous 256MB of cache. Seagate's 8TB model has a rated sustained data transfer of 220MB/s (maximum). You can view the rest of the specs here (PDF), along with how the drive compares with other capacities in the Barracuda Pro family.
