The Seagate Duet external hard drive only offers 1 TB of internal storage and uses USB 3.0 connectivity, but comes with one free year of Amazon Drive Unlimited Storage and automatic cloud backup support, all for just $99.99 USD.

External hard drives with a capacity of 1 TB are ubiquitous now, but the new Seagate Duet comes with a twist - in addition to the internal storage space offered, it also comes with one free year of Amazon Drive Unlimited Storage and automatic cloud backup capabilities.

Seagate Duet is a rather regular external drive, including a classic hard drive and no special connectivity options. It weighs 0.27 pounds, measures 0.4X3X4.5 inches, connects to PCs or Macs via USB 3.0, but can also backup files from smartphones and tablets thanks to the Amazon Drive mobile app. Unfortunately, the free year of Amazon Drive Unlimited Storage offer only applies to customers in the US.

Those interested can already pre-order the Seagate Duet got $99.99 USD via Amazon. Shipments are scheduled to begin at the end of next week. The cloud storage plan bundled is worth $59 USD and should be used within two months after the purchase date.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
