Modern computing accessories like Seagate storage solutions help boost productivity and security and are great for anyone who works from home. Some people want an ultra portable solution like the One Touch SSD that is light-weight and compact yet still able to store a lot of information. Others prefer a massive Firecuda Gaming Dock with the super fast Thunderbolt 3 connection to get the data to and from your computer with minimal delay, you know Seagate is a great option to handle your data. This contest has both options available as prizes: one winner will get the portable solution, one winner will get the high-capacity solution.

Seagate protects you from putting all your eggs in one basket

Idioms are beautiful language tools that, among other things, enable us to address complex topics in simple terms that are accessible to everyone. The idiom above about eggs in a basket is a great example: the eggs are your data; the basket is the harddrive in your computer; the risk is to lose all data if that one storage location fails or falls or is stolen, etc.

Industry experts have been advising people for decades to back up data. There was a time when that meant using multiple floppy disks; now it is much easier thanks to the options like those from Seagate.

How much storage do you need?

More than you think, is the short answer. If your data is mostly word files, pdfs, some image, for a small family or small business, then get 500 GB or 1 TB. This amount of storage is available in very small packages these days: like the Ultra Portable prize offered in this contest. Learn more about this prize in this article on the blog.

If you are a gamer and you need storage for huge game files, game downloads, or video files, then you need at least a couple terabytes and this contest has a 4TB prize that will serve your needs. I actually sent this product to Dave Neufeld for a review from a gamers viewpoint, and to Brad Moon for a review from a productivity viewpoint. Dave found that as a gamer, this was the ultimate epicenter of his gaming setup. Brad, however, suggested that you might not get the most from this unless you regularly managed large files, and had a computer capable of capitalizing on the high data transfer rates from the Firecuda.

So think about it: how much storage do you think you really need in your home? That’s the question to answer.

Win Seagate Storage Contest Rules and Regulations

Good luck.


  1. I have photos and games and other digital information you don’t realize how much you collect. I’m already at 20TB of storage

  2. I think 500GB would be ideal in my home to backup data on my computers. But if you ask my husband he would probably say we need more.

  3. 500GB is enough as long as the games aren’t going to be replayable or receive size increasing updates for years.

  4. The more storage the better! It would be nice to save all the family photos in one place! 1TB wood be ideal for our family.

  5. How much storage is enough: that is a difficult question. A 500GB SSD (or larger) would be glorious strictly for the speed. However, as a guy that likes to capture game play videos and edit them, a larger 4TB drive would be sweet. The dream would be a 4TB SSD but my wallet is a tad light for that currently.

  6. I need more! I’m always buying more storage as I have a lot of images to backup plus I like to have backups of all the audiobooks I own. Add to that storage for gaming and I am a bottomless pit! Lol!

  7. When it comes to storage, the more the merrier! I’m a father and a amateur photographer so I’m sure you can imagine how much storage is important to me!
