Upgrade your storage with the Seagate BarraCuda 8TB hard drive on sale for $130

The Seagate BarraCuda 8TB internal hard drive (opens in new tab) is down to $129.99 on Amazon. That's the lowest price we've ever seen on Amazon. We even shared a deal on this drive a few months ago when it dropped to $150 because that was the lowest price at the time. It has been selling around that price ever since, but today it has found an all-new low. Lucky you. The drive is back-ordered by a few days, but you can order now to save instead of worrying that the price might increase later.

The BarraCuda is designed to be as cost-effective as possible, which is why the price is so low for so much space. If finding a great balance between price and functionality is right up your alley, then so is this drive. It's still as fast as a SATA connection allows for, and it comes with Instant Secure Erase software so you can safely retire your old drives if this one is replacing them. There are other security features that allow you to encrypt your data as well.

The 8TB capacity means you can do so much more. Save all your photos, start a video editing hobby, collect your media all in one place. Do whatever you want to do without worrying about the space you are taking up. Time to become a digital media hoarder. And there's nothing wrong with that!

The drive also has a 256MB Cache and uses Seagate's MTC technology. Your PC can work with this technology to reach all-new performance levels. It will load installed applications, games, and files, faster than ever before. While this might not be the same speed as an SSD, even an external one like this Plugable SSD that's on sale right now, it will be faster than any standard hard drive you've been using for the last several years.

Users give it 4.6 stars out of 5 based on 3,190 reviews (opens in new tab), and it comes with a two-year warranty.
