Black Friday served its purpose well for you this year. Not only did you finish all of your holiday shopping early while saving tons of money in the process, but you also managed to score some great new gear for yourself. Make sure that sleek and speedy new laptop you bought doesn’t turn into a headache by backing up all of your data regularly, and there’s no better way to do that than with an external hard drive; cloud backups are nice, but your data will never be as well-protected in the cloud as it is on a local hard drive that hackers cannot access.

From now through the end of the day on December 31, Amazon is offering great discounts on a number of portable hard drives from Toshiba that range in size and price. BGR has gone through them all, and we’ve selected six external hard drives in particular that offer good ratings and deep price cuts. You’ll find them all below in no particular order, and make sure you sign up for a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime if you don’t already have it, so that each of these drives will be shipped to your door for free in two days.
