You can’t have too many external hard drives. At least, that’s my philosophy. I’d rather have several external hard drives than one very large capacity internal hard drive. So, here’s your chance to win a brand new Seagate 1 terabyte USB 3.0 2.5″ external hard drive to store all those backups you’ve been meaning to create. 🙂

The official description is “Seagate Expansion 1TB USB 3.0 2.5″ Portable External Hard Drive STBX1000101 Black” – and DCT readers now have the chance to win this brand new external hard drive absolutely free.
