What is the best deal right now on portable external USB hard drives? I found a Toshiba 1.5 TB portable external USB 3.0 hard drive at Best Buy on sale for $90 and was wondering if that was a good deal or not?

Thank you

Good deal depends on your budget, but 1.5 Toshiba for 90 is allot cheaper then they usually are. I have the 1tb toshiba Canvio drives at my shop we use on networks we paid almost 100 for each. You defiantly wan't USB 3.0 (its backwards compatible) or USB 3.0 /Esata if your primary computer supports it. Doing Data backups or file transfers over usb 2.0 takes significantly longer then USB 3.0.
