Amazon is now offering the first notable deal on Seagate’s latest consumer-recycled Ultra Touch 5TB External Hard Drive. The regularly $140 drive hit Amazon for the first time back in April and is now down at $126.40 shipped. This is a new all-time low and the best price we can find as well. While hard disc drives are never going to be able to produce the transfer speeds of an SSD, they do make for far more affordable backup drives. We have seen HDDs come in for less than the roughly $25 per TB you’re scoring here today, but this is still about 50% below the price of a solid-state solution and comes with the added bonus of being environmentally-conscious. Seagate says this drive is made of “at least 30% post-consumer recycled materials” with a look designed to reflect its nature-forward approach alongside USB-C connectivity and compatibility with PC, Mac, and Chromebook. More details below.
