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.

  1. As I do a lot of music production and we take a lot of video and pics here, I would say 4TB would be a great family backup drive.

  2. We love to take photos, I mean pbotos of anything, my husband and sins gaming, our documents, my recipes so the 5TB is a big help. Thank you

  3. Oh mna with how big video games are these days I feel like even 4tb isn’t enough. After the next Steam sale I’d probably be filling up to of these bad boys.

  4. 6 DIFFERENT 1000GB storage UNITS would be ideal in MY home to backup data on MY computers.

    500GB IS NOT enough AND I NEED MULTIPLE UNITS IN CASE ONE OR MORE UNITS BREAKS DOWN, SO I HAVE MY DATA BACKED UP ON OTHER UNITS.

  5. I’m a hoarder of computer files, I never delete a thing. I need at least 4TB for everything, but would probably be safer with 5 or more!

  6. Nowadays I think that 4TB would be sufficient to back up files, pictures, videos and, games.

  7. One will win the 500GB One Touch SSD woild be perfect for my childs homeschooling and using the drawing tablet. Myself I could definitely use the 4TB Seagate Firecuda Gaming Dock for gaming xbox one.

  8. 500GB is not sufficient for my needs. I create movies and videos and that requires alot of storage.

  9. 4TB would be a good cushion for the next few years. Wouldn’t have to worry bout projects getting too big haha.

  10. Right now 500GB would be perfect, normally i dont do too many backups but now there is always a chance of doing it if i win one of the awesomes data storages you guys are giving away.

  11. 4TB seems the sweet spot for storage for me. Already have 2 1TB drives with full of stuff that I hoarded over the years and not much left to store the pictures of my daughter. Currently using the Google Photos to save them, but I would love to have a local copy just in case .

  12. This 500gb backup drive would make a nice addition to the 1 TB drive I already have that is filling fast.

  13. I have no idea. But We are three here and need a lot of back up. Also a whole lotta of pictures to protect
